You know you’re ADD when ...

Summer 96

…you publish an online newsletter and the June issue comes out on July 14th!!! – MGHCoach

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 spend more time looking for your car in the parking lot than you did buying groceries for a family of seven Debeepower

…you put a potato in the oven 3 hrs ago and forgot about it until the smoke detector went off. (Yikes!!!!) ImWebby

…you stop at a UPS drop box to drop off a package and leave the car running with the keys locked in it….in gear

….in front of a busy intersection
….with the only thing to stop it being the First of America Bank signpost across the street.

And in the process of scrambling frantically to find your extra key in your wallet, you drop the wallet in the middle of the intersection and your credit cards go *everywhere* (Gee.. I wonder who would do such a thing…..?)

And only after you get back into the (slightly dented) car do you realize that you didn’t stick the UPS shipping label on the package when you dropped it into the drop-slot! ADHD in MI

…your Mom laughs at you when you say your ADD son is DRIVING YOU CRAZY! SuzaneW

…at one of the [online live] chats you IM yourself.. (ed. note: IM is short for Instant Message, a way for participants in a chat room to communicate with each other privately, with the rest of the room unaware and uninterrupted.) McckyMac (Linda M)
