“I can’t find it.” Living with ADHD
My wife asked me to bring her some pistachios from the cupboard. I was happy to do so. But I couldn’t find them. I looked all through the cupboard. I was pretty sure they were in there, but I could not find them. Finally, I realized that they were in my right hand. I had moved the bag of pistachios out of the way so that I could look for the pistachios.
Quote O the Day:
“I’m very good at looking for things; I’m just not good at finding them.”

I had three very good highly relevant images to put in here. They have vanished. Maybe the demon in the computer ate them?

This reminds me of the time I was in a frenzy looking for my cell phone. I had gotten home from work and wanted to take a shower and go to bed, but I wanted to locate my cell phone first. Where could it be? (this was before I had a smartwatch that helps me locate it) I was getting frustrated as I was sure I had been browsing the web on it while on the bus on my way home, so it had to be there. As so often in these situations, the background music was becoming more aggravating so I decided to shut it off to help my mind calm down while I looked.
My cell phone was already in the bathroom playing music for me to jump into the shower with music playing. Imagine how I felt :p
you really get it! This is what I’m talking bout
as always, i appreciate our comments
