Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you need the provolone as the final ingredient to a well prepared dish, knowing you placed it on the counter with all other ingredients, yet it's nowhere to be found. You then find yourself going from room to room in search of, possibly having 'mis-placed' the cheese...in the bathroom..!
Someone spots you rushing about, talking to yourself, turning over the sofa cushions and asks what you're looking for. You reply with, "I'm looking for the cheese." They then say, "What's that in your hand?" And you snap back at them (because obviously they've asked a stupid question)..."It's provolone. I'm looking for the cheese!!"

"Ooooooh...."

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you walk into the supermarket to get something you specifically wanted and you walk in there and completely forgotten what you were going to get and you stand there thinking away but it doesnt come to you so you look around and buy something else.
You leave the supermarket and get on public transport to go home and on the way home you remember what you needed to get and you feel really peeved off for not getting it lol

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You go to get some medicine, after anxiously looking around the condiments cupboard for ten minutes realise they're never in there. Go to look into the medicine cabinet, seconds later realise you're looking in the freezer, and find out you left a box of BBQ Shapes in there.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

Instead of turning on the stove element you are cooking with you turn on one with a dirty pot or frying pan on it, and don't notice the mistake till you smell the burning crap smell

And you do this a lot

yes I just did it

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

Here's a little snippet of my night...
http://gyazo.com/b01cb92c6e3befefb3cf459bc398fb19
Ok so that's more stupidity that ADD, but here's a little breakdown I gave my fiance who's out of town and missed this near death experience of mine.
" It's A LOT scarier when you rest your head on the counter right in front of the microwave so you can watch the egg bubble... lol BAD IDEA! Now I remember why my grandpa always made *scrambled* eggs in the microwave. whole yolks = tiny bombs made by god himself to remind you of your mortalityyyy!"
"'at first I was all "I'M DEAD!" then I was all "lol... oh." then I was all "PFFFTTT'HAHAHAHA it's EVERYWHERE IN THERE!" then I was all "wow in 3 seconds the entire yolk cooked... impressive!" lol it's like the whites EXPLODED EVERYWHERE but the yolk just kind of stepped out of the bowl in 4 peices to sit on the glass... silly yolk.'"
^^^^ if that's not ADD I don't know what is... besides this next story I shared with my friend on facebook... lol I've got tons of gems like these.

You go to do something, get sidetracked, realize you forgot to do what you originally were supposed to... but by this point, you can't remember for the life of you what you were originally going to do...

yeah usually there is a bit of olive oil in on the element or some crumbs under the element - so something burns and the smell usually clues me in somehow, even if there is no dirty pot or frying pan on the element

just though of another - a real doozy, so bad it needs its own post so sorry to double post
