Recently, I was diagnosed with 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 the postman had delivered earlier.


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


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


So, I put the bills back on the table and take out the rubbish first.


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


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


My new chequebook is in my desk in the computer room, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the half empty glass of orange squash I'd been drinking.


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


The squash is getting warm, so I decide to put it in the fridge to keep it cold.


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


I put the glass of squash on the shelf 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 down on the worktop, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote that someone left on the kitchen table.


I realize that tonight when we go to watch telly, 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 living room 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 glass of orange squash sitting on the hall shelf

the flowers don't have enough water,

there is still only 1 cheque in my chequebook,

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.

Your not anywhere near those nuclear subs are you Conniff :eek:


Seriously, I am getting like that myself. I always start a job, then find something more important to do instead. I thought I needed to take more water with it, but it sounds like the AAADD you described.
