Adult ADHD

A: apparently

D: daily brain function

H: has

D: diminished


I am hoping there is a pill for this. I am sure there is.


I'm sure many of us have been looking for our sunglasses and they are right on our head, as I did yesterday. On the brink of becoming a raving lunatic because I didn't know where the heck they were.

And just a few days ago, I was frantically looking for my watch and my wedding rings, which I always conveniently slide on the band of my watch to keep it all together. Just found those last night - well, Bill found them, actually.



Well, here's the story to beat all stories.



Today I was getting ready to go grocery shopping. I had loaded Garrin in the car which was running in the garage because it's like 150 degrees here. So before heading out I did my usual check:



Water bottle? ('cause it's like 150 degrees here) - check

Grocery list? - check

Used the potty (Garrin)? - check

Used the potty (Gini)? - check

Cell phone?

uhh, cell phone?



Nope - no cell phone.



So I run inside, quick.

Dial my number, quick.

And then remember REAL QUICK that my phone is on vibrate.

Shit.



Good thing there wasn't anyone watching me, because I was flipping out. Literally.
Flipping over couch cushions, toys, book, magazines, my laptop. I could hear vibrating. I just couldn't figure out from where in the family room. So I proceeded to call my cell about 10 times. Then I think the vibrating just stopped.


So I ran out to the garage to rescue get Garrin out of the asphyxiating carbon monoxide running truck and brought him in, so I could carry on, looking for my cell phone.


HEAVEN FORBID I GO TO THE STORE WITHOUT MY PHONE.


You know, maybe the Pope might call. Or George Michael. Or Michael Phelps.


or Bill.


Ohhhh, long story longer.

I just thought, I will run upstairs and look even though "why would I bring my cell phone upstairs???".


There on the vanity (where my watch and rings were) was my cellphone. Directly above the family room that I was tearing apart, blinking, blinking, blinking

with 10 missed calls.

I'm pretty sure they call that Mommy brain. I'm impressed that it's taken this long for you to get it - you rock! I've got it already, and it's only been 7 months.

Remember those t-shirts they used to have that said "I've got C.R.S."...as in Can't Remember Sh*t? Yeah, now it makes sense. I need to get me one of those t-shirts.

Remember the last time you "lost" your rings? That poor bug guy.
