AAADD syndrome

Anyone else have this problem?

I have recently been diagnosed with AAADD – Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is how it goes…..

Its my weekend and I decide to organize myself. I need to tidy up a lot. I decide to start with my Car. It needs a washing. So I decide to wash the car. I walk towards the garage. Then I reaslise I need to pick up the keys, to clean the interior of the car. I go back and remember I kept the car keys on the working table.

I go near the table and notice there are lots of mails that I have to open and read. I decide, I will wash the car, but first, let me clear those mails. I pick up the mails, I decide to first sort out the junk mails. If I clear them then I can go thru only those that are relevant.

I pick up the junk and throw them to the wastepaper basket. As I do I notice the trash is full. It needs to be cleared. I decide to see the mails but before I should clear the trash. I pick the trash can walk and I notice there are bills to be paid, kept on the dining table. Oh, its better I pay these. I will empty the trash, but before that, let me first write out checks for those bills. I keep the basket down, pick up the bills.

Let me go to the working table to write the checks.

Yes, Now where is the check book?

Oops… there’s only one check left. Where did I put the extra checks?

Oh, there’s my empty plastic cup from last night on my desk.

I’m going to look for those checks…BUT FIRST I need to put the cup back in the kitchen.

I head for the kitchen, look out the window, notice the flowers need a drink of water, I put the cup on the counter and there’s my extra pair of glasses on the kitchen counter.

What are they doing here? I’ll just put them away…BUT FIRST need to water those plants.

I head for the door and…

Aaaagh! Someone left the TV remote in the wrong spot.

Okay, I’ll put the remote away and water the plants…

BUT FIRST I need to find those checks.

END OF DAY: car not washed, bills still unpaid, cup still in the sink, check book still has only one check left, lost my car keys; and, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I’m baffled because…I KNOW I WAS BUSY ALL DAY!

I realize this condition is serious… I’d get help…BUT FIRST… I think I’ll check my e-mail, I have to clear that inbox.

Realised my condition?

Do you have this syndrome?

Then can you make an appointment with the doctor for both of us?

Wait, first, let us find a doctor. Google? Ah, the connection is fast, let me check the bank account to see the credits and debits….
