    Thumbs down Never in my life.....

    Have I ever, ever been teased about my ADD.





    Until today.




    I could not believe it. By ANOTHER ADULT!

    I was filling out some paper work when my mind got the better of me, and I walked away in the middle of it to look at some pamphlets on the wall...(LOL) totally not thinking that this person was waiting for me to finish.

    They said to their co - worker "Maybe shes retarded". I calmly said, that their language sucked, and told them they are extremely politically incorrect, and that I happened to have ADD, and sometimes I lose track of what I'm doing.

    Then the woman looked and me and said "oh shouldn't you be medicated then? or perhaps in a hospital?"


    DUH!

    That makes me so sad.

    I'm sorry you had to go through that. Some people are just ignorant!

    WHAT?? Where was this?
    I cannot imagine someone speaking to me in that manner. Obviously they are incredibly ignorant.

    People who know me, usually know my ADD is on the extreme end of losing concentration. Its not unusual for me to stop mid conversation, and start a new one, or forget completely mid sentence what I was talking about. And yes I have had friends poke fun at it, but not in a mean way. If I say “um“ mid convo, that usually a good sign that I have lost train of thought.

    I also get bored easy, or easily distracted. My body doesn't filter that I am doing something, don't get up and start something else, kwim?

    I never really thought it was overly noticeable, but I guess it is. And it wasn't even important forms I was filling out.

    If I can be institutionalized for ADD than man, sign me up. I will take the 72 hour break while they observe me.

    Funniest part, it was a customer review form.
