KNOW THE SYMPTOMS


Recently; I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests:


I decide to water my garden.


As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.


As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier.


I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.


I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full.


So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.


But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.


I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only one check left.


My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke I'd been drinking.


I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.


The Coke is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.


As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need water.


I put the Coke on the counter and discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.


I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.


I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.


I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.


I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.


So, I set the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.


Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.


At the end of the day:


the car isn't washed,


the bills aren't paid,


there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter,


the flowers don't have enough water,


there is still only 1 check in my ch
eck book,


I can't find the remote,


I can't find my glasses,


and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.


Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day, and I'm really tired.
