Roz on ADD

Minutes from the ADD Support Group

Either Ms. Chast has ADD herself, or she knows somebody very well who does.


I saw this in this week’s New Yorker. The text goes like this:

1. Call to order.
2. Speaker introducted. Didn’t catch name.
3. Talk talk talk. Blah blah blah. Sooooo BORING!
4. Speaker looks like Cousin Jeremy.
5. Note to self: YOU OWE JEREMY AN EMAIL.
6. God, I never answered Miriam’s email either.
7. No *way* I’m cooking dinner tonight. We’ll order something.
8. Everybody left. Why am I still sitting here?

    Ahhh! So, this is how ADD feels. I guess I have ADD then.

    I thought that I just was too smart for those meetings or talks or whatever, and my brain was going to fast to be able to wait for the inevitable folding of events that it was clear after the first 30 seconds. Reality is so boring and predictable at times (good thing that we have Hollywood movies)/

    But I realize now that it was just an attention deficit disorder. Crap.

    This is hilarious. Speaking as someone with ADHD I can tell you that this is totally accurate.

    Thank God for Stratera.
