Hi Linda,

My husband self-diagnosed himself with ADD a number of years ago. He was sure I had it too, I was pretty resistent to the idea but eventually realized it was an issue and we started investigating it. He still makes that comment, but I counter with the fact that it could be a result of severe sleep deprivation (recently diagnosed with narcolepsy – treatment similar to ADHD, probably still have ADHD but it’s down the list). Mice whose sleep was interrupted (so they never got into deeper states of sleep where memory is consolidated) during studies couldn’t remember things they normally wouldn’t forget. It’s one possibility.

LOL, bill, that is a dangerous thought!
