Subject: I THINK I HAVE ALTZHEIMER'S... IS IT REALLY .... ADD?

:roll:
Can anybody help? I forget EVERYTHING!!! Yes, i change subjects often, loose things, forget to pay bills (THANK GOD FOR ONLINE E BILL PAYMENT) I have been promoted to a dream job and can't remember to turn in my BONUS LOG!!! You would think i could remember that, right?

Please give me some pointers.. i am currently on ritalin and because of my irradic moods,,, resperdol too!! Now, i took in a new diagnoses to my doc... disorganized schizophenia!!! She says many people with ADD feel like that.. is this true?

I am feeling unusually out of sorts due to a promotion in which i have no structure and no time frame. unlike before, pretty repetitious in the past. Let me know if i am crazy...

Thanks,
Sharon

at least you HAVE A JOB! $hit, I haven't had a full time GOOD job in over 2 years! now that SUCKS! you are being promoted!? well, I would say you're doing something right! my advice is to by a blackberry and punch in everything you need to remember and keep it with you at all times..I have ADD/LD and forget things a lot(like everyone who has ADD)...you're not alone...

I got a PDA and that has helped alot, but yes we're all forgetful and it's very frustrating!!! Do you have an assistant? If so let them know your weak areas so they know how to help, and what to remind you of.

LOL...PLease forgive me..I'm not laughing at you..but w/you as I feel like that alot too!!!! Without a schedule or routine..I'm a fish out of water...Now the DH on the other hand..he's just "frustrating" in general...I've tried everything to help him. OK..got a agenda book..hmmm...forgets the agenda book!!!

I got 2 girls with SI disorder and APD...a 14yro that has "brain farts"...and the DH has the same..but more of "Brain Prolapses"...LOL...I'm about nut half the time trying to make sure everyone is doing what they need to be when they want to be.

Needless to say...went back to work about 6mon ago FT..I left them all to thier own devices.(Except the 11 and 5yro) Alot of "forgotten" things..let me tell ya. I told them to take care of it..NOT MY PROBLEM!!!

Altzheimers is alittle more then just forgetting things...at least from my experience. Although forgetting things is one of the symptoms of many.
