I walk into someoneís house with several items and I am sure to forget some of them if I donít keep them all together. I am really as absent minded as many people in their 70ís... but Iím only 36. And Iíve been like this as long as I can remember.

So forgettting things occasionally isnít ADHD. But forgetting things so often that it makes life difficult is one of the key signs of ADHD.
Side note ... my memory is actually better now at age 67 than it was in my
30's because I'm taking meds and supplements to treat my adhd and anxiety.
