ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)

A psychologist diagnosed me as ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) about ten years ago.  At the time, I told her that I already knew I was ADD, but she insisted I take some test.  I don’t remember what kind of test ‘cause I’m ADD and forgetful.  There was no ADD when I was a boy.  I guess it’s a new phenomenon of our times.  I caught it from some other child.  Anyway, about twenty years ago I read an article about ADD.  When I read that piece, I was reading about me!  The story went on to tell ADD people what they could do to cope with their affliction.  Make a list.  Check your list.  Don’t lose your list!  LIST?  I figured that out years ago!  If I hadn’t, I would never have survived to this day.  I live with my lists.  There’s a lot of medication out there for us ADD’s, but it’s not for me.  I know children that have been helped by medication, but I truly believe if those meds had been around when I was growing up, the doctors might have Rx’d all the creativity out of me!  Maybe I would have done better but I like the way things have turned out so far.

I think I have a lunch appointment.  Am I playing golf tomorrow?  Where the hell is my list?
