I wondered if people might like to share some comedic adventures they have with their adhd life. I found a thread like this when I was first diagnosed and it was the best thing ever.
It was people with adhd telling the crazy funny things their adhd makes them. I was laughing thru most of the night as I read story after story that could of been me in almost every one. I laughed so hard. It was the first time I felt I fit in. I never knew other people had the same issues I did. To laugh about them was the best relief ever.
They can be one line sentences or few paragraphs. Anything goes. Just stay light and for fun. No meanness.
You know you have ADHD when…You start the day off cleaning and are determined to get the whole house clean. You start cleaning your bathroom, find something that needs to go to the kitchen.
You stop cleaning for second, take it to the kitchen. Wow. This kitchen is a mess. Why did I leave that out from last night ? And you start putting away and cleaning up that mess. The bathroom Is half done and now I start the kitchen.
Half way thru the kitchen I don’t have any more clean kitchen towels. I enter start these in the laundry right away. They take time to wash and get them dry. I need them while cleaning. Stop cleaning in kitchen Go to laundry room start putting towels in washer.
Start washer. Wait I have to disk these from the dryer. Oh this garbage is too full I should empty it. Wow the dryer and washer are so dusty. I should wipe these off. Let me take the garbage out.
Oh wait. I should empty the other garbage cans first. Take them all out at once. Ok.
Left bathroom half done. Now left kitchen half done. Started washing clothes. Now I go off to empty all the Garbage’s. They are all over the house you know.
Empty the living room Garbage’s. Dang these tables are a mess. Why did the kids leave their shoes here. I need to move these. The table is so dusty. I need the spray. Ok. Spray them down. Empty the Garbage’s.
But the carpet is bad. I have to vacuum in here. Go get the vacuum. Vacuum carpet. I should be doing the ceiling while I am at this and the edges. Ok. Did that but since I she the vacuum out I should vacuum the whole downstairs.
Go to next room to vacuum. Now living room
Is half cleaned. Garbage’s bags are collecting in pile to go outside. Kitchen is half done. Bathroom is half done. Washing machine has finished. I completely forgot about it.
This goes on and on all day. Until I get to nighttime. I have every room started. Each room is half done. Lights on all over the house. My husband is about to come home and nothin so finished . It seems worse than before I started even. Now I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to finish all the different things I started thru the day. Which never really gets completely done correctly.
Finally I have fisnihed as much as can be. Time to go to bed.
Wake up in the morning and doing some stuff in the kitchen. No clean towels. What. I thought I did that yesterday. Yeah. The load is still in the washer. Now it smells bad. I have to rewash You know there has been times where I rewash a load of laundry almost every day of the week intending to dry it once it’s done. But never remember it finishes. And keep rewashing it every day in hopes to finish it.
