I have recently been diagnosed with A. A. A. D. D.

(Advanced Absentminded Attention Deficit Disorder)

This is how it goes:

I decide to wash the car; I start toward the garage

and notice the mail on the table. OK, I'm going to

wash the car, but first I'm going to go through the

mail. I lay the car keys down on the desk, discard

the junk mail, and notice the trash can is full.

OK, I'll just put the bills on my desk and take the

trash can out, but since I'm going to be near the

mailbox anyway, I'll pay these few bills first. Now,

where is my checkbook? Oops, there's only one check

left. My extra checks are in my desk.

Oh, there's the coke I was drinking. I'm going to

look for those checks. But first I have to put my

coke further away from the computer, or maybe I'll pop

it into the fridge to keep it cold for a while. I

head towards the kitchen and my flowers catch my eye;

they need some water.

I set the coke on the counter, and uh oh. There are

my glasses. I was looking for them all morning. I'd

better put them away first. I fill a container with

water and head for the flower pots. Uh oh.....someone

left the TV remote in the kitchen. We'll never think

to look in the kitchen tonight when we want to watch

television, so I'd better put it back in the family

room where it belongs.

I splash some water into the pots and onto the

floor, I throw the remote onto a soft cushion on the

sofa and I head back down the hall trying to figure

out what it was I was going to do?

End of the Day:

The car isn't washed, the bills are unpaid, the coke

is sitting on the kitchen counter, the flowers are

half-watered, the checkbook still only has one check

in it and I can't seem to find my car keys. When I

try to figure out how come nothing got done today, I'm

baffled because I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY LONG!!!!!

I realize this is a serious condition and I'll get

help, but first I think I'll check my

email................

Please send this to everyone you know because I DON'T

REMEMBER TO WHOM I'VE SENT THIS!!!!!!

As a psychiatric nurse, I see you are suffering from advanced Brain Fogs. This usually occurs to people over 40, and may also be referred to as "Brain Farts" by the general public.

But the correct terminology is cerebral flatulence!

I knew this condition was real! I seem to have a chronic form since giving up cigarettes this week.
