Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

when you try to use your phone istead of the TV clicker

when you have to go next door to the neighbor to get help finding the glasses you're blind without - for the THIRD time this week!

when you turn off the chime on your clock because you don't want to be reminded how much time is passing and you STILL haven't done that unappealing chore

when you won't listen to your voicemail for a week because you just KNOW that there's a message in there you'd rather not hear. Then you let the voicemail pile up for TWO weeks because you don't want to have to explain to everyone why you never returned their call.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

Pleased I found this forum!

...When you reach over to pick up the TV remote from the place you 100% put it down not more than 30 seconds ago, and its not there! and you are the only one in the house.
3 days later you find it in the cupboard with the sugar.


...When you know the dose of Concerta 36mg once a day is not enough so decide to self medicate AGAIN and end up taking far too much but can't seem to stop even though it is 11pm .... Just one more ...


... When you can't leave the furniture in one place for more than a week before having to completely re-arrange the room, EVEN THOUGH you know that it only fits one way and inevitably will have to put it all back the way it was when you started !


... When your gf has to ask you 10 times to make her a cuppa, you eventually remember after being mind-washed by the PC again - then 20 minutes later see her get up and re-boil the kettle and fill the cup that you left on the bench with the teabag and milk in !



...When you have to leave things in-front of the front door so you have to physically move them to get out and have no excuse for forgetting the letter you went to the postbox for in the first place.



My most recent encounter
When you realise that the deodorant you are busy spraying under your arm is in-fact the bathroom air-freshener .

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When it takes about 10 times for someone to explain something to you because it just doesn't register or you are too damn persistent and ignore the truth because you want something so badly.
