fasttalkingmom has a spectacular aura aboutfasttalkingmom has a spectacular aura about
ADD women feeling scatterbrained

scatter brained the past few days.....

I can't stand myself..... I'm talking backward, as I call it. Can't seem to understand what people are saying to me and have to say " I'm sorry, what did you say"?
Can't find anything....

losing my temper in a way I haven't in a very long time.....

Not sleeping well.....

My house is just a huge mess and I'm feeling to over whelmed to clean it up....

I'm having trouble sitting still....

This morning while putting on my sneakers, I realized I needed to make coffee,so I walked to the coffee maker with one shoe on !....

I'm thinking it maybe time for me to up the dose on my meds or something ?....

What do you think ?

Paula

Paula: Could be...how long have you been at present dosage of your meds and how long has it been since you've seen the doctor? Wow...getting up to do "something else" with one shoe on...sounds SO familiar! Why can't we sit long enough to put both shoes on darnit without interrupting even THAT small process??

Is anything stressful going on in your life? which may trigger this other stuff? I mean I'm going through major changes in my life right now and I totally relate to the "can't sit still" and "I'm sorry what did you say" and "overwhelmed to clean", etc...

I've been on the some meds and same dose for about 9 months now....

And yes I do have unusually stresses right now... Job change for the summer, for that matter having to even work this summer, I usally don't.... I will be laid off for about 2 weeks before work starts up again... My kids will be out of school next week for the summer....

I never think of stress affecting my ADD...That's interesting to me..

Thanks Joan!
