I found my diagnosis

#1

Post by stever1950 » Sat Jul 27, 2019 11:07 am

I finally know what I have. While reading the S&W forum I found this which is perfect.

AAADD:

"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 Pepsi I'd been drinking .

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

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

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

I put the Pepsi 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 Pepsi sitting on the counter, the flowers don't have enough water, there is still only 1 check in my check 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.

I realize this is a serious problem, And I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail....

Nailed it! :thumbs2:

That sounds like some of my coworkers.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

The third email in is a notice that someone has replied to one of my posts on texaschlforum.com.

I click the link to read the reply and wind up reading all the unread posts on the forum.

When I finally close my browser, there's my email program, but the 356 unread emails will have to wait until tomorrow because it's 2:00 AM now...

If it's like my house, at some point in the evening Dear Sweet Wife will ask why the water outside is running.

Hey thanks for posting this. I was afraid I had something seriously wrong with me, but at least it has been identified. If I could find my address book, I would call my doctor, and schedule an appointment, to get treatment. Hey! That's where I put those new cleaning patches. Be right back got to clean my rifle. Where did I write down my safe combination????
