Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When Your arms, legs,fingers toes, mouth, etc are always constantly in motion and all you want to do is be still for 2 minutes but you can't. When you want to tell your mind to shut the hell up and stop talking so much so I can read this book, play this game, drive a car or watch a movie.LOL

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you walk up the street you've been walking up almost everyday for the past 16 years, stop in front of a mansion-sized house and wonder, "How long's that been there for?"

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

Impulsively buy a massive TV because of the bargain price and sheer size of it...
Only to have it damaged when you send it up to yourself in University
...unable to claim back money on the insurance because you bought the wrong bloody insurance .

Bye bye 50 inch tv .

Immediately after putting your tooth brush back in the draw, forget that you indeed did brush your teeth.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

You discover something new in your house every day - and upon reporting your discovery to a family member, find out that it isn't new at all.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

... When you're inspired by so many examples that you come up with several of your own, but by the time you go to share them, you forget.

... So you go back and start reading examples again figuring you will remember your own, but instead remember new ones!

... Annnnd once again forget what they were by the time you get to the post response page.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

you leave the house to run errands and feel positive about it because you remember to take your keys, wallet and phone... And after driving 30 mins into town, you not only forget what you needed to pick up, but you also forgot where you were going to get what you needed... You get home and go to make a list so you don't forget again but get distracted and forget to make the list.... Sooo the next day when you remember, you feel confident you won't forget this time so you fail to write it down again.... And once again, you forget everything after you leave the house.

And my personal favorite...

You realize that food not in your direct line of sight doesn't really exist until it expires and you need to replace it with new food that will also likely expire before you remember it's there.

You had a great story to share here about realizing you forgot something...but forgot what it was exactly that you realized you forgot.

The sad part is that happens almost every week and I continue to believe I won't forget, continue to forget, realize I forget but still don't put anything in place to catch myself to prevent myself from forgetting. lol

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

when you edit a post because you realize you pressed the wrong reply button.. panicked thinking everyone on this board will think your an idiot because you "blurted" on a thread about peoples examples of why they are ADD..(blurting being one of them).

Was that this reply?? Maaaaybe.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

(happened today)

You have a great idea for a post on this forum but by the time you turn on your computer you totally forget to go to the forum to post it. You remember a few hours later only to get distracted on the way to the computer. Now a few hours later although I am now on the forum I can't remember for the life of me what I wanted to post, but I know it was something good.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you have only had 2 appointments with your sons physical therapist and have been at least 10 minutes late to both!

When your son's ADD doc says you should come in on movie night and watch "ADD & Loving it" and you agree then he looks right at you and says "How are you gonna remember?!?"

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

* You realize the Spanish speaking station is on the radio, and you don't even speak Spanish

* Develop a coping method when you introduce someone whose name you forgot, just introduce the person you remember and act like everything is ok

* Wince at a lowly 15 dollar medical bill going to collections all because everyday you said to yourself, yeah gotta pay that and...whoops

*Has to have all recipes written down and handy (though you've made the dish at least 5 or 6 times already)

*Can sometimes enjoy the fact that although you have watched a certain movie quite a few times over the years, there are parts to it that you have never seen before!

* You unintentionally have two separate cups of coffee floating around in the morning

*Pride yourself on the fact that you are hardly ever late for work - it's only because the whole 3 hours ahead of time you've been rehearsing to yourself what time you have to leave

*You have selective vision- and not notice the shirt on the living room floor until someone tells you its been there for days

*Don't worry, many people forgot what their license plate number is, the model of their car too

*Unopened bills are collected once a month from everywhere in the house and goes into a 5 year bin in the garage

* Has a tendency to spill stuff when pouring

*Although you know better, you will still pronounce herb (spice) as 'Herb' (outdated manly name) on occasion

* You love the Internet because the medium for transmission gives you plenty of time to look things up before you click 'Save' ...(your favorite authors name, spelling of a word, breed of cat you have...)
