Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

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 & 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 cheque book off the table & 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 can of Pepsi I’d been drinking.

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

The Pepsi is getting warm & 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 & 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 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 day & I’m really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem & I’ll try to get some help for it, but first I’ll check my e-mail…

what are Generic medicines

V.V.IMP message from central government. New step again.
This is definitely going to save u money..

Dear All,

This is to inform you that medicines are prescribed (by doctors) by brand name & not by the generics (Ingredients). Hence we end up paying more money for the same medicine.

Follow these few steps to know more & start saving on your medical bills.

1. Simply goto www.Manddo.com (Medicines and Doctors online) goto medicines secton

2. Search the medicine name

3. Type the medicine name which you are using (e. g. Lyrica 75mg (Pfizer company)

4. It will show u medicine company, prices and Ingredients

5. Now main point CLICK ON ‘SUBSTITUTE’

6. Don’t be surprised to see that same drug is available at very low cost also. And that to by other reputed manufacturer. e. g. Lyrica by pfizer is for Rs. 768.56 for 14 tab (54.89 per tab). Whereas same drug by Cipla (Prebaxe) is available ONLY @ Rs. 59.00 for 10 tab (5.9 per tab)

 

There was a big lobby by Pharma companies to stop generic medicines. But court kept the interest of common man and the medical need.

“Kindness Costs Nothing” – please share it with your groups

  • White Rice : This is most commonly used type of rice in all places. This is also called as milled rice or polished rice. When the hull and bran layers of the grain is removed then we can say it is polished rice.
  • Brown Rice : When only hull layer is removed and heeps the bran layer we can call it as brown rice. It is very healthy when compared with polished rice since it keeps all the good qualities of bran layer.
  • Red Rice : This type of rice also maintains its bran layer which gives the reddish color to it.

  • Brown Rice : When we remove the top layer of rice grain i.e. hull layer then we can call it as Brown rice this can be cookedd and consumed but takes more cooking because of its thick bran layer.
