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…
