So even if telling the truth or lie I'd be sweating, shaking my leg and hiding my face, lower my gaze, and face of worry. I guess the tale tell sign would be when being accused of something I didn't do I'd make an angry face face or one of disgust. I also have A.D.H.D so I'd be moving around alot, looking around the room to much and lose concentration when being asked to many questions, to the point I'd say I don't know to everything. My arms would be crossed as I'd feel threatened, would be pulling/leaning away and have my feet/body angled away (indicates ready to flee/run away)😔 That's why they need to know your base body lauage.
