I heard by more than one person last week that I’m “a little mean.” Therefore, I thought I’d soften my approach with an exciting new topic: Adult ADD/ADHD. 🙂 I was diagnosed with this many years ago (shock)…. I can explain it all; however. Personally, I think the label is over-used. Let’s check out the so-called symptoms:
Short Attention Span: It’s just that I don’t care what you are saying but I really like your green shirt.
Distractibility: Thought it might inspire you if I start eating walnuts, texting and coloring tulips while you are saying whatever.
Restlessness: The pitch of your voice makes me uneasy. Just lip the words.
Trouble following proper procedures: I don’t believe in following other’s procedures so not sure why this is a sign of ADD.
Avoids Group Activities: I attended the company Christmas party.
Verbally Abusive to Others: I only attack you when you screw up but I always apologize!
Zoning Out: It’s called meditation and is supposed to fade facial lines.
Impulsive: The bigger issue is YOU and your “routine.” That’s disturbing.
Chronic Problems with Self Esteem: You do like me, right? I mean…you are reading my blog but why didn’t you make a comment or “like” on FB?
Mind goes blank: What?
Short Fuse: You say you need clarification on my email? That pisses me off.
Tendency toward addictions: One out of twelve isn’t bad.
You should seek the advice of a trained idiot if you have any of the above symptoms.
