Yup, since I bought a computer I’ve found myself lost in hyperspace a lot……….first it was games: diamond solitaire, freecell…..it got so bad I had to call a techkie to remove games from computer. Now if I can just figure out a way to remove YouTube and Google Books.
And oh yes, NetFlix was a mistake. I watched every single episode of Medium over three days, and I really didn’t like the show that much
By the way, I’ve joined TotallyAdd this morning, and I’ve been browsing the site for five hours. HmmmmREPORT ABUSEJune 6, 2011 at 3:24 am in reply to: HELP! Is age effecting my ADHD symptoms or am I just worn out from all the fun? #98788

Hey! We must share the same brain…….my life experiences are just like yours.
I was diagnosed two years ago, and have been on Metadate. I’m now 71. Yes, the medication gave clarity and focus, not to mention contentment, to my life.
But here’s the bad news: my tendency to lose things, ignore things, File in Piles, forget to pay bills……gets worse the older I get. Medication helps but it can’t undo years of counterproductive coping strategies.
The point of this story is that the habits of a lifetime are so.o.o.o. difficult to break. I still cannot interrupt what I want to do……e.g., I want to carry my coffee to my office. However, I make a mess making coffee, and then spill it on the way to my office. Do I stop to clean up the mess? No, cause I’ll lose m;y train of thought. This type of thing happens many times a day, and by evening my house is a disaster zone. I still procrastinate, don’t leave my keys and glasses in the place I’m supposed to, constantly lose pieces of paper and mail that I need right now. And on and on, etc., etc. It helps to know why I do this, but learning new strategies is like an old dog learning new tricks. And yes, Rey, I have tinnitus too.REPORT ABUSE
