That's an important distinction, and suggesting the ability to control it.I only non-stop talk about things I'm interested in
But this--all of this is just three sentences. This isn't talking non-stop about a fond subject, it's more like a runaway train in the brain. This is why my gut still says ADHD.Rather I'll talk and talk and be enjoying the heck out of myself in talking about whatever the subject is that I enjoy, but then after a while some internal alarm starts to go off (one I've only really developed in recent years with my husband) and I realize I've been talking for quite awhile without allowing anyone else to say anything and then I start looking at the people around me and suspect they might not want to hear anymore because man have I been talking a while, but since they're not being very obvious about it and I can't really tell by their faces if they're bored or disinterested, I guess I'll keep going until someone says something. This "internal alarm" I've developed is really from when my husband will finally just sigh very loudly and give me what I've figured out is a highly sarcastic look and gesture me to continue - I pay attention to him now when I start going on about something I enjoy and look for that exact facial expression and gesture. Of course, this doesn't work well when applied to others, but now that I know it's a problem I have an internal egg-timer so even when I'm not with him and can't cue in on his expressions that I've learned, I still start to suspect when I'm talking too much because of the amount of time he'd usually lose patience with me.
This is what my brain used to do all the time, and I truly thought most peoples' brains worked this way. They don't. This is atypical. If you're happy with your brain doing this, great.
