I.Dup. Posted July 5, 2012 Share Posted July 5, 2012 I am pretty sure I have ADD, although maybe this is just common for every woman? I do have some friends who don't seem like this at all, though. I asked about this on a large family board I am on and someone chimed in "well we are all like that" so I thought I'd ask here for a broader range of opinions. :001_smile: I will go to do a task, say taking out the trash, and on the way I will be distracted by 20 other things. 15 minutes later I will notice the trash can and remember that I was supposed to be taking out the trash. I cannot sit for a movie. I would much rather watch something with short clips. My dh just put the connection together that one reason I like watching funny clips on Youtube or a show like America's Funniest Videos is because it moves at a faster pace. I spend way too much time online and I think it is for this reason. Being online is like a rest for my brain, I can move as fast as my brain requires. Trying to do a task in my actual life takes a lot more brainpower and is usually very frustrating (you should have seen me yesterday with all of my school planning supplies, it was a chaotic mess, lol) These are just a few examples. They may not sound like a very big deal, but they have caused a lot of tension in our marriage, especially me getting distracted so easily. My dd is like this also, and my mom is even more severe than I am. She simply cannot sit down for any length of time at all and doing the most simple task can get extremely complicated and difficult for her (she is not online at all and I think she makes up for that by being even more flighty in actual life because her brain never gets a "rest" :lol: ) Although none of us has ever gone in for a diagnosis. So is every woman like this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
