Thirteen Things about ADD

1. Multitasking becomes a way of life.

2. Focusing on one thing at a time takes a lot of focusing.

3. My boyfriend has to say “are you listening to me?” just about every night.

4. Discovering audio books now enables me to read a book, drink my coffee and flip off idiotic drives all at once.

5. Sorry, got distracted, where was I?

6. It makes a great excuse why you completely forgot to do something or lost something.

7. Not having to go back inside my house several times every morning because I forgot something is a very good start to the day.

8. Having an online life is much easier because I can always edit any mistakes I make when jumping between several different sites at once.

9. Patience is a foreign concept.

10. I’m still wondering if there is a way a can read my magazines that are piling up while I’m at Curves, haven’t figured that out yet.

11. I have 2 work wall calendars, 1 home wall calendar, 2 planners I carry and my work computer calendar just to make sure I don’t forget things…I still do though.

12. My laptop has become my new best friend, as far as multitasking goes. I wish I could use it in the car while I’m in traffic.

13. There are never enough hours in a day but too many questions on these things 😀

    I learn something new everyday, I now know more about ADD. I have to admit a few of these fit me – #2, #3(hubby not boyfriend) and #9.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT. Have a wonderful day. Be Well…

    Wow. I don’t know much about ADD, I think my husband may have it. But really, you sound more like him that you are ABLE to do more things at once, multitask, and sometimes get caught up in the business. I could never keep up with him, in a million years.

    Thanks for visiting my tt!

    My son is ADD. He has decided to do without the medication for now and see where that leads him. A lot of what you mentioned are things he deals with daily. I have had to let go of a lot of worring about it since he is now on his own. I just remind him One day at a time, and take on only what you can handle.

    Okay, now your list makes me wonder if I have a mild case of ADD! I’m always running back into the house for things, and I love to multi-task (which is why I love books on tape/CD, too). And number five made me laugh.

    Very interesting. I blogged about multitasking some time back (not mine, but a magazine article). Seems nobody does any one of the tasks well. We just think we do. Focus. Focus.

    My TT is up.
