  • A.A.A.D.D

    Recently, I was diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention
    Deficit Disorder.

    This is how it manifests:
    I decide to wash my car. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there
    is mail on the hall table. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the
    car. I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the bin
    under the table, and notice that the bin is full. So, I decide to put
    the bills back on the table and take out the rubbish first.

    But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the
    rubbish anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my cheque book off the
    table, and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my
    desk in the study, so I go to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I
    had been drinking. I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push
    the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. I see that the
    Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to
    keep it cold.

    As I head toward the kitchen with the coke a vase of flowers on the counter
    catches my eye--they need to be watered. I set the Coke down on the counter,
    and I 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 I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen

    I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will 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
    splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on the floor. So, I
    set the remote back down 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

    At the end of the day: the car isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there
    is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered,
    there is still only one check in my checkbook, 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 long, and I'm really tired. I realize this
    is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll
    check my e-mail.
    Aim high and consider yourself worthy of great things
