You know you’re ADD when
… when you own 257 socks — and can’t find a mate for any of them. SusanS29
…when you KNOW you own 257 mate-less socks because you actually counted every last one of them! (then you put them carefully away just in case you find the mates in the wash!) — mgh
You know you’re ADD when . . .
…you READ the “About LOL” post but you can’t remember what it said -
. . . and you’re not sure which season’s LOL’s you’ve read
. . . so you decide you’d BETTER post one of your own in the comments
just so you can track yourself!
… you drive to work and then take the train home. But you never give the car parked in the company lot another thought till you walk up to your house and notice that the car isn’t in the driveway. (That’s a true personal story. I’ve related it to a few other ADD adults and found I wasn’t the only one who did it.) :) JimAMS
…You tell your girlfriend you will meet her at O’hare airport and go together to the ADDA conference and she tells you that she is flying into Indianapolis because that’s where you told her the conference was. (She was able to change the tickets. Phew!) Dan751
…you have a teleclass in five minutes (surely you don’t have to set an alarm just to go to the bathroom!), and your dogs come into the bathroom wagging their tails – and in playing with the dogs you decide that they need a quick walk around the block – and while you’re out you might as well stop at the deli and pick up some toilet paper, since you had to use a paper towel because you keep forgetting to get TP – and to congratulate yourself for remembering the toilet paper you go to get some tastee-delite, and run into a friend you haven’t seen in a while – so you decide to take the dogs back so that the two of you can meet for drinks and talk and then walk back into the house to hear, “We missed you tonite. Are you ok?” blaring out over your answering machine (in a voice you recognize as someone you had talked to in the teleclass IMMEDIATELY preceeding the one you missed – about a joint project that you were going to noodle in the missed class)
oops. Good thing I wasn’t teaching it!

…you are standing in front of the refrigerator, door open, and don’t have a clue as to why Ratatat (Becky Booth)
… when you drive past your exit on the Interstate, turn around (after 5 miles) and then drive past it AGAIN! DeborahWR
….when everything is blurry and your eyes are bloodshot and are gonna pop out of your head , its way past your “normal” bedtime so you try to sleep but there is a wrinkle on the pillow that drives you nuts, so you fluff the pillow and then the alram goes off cause you set it wrong, then your mind wont shut up long enough to go to sleep, so you try reading a book and you can’t concentrate on it and end up reading the same 3 lines for half an hour cause your too tired, so you turn on the idiot box and hear about how to make millions in real estate if you spend $395 right now, so you go back to bed but you still cant sleep cause your overtired, so you sign on AOL, come to the ADD msg board and babble along like a fool for a while in an enormously long run on sentence, till you pass out.

….when you realize every single thing Greg just said was about you, and then you realize how much you LOVE THIS PLACE AND THESE PEOPLE!!! JimAMS
