Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When I laugh out loud to myself while driving, because I imagined this:

Doctor (to my father after a visit): Oh, that's probably because you have ADHD.
My mother: Oh YES (nodding emphatically)!! Thank you!
Doctor (turning to my mother): .... and you're Bipolar.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you soap yourself down in the shower, rinse, then can't remember if you soaped yourself the first time. So then you end up washing yourself twice.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You find the top for the jelly in your bathrobe pocket three days after using the jelly. And then it takes three more days to remember to put the top for the jelly in the kitchen (but it doesn't occur to you to just open the fridge and put the top on right then...which is an additional step that takes three more days). At least it was a squeezy tube and the top is sort of superfluous?

"When you soap yourself down in the shower, rinse, then can't remember if you soaped yourself the first time. So then you end up washing yourself twice."

Assuming I live to a reasonably old age, I will have spent approximately 2 years rewashing (argument's sake). What could I have done with those 2 years? Interesting and sad.

When you write a post but decide its better suited else where so cut it and type this here instead because you've become attached to this chat box after 30 minutes of off topic nonsense.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you put the coffee pot, full of fresh coffee in the cupboard.

When you drive off with your coffee in the roof of your car.

When you drive off leaving the kids sled in the parking lot, 30 seconds after telling your wife that you would throw it in the trunk.

When you drive off with the trunk still open and your 6 year old starts yelling "Daddy you left the trunk open. Again"

When your wife finishes telling the kids why they can't do something, so they turn to you, ask the same question, and you say "Sure!" Because you literally didn't hear any of the conversation that just occurred directly in front of you.

When you forgot to take your meds. Again.

When you get distracted by Mickey Mouse playing in the background while making this list and....

You know you have ADHD when you can't focus long enough to ever finish reading a book in your entire life.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You repeatedly forget your username and password to this forum :-P


When you are caught grinning ear to ear while working out at the gym because you were daydreaming so strongly you started to act out your day dream. lol!

When you retype words twice in a row or you miss words completely because you're not paying attention.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you arrive at 10 mins. late to one of your very best friend's wedding this past Saturday. The newlyweds greet you walking up as they are walking away from their finished small ceremony at the beach.

Feel like such a jerk!
