My adhd moment or whatever you want to call it.

Before I get to my real post for the day down below, I had to tell everyone what happened to me yesterday. Many times people ask me about ADHD, never actually being able to understand it. When I say forgetfulness, this isn't actually what it is, more like a missing moment in time, or what one might call a "brain fart". Yesterday I was standing in my kitchen washing dishes about 9 am when I realized I had a bad taste in my mouth. Then I thought Oh ya, I forgot to swallow my pill. I actually put the pill in my mouth about 4 minutes before. That is what it is actually like. You can forget something right in the middle of actually doing it. Like swallowing.

How awful...pills can taste so yucky! I'm pretty forgetful, too. My forgetfullness is more like going into a room for something and having absolutely no idea why I am there. Usually when I go back to where I came from I'll remember...such a hassle!

I'm totally with you on the ADD (I'm not hyperactive - I can be such a lethargic slug) and know exactly what you're talking about. It really is a bummer!
