Me too...and then I was fired 4 months ago. That's when I decided to see a doctor to get figured out. You'd think with a wife, mortgage and a (at the time) 4 month old, I would have had enough incentive to get the job done, but I have always failed in the past and this was nothing new to me...

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You set yourself up to be tested for ADHD because of struggles you're having at work, and plan to keep silent about it until after you get the results.. then the day after you're ADHD evaluation, you have a meeting with your boss to find out you dropped the ball on one of your projects. And instead of taking it like a champ with a promise to do better, you break down in tears because you can't believe you screwed up... then spill to your boss that you're working on it, and you left early for work yesterday to be tested for ADHD... and ramble on about the struggles you've been having... then end up kicking yourself in the booty later for not keeping yourself together.. feeling totally embarrased and pathetic... and now hoping that you do have ADHD so you don't look like a complete toolbox...

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You're packing for a camping trip you've known about for weeks - and it's a complete and utter surprise that you're leaving at 6 AM the next morning. And you think, "what does it matter, I'm just going to forget half the crap I'm supposed to bring anyways"

Your acting hyper/like a raving lunatic and your family friends or co workers ask if you took your meds this morning.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

your lecturer refers to you as a "red herring"

or when another lecturer tells you to settle down cause you are distracting her (thid is inside a class of 80-100 people)

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

..hit "new posts", realize you just did in the other tab, because you get the "you have to wait ten seconds" message. This has happened several times, on several boards.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

-You always have at least 6 tabs open on your browser.
-You never turn your netbook off and after afew weeks of being constantly on it bluescreens because it can't cope with the pressure.
-You have literally hundreds upon thousands of favorites.
-You've had a month to enter a competition to meet your favorite band, and the contest is something you really enjoy (making a video) and you now have only 5 days left to finish it (ARGH!).
-The librarians turn the sign to closed when they see you coming. I got a 50 fine from the council and lost 2 books last time round
-You spend the first week after pay day living like royalty, then the rest living on the bread line (I never learn)...
-You love this forum because it makes you feel like you're not alone in your kwirky ways
