Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I have recently been diagnosed
AAADD. Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
And this is how it goes...
I decide to wash the car, start down the hall and notice the newspaper
on the table.
OK, I'm going to wash the car...
I'm going to read the newspaper. After that, I notice the mail on the
OK, I'll just put the newspaper in the recycle stack...
I'll look through the pile of mail and see if there are any bills to be
Yes, Now where is the checkbook?
Oops...there's the empty glass from yesterday on the coffee table.
I'm going to look for that checkbook...
I need to put the glass in the sink.
I head for the kitchen, look out the window, notice my poor flowers
need a drink of water. I put the glass in the sink and there's the
remote for the TV on the kitchen counter. Hey what's it doing there?
I'll just put it away...
I need to water those plants. I head for the door and... Aaaagh',
stepped on the dog. Dog needs to be fed. Okay,
I'll put the remote away and water the plants...
I need to feed the dog
END OF DAY:
Car not washed, newspapers are still on the floor, glass is still in the
sink, bills are not paid, checkbook is still lost, and the dog ate the
remote control...And, when I try to figure out how come nothing got done
today, I'm baffled because...
I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY.
I realize this condition is serious...
I'll get help...
I think I'll check my e-mail.
Very Busy. Talk to you later.
