Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D.

Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

This is how it develops:

I decide to water my garden.

As I turn on the hose, I look over at my car and decide my car needs washing.

As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full.


So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox, when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my cheque book off the table, and see that there is only 1 cheque
left. My extra cheques are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the study to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered. I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.

I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day:

----the car isn't washed,

----the bills aren't paid,

----there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter,

----the flowers don't have enough water,

----there is still only 1 check in my check book,

----I can't find the remote,

----I can't find my glasses,

----and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired.

Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!

GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY.

GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL.

LAUGHING AT YOURSELF IS THERAPEUTIC.

P.S I just remembered.

I LEFT THE WATER RUNNING IN THE DRIVEWAY!

Sounds familiar - LOL Sometimes I have days like that. I start something and then something else pops in my head that I have to get done right away.

I guess I am in the first stages of A.A.A.D.D. tongue.gif

You'll need to make some calls to arrange that. might as well catch up with some old friends while you're on the phone. Where'd you put your address book again?

My ADD was activated at birth, sadly. Still, you just described my entire life. I'm amazed I finished college (the second time).

Hey me, too. When you add in the dyslexia and the auditory processing disorder, I'm lucky to get through the day at work and find my way home. I house clean like this (when I DO house clean.) so you can imagine what my house looks like. I spend more time trying to figure out where I left the cleaner, vaccum, etc. than I do actually cleaning. The really sad thing is that it all gets worse with age!

You know? This really is pretty hilarious because I am Queen of multi-tasking, but that doesn't mean I actually get anything accomplished! One of my sisters and I complain of ourselves doing the above ALL the time. So we definitely have this disorder and glad to have an official name for it and so glad to be amongst friends! wink.gif tongue.gif laugh.gif
