Reply to buickman1: I can relate to everything you said but I am an 81 y/o female and have only realized 2 years ago that I have ADD. People don’t believe it when I tell them I have ADD ’cause I’ve been living a lie all my life. The only books I can read are mysteries because I can pay attention to the plot. In school I did poorly in social stdies and history cause they were very boring to me and I guess I could not focus.
Thanks for your enlightening post.April 3, 2018 at 11:12 am in reply to: Little patience with other drivers…other shoppers, etc. #80750taniabiddleParticipant
Eye opening!! I did not realize I had ADD until I was almost 80 y/o. I’ve have always needed to pass cars when driving and get plenty of inner road rage. I’ve left grocery shopping carts ’cause I could not stand to wait any longer. I never realized it was ADD. Right now I’m in a retirement community and trying to learn a game called rummy cube.
I’m very slow at playing right now. I’ve gotten so inpatient that I decided that I’d better just stop trying to learn the game. I always wondered why I Hated to play board games as a child. A lot of my behavior and emotions that I had growing up are now making sense to me.
I am looking for some professional help but can’t seem to find it; but I will keep trying. I don’t know how to change my brain!!
