This morning I was sitting at the dining table catching up with some study, I took a pause to look out the window, saw my dahlia now needing to be dug up and stored for the winter. I got that Dahlia at the sell off at the Hampton Court flower show this year, next year I want to go to the Chelsea flower show, So does my mum, we are spending boxing day at my mums house, must think about what I am going to wear, soon be Christmas must make sure we have enough gas in the bottle for the BBQ, thats our BBQ out in the garden, oh look there is my Dahlia, ready to pull up before the frosts get it, I bought it in the sell off at the Hampton Court flower show this year..........................................................................

So is that A.D.D? or just mind numbingly bored from reading about formats, standardisation.................................................................... I will complete this course!

Was trying to write a comment then remembered the bath was running, went to have a bath then thought of this which someone forwarded to me- thought you might appreciate it today!
For those of you that don't get this, you will, your day is coming . . ..

Recently, I was diagnosed with : A.A.A.D.D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder
This is how it manifests:

I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the table that I collected from the letter box earlier. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the rubbish bin under the table, and notice that it 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 post-box 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 1 cheque left. My extra cheques are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke I'd 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. The Coke is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the fridge to keep it cold. As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the worktop catches my eye - they need water. I put the Coke on the worktop and 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 worktop, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote control. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realise that tonight when we watch TV, I'll be looking for the remote control, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the front room where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers. I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So, I set the remote control back 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 do.
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 worktop
- the flowers don't have enough water
- there is still only 1 cheque in my cheque book
- I can't find the remote control
- 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, and I'm really tired. I realise this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail. Do me a favour. Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember who the hell I've sent it to.

Don't laugh - if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!
