Oooh….I hope you realized it was the candle before you took a drink. 😯

I do that kind of thing all the time too. If I’m sitting with someone I will pick up their drink instead of mine. And I will try to drink out of a bottle without taking the cap off.

And if I had a nickel for every great idea I forgot just as I was about to write it down….I’d have at least $2 by now. Maybe even $4.

It does help to be able to read about the experiences of others. It’s difficult to have perspective when you have nothing for comparison. And it’s easy to get trapped in your own head.

I will be going for assessment soon. My doctor agreed to refer me today.  I’m a little nervous. There is still a part of me that doesn’t believe the whole thing, that thinks it’s just an excuse. Or that there is another cause, that it’s not really ADD.  Or that I will screw it up and not get the right result because I have trouble remembering things and expressing myself well. So it’s good to be able to get ideas from others, to be able to read these examples and say “oh yeah, I do that.”
