When you manage to wake up at 6:30 to be on time for work but you manage to forget your wallet and keys at home... and you manage to lose your 150$ sunglasses while working.

On a side note is there an easy way to know if someone has replied to a post you make or do you have to just remeber to keep checking back in on the thread? I use an iphone dont know if that makes a difference.
Click on "User CP" in the bar at the top of the page. It won't tell you whether
the new post is a response to yours, but you'll know which threads to check and
see if there are any.

You'd think after it happened once I'd remember I need to take my keys as

I ended up making copies of the car keys for cars I drove that weren't mine so I didn't have to depend on either myself to remember my house keys, or the in denial ADDer who owned the vehicles...he couldn't find the keys either most of the time. It did make my key ring larger, but life is easier for me now.

Used to do this ... before they put electronic gizmos in the key itself. Now that's
too expensive. My daughter's spare key went to her boyfriend because they
have to switch cars at times.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

Surely this has come up before but i didn't go through all the pages yet. I like this topic so much, it makes me laugh about myself!

... when you ALWAYS think you have plenty of time, and find 3 hrs turned into 5 minutes and you're still not dressed.
... when you know how much stress this gives you, and still manage to do it over and over and over again.
...when you hate it when people arrive 5 minutes early at your place, because you still planned to do so much in those 5 minutes!

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you pay $9 to see a movie at the theater and when it's over you walk out and have no idea what the title was, characters or plot.

What worse is when you rent the same movie again a month later from Red Box and have no idea.

In a way I think this is a benefit ... because I can enjoy the same movie or tv
show or book several times.

I know! And we are on meds. What would it be like without them?

Probably about the same for me with movies. The only difference is that on meds. I can sit still and daydream without being so restless and bored.

That's what I do too! I love it when people take me to run their errands, I can sit in the car and mindlessly and happily do nothing.

That's one my favorite things to do. Especially, watching people come and go.

...you turn the key in the ignition for the second time, because you forgot that you've already started the engine.

I did that a couple of times in the Buick because it was so quiet running.

Re: You Know You Have ADHD When ...

When you get a couple of miles down the road, then suddenly can't remember if you locked the front door when leaving. So, you turn around, even though you are running a little late, and go all the way back. As you pull up to your home, you soon realize that not only did the front door not get locked, it didn't even get shut - it is WIDE OPEN!
