Okay, so for years I've said, "I don't have ADD, but I've really benefitted from some of the organizational tools suggested for folks who do." Or..."I don't have ADD, but I do have some of the symptoms."
At some point, let's admit: susansinclair just might have AD/HD. I'm gonna look into testing/diagnosis in the fall. In the meantime, I am, being an academic type, reading about it. And thinking, "Hey, maybe my depression stuff doesn't cause these add-like patterns--maybe it's the other way around?" Or, "What do you mean ADD stuff may affect how I am in relationships?!"
What? Oh, never mind. Thought I heard something in the living room.
Wait, just gotta check on something in the kitchen.
Where were we, again?
