Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

This week, rather than an article I wanted to show you a video.

The title is Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder, however it gives an insight into what life is like when you have ADHD regardless of your age. After you have watched it, send it some of the closest people in your life so they can get an understanding of what it’s like to have Adult ADHD.

 

Living with ADD can be challenging and no one wants to use having ADHD as an excuse. However, when your loved ones get even a glimpse of how your mind works, it helps them to understand why you operate the way you do. They can appreciate that you are trying hard, even if you don’t produce the results they hoped for. That understanding goes a long way in every relationship, whether life partner, best friend or family member or co-worker. 

Remember too, there are lots of ways to help minimize your unwanted aspects of ADHD. Untapped Brilliance, How to Reach your full potential is a great place to start.

    This is the story of my days for most of my life. It has resulted in my employers losing confidence in my ability to handle my responsibilities and my family becoming frustrated with my scattered brain. Most people will think that this is just normal in today’s hectic life. But it’s not normal to feel like an under-achiever and a loser most of the day because you start 11 “all important tasks” before noon. I live in sunny Santa Monica where there is always a reason to go out. Sometimes, I wish I lived in chilly Canada where I had reason to stay in and get my to do list done. Even though this video was a bit whimsical and very well done, I found it to be difficult to watch. The pain of regret caused by the simplest of goals unfinished, haunts me. It’s how I feel each night when I lay my head on my pillow determined that tomorrow is a new day. Darn, it’s 3:30p already? Gotta get the taxes done… Where’s the remote again?

    This is exactly what happens to me. It makes me feel so incredibly busy yet realize how unproductive I was. The feeling of a failure comes strolling along as a result. Not very fun.

  3. Yeah I absolutely identify with this. Never even thought about it until my late 20s.

      It can be scary how fast the day goes and how little you really get done can’t it!

        I can’t believe how totally uncanny this video is! Wow! My ADD gets progressively worse as I age. As I watched the video, I thought “You sweet little thing, I know exactly how you feel.” And it’s nice to read comments from others going through what I go through. I”m not alone. I am 65 yrs old and still have awful dreams about not finishing homework 55 yrs ago. It’s constant!
