Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When your sitting on the couch look at the time and swiftly put your coat and boots. Then as soon as you pick up your car keys you forgot why you were such in a hurry... -_-

When you're about to go out and you put one shoe on.... then sit in the house with one shoe on for the next hour, because something caught your interest.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

I know exactly what I need to do, I'm all ready, but I want to do what I can not do for another hour and I don't want to do what I should for that hour so I'm not doing anything.

Why is everything so difficult?

... when you have to be somewhere and should be rushing but instead you're reading this thread next to the pile of dirty laundry you were planning on doing but didn't.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You finally make your way out the door to go somewhere, laden with all the stuff you "need" to take with you, say your grand goodbye to whoever's in the house, exit.....5 seconds later "Uh...I'm back I forgot my phone"...run around the house 3 times in one minute..."oh never mind it's in the car" ...leave.

That's my daughter. My phone rarely leaves my jeans pocket, only when I'm
using it or charging it. (which reminds me ...)

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

Well it is Jan 18th and it just dawned on me that we should probably take down the Christmas tree. I can't be the only one who hasn't done this yet.

I doubt you're the only one. We didn't even put up a tree this year or last year.
My son-in-law died on Dec 12 two years ago. The only reason we had a tree
that year is because we've always put the tree up the weekend after Thanks-
giving. My oldest granddaughter graduated and moved 3 hours away the
spring after her dad died, so these two years we spend a few days with her
at Christmas. What's the point in having a tree if we won't be here.

Funny on the lighters! In my case I have a few tubes of lip balm in the coat pocket. LOL!

I get it right. Or just give up.
Hi Lunacie,

Pretty sure I have it too. When a math problem was put in front of me I would get this white noise in my head (like the way the reception used to go on old TV's). I can't think and get this horrible buzzing throughout my body. There were times I literally had to grip my seat just to stay put!

Oddly, during my assessment I was able to repeat very long strings of numbers backwards with little difficulty. Even my psychologist was surprised.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

Yesterday I was driving to a tennis match where I needed to catch the interstate and head south for a few miles. Instead I went north on the interstate towards my office. Luckily I caught my error quickly and was able to get to the match on time. This is why I leave 45 min prior to a match when it should take about 15-20 min to get there. LOL!
