When I was 42 my doctor told me I was "too young" to be in perimenopause.
I was fully menopausal by the age of 49.

Why keep the fish oil in the freezer?

The thing about ADHD is that non-ADHD people can't imagine how very different our minds are. I grew up seeing only through ADHD filters and lived most of life not even comprehending what it would be like to be at all "normal" (non-ADHD). Is ADHD my "normal" then?
Yeah, people with "normal" brains think "Oh, I lose my keys now and then" or
"I forget what I was going to do next sometimes." They have no idea what it's
like when you can't keep track of anything every single day of your life.

Keeping it in the freezer eliminates "fish burps". I advise people to do it so I never considered not doing it, though I can't say I've ever experienced a fish burp!

I've been taking it for 15 years and never had a fishy burp. Good thing because
I would never remember to take it if I kept it in the freezer.

The trajectory this thread has taken has somehow reminded me to take it 3 days in a row!

Talking Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

... you have to rewind the show you are watching 5 times in a row because you keep daydreaming during an important part.

... you get food you love but don't have an appetite because you are on a stimulant so you have to make yourself eat it.

... you re-read the same forum instructions 3 times because you started thinking about stuff you wanted to post halfway through.

This thread is fun! I'm a new member, so I'm enjoying the discovery process!

...you wake up and have to go really bad but you run past the bathroom to turn on the coffeemaker to save 30 seconds. After almost ****ting yourself you spend the rest of the day twiddling your thumbs.

... your hungry cat distracts you in the morning by meowing for breakfast while you are getting dressed, and you set about feeding her... then realize you are only half dressed. And you’d already opened all the windows!

You know you have ADHD when ...

... you pick up the cell phone and it's dead and you have to plug it in
and wait an hour before you can use it.


... you've mislaid the cell phone and when you try to call it and listen
for the ringer so you can find it, the battery is dead so it doesn't ring.


... you pick up the phone to use it and it doesn't work and you realize
you should have paid the phone bill three days ago!
This is certainly all very true you made me smile coz now I know I'm not the only one

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you leave your car running to quickly run back in to a clients business just to grab your phone you forgot after meeting. You know better than to leave your car running with the keys in it. I suddenly realize it was safe because I locked the doors in my hurry.

Iím sure my client was impressed.
