Which of these ADHD symptoms call out to you until something happens across the hall and your attention is now…ah jeez.
I got…hold on…1,3,4,7,12,13,14. Hell, most of those problems are caused by my default young-working-person anxiety that comes standard with a college education.
Also, I haven’t had a cigarette in over a week, thank you very much; my stomach hurts and I can’t smoke until it heals. So there: My ADHD is cured.
