> AAADD - KNOW THE SYMPTOMS . . . PLEASE READ!
>
> Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder. Somehow I feel better, even though I have it!!
> 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 rubbish bin under the table, and notice that the bin is full.
>
> So, I decide to 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 mailbox when I take out the rubbish anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.
>
> I take my cheque book off the table, and see that there is only one cheque left.
>
> My extra cheques are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the cup of coffee I'd been drinking.
>
> I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push the coffee aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.
>
> The coffee is getting cold, and I decide to make another cup.
>
> As I head toward the kitchen with the cold coffee, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye - they need water.
>
> I put the coffee 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 had 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 cold cup of coffee sitting on the counter The flowers don't have enough water, There is still only 1 cheque in my cheque 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 damn 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 . . .
>
> Do me a favour.
> Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember who the heck I've sent it to.
>
> Don't laugh - if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!
