Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

... you get a call from your grandmother asking why you haven't banked that cheque for $50 she sent you for your birthday three months ago, and you honestly cannot remember where you put it. You vow to look for it and bank it tomorrow. Four years later when you move out of the house you were in, you find the cheque buried under one of the many piles of 'important' papers, such as catalogues from that era.

when you meet someone, they tell you their name in a conversation, and during that same conversation you forget it

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You are looking for the receipt for the expensive device that broke while under warranty

You dig through piles of random paper with many random receipts for random trips to the grocery store thrown in, but the important receipt you are looking for is nowhere to be found

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You need to wear a watch but you have lost all your watches in one way or another and constantly have to buy new ones. Three years later you finally do a thorough clean out of your closet and find your last watch burried in the farthest, darkest corner of your closet. Figures.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you realize that keeping the receipts for all the things you impulsively buy is ultimately a more effective way of saving money than using your savings account.

(because your checking account usually hovers somewhere around zero but when you return the things you bought impulsively you suddenly have a hundred dollars you didn't think you had!)

When you get to the store, you realise you've forgotten what you were supposed to buy.

You go to drop off a movie, get to the location and realize you have left the movie in the DVD player.

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!

i seriously thought i was the only one with these problems!!!!

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You have lost your keys, debit card and cell phone
You are asked to do something and you return without completing the task
You forget what someone just said to you
You ask people to repeat questions
You are bad at following directions
You have to read something more than once to understand it
You are often told to calm down
You jump from one activity to another
You forget doctors appointments
People in your life are mad at you because you do not pick up your cell.. this is because you forget to charge it
You get anxious speaking in front of a group of people
You are defensive
This is just some of the many things I go through
