Re: Signs you DON'T have ADHD?

You procrastinate a lot? So do many students and lazy people...
You can't focus? maybe you just have a naturally very short attention span
Yes but this applies across the board. Many people have a hard time with at least one thing they procrastinate or loss focus on, but adhd people have a hard time on many things..I think it has to be 6 or more areas of your life in 2 or more ways? Or maybe reverse that...
Being lazy is more like a choice...Your mom asks you to do the dishes and you choose to wait for someone else to do them. You know she asked for help but why cant anyone else do it? Or your mom asks you to do the dishes. You start unloading the dishwasher but UPS arrives with a package. You walk away from the dishwasher to get and open the package and its your new woodworking set. You decide to assemble the tools and try it out real quick on a scrap of wood. Before you know it 2 hours have passed and the door to the dishwasher was left open with half of the clean dishes in it still and a sink full of dirty ones. You didnt meant to ignore your mom and you do not think it should be anyone elses' job, you literally forgot because you got distracted.

Or you know you have a doc appt tomorrow at 8am. You get up a little late and are runnning around trying to get out the door. You cant remember where you left your keys or phone. You find them, grab the forms you need to bring and show up at your appt without your insurance or ID. Even though you know this is an obvious need for any appt, you just didnt think about it because your were running late and had such a hard time finding your phone and keys.
