    I have terrible short term memory,

    I can't remember how many times I've done this and had to stand there for a minute thinking about why I entered a certain room.

    where I'm going and what I want then brain has clearly got bored with doing what it's supposed to and wants a little bit of fun. So it forgets what the hell I went in there for leaving me standing there looking blank like I've just woken up from a deep sleep. If someone asks...

    I need a sticky note to remind me

    where the sticky note is that reminds me what I'm looking for. Or I just give up and think ok eventually your going to need it again and try harder next time.

    Did it all the time for awhile.

    Ended up walking in circles a lot at work because of this. Turns out it was a side effect of the medications I was given for nerve pain.

    I can have everything I need on my mind,

    and as soon as I walk in the room I just go blank, then when I walk out the room I remember.

    It happens almost everytime I got to the

    kitchen. I walk in, go to the fridge, open it, look around, close it then leave. Go back to my room, lay on my bed and remember I was really thirsty. Usually I get too lazy to get something to drink though so I have to call my dad....On the house phone.

    I poured myself some raspberry lemonade to

    drink, and then I turned in my TV (leaving the lemonade in the kitchen) after a few minutes I realized I was thirsty so I went to the kitchen to get some lemonade. I got the lemonade out of the fridge, got a cup out, and the I saw my cup from a few minutes ago

    Hahaha... Who haven't done this?

    With so much on the mind, it's most likely to happen. How about going into a room to find something that you already got on, like your glasses on your face. Yeah, who does that? Me...

    Some of you know that I have been going on yoga training. It began last August, continued this past week, and would end this coming week. Don't ask me why I did not broadcast it to the whole ep village before and why I'm letting you know now. There are reasons then. There are...

    This has happened to me

    so many times. I'm usually on my phone and that's what distracts me. Other times I go upstairs and mean to go to one room but go to another. It usually happens when I'm not paying attention.

    Then u go back to what I was doing

    before , sit down and then remember. I guess my brain gown into my butt sometimes. Next time it happens I guess I'll try slapping myself on my butt and jog my memory.

    Just a few minutes ago I had forgotten why I had went into my bedroom. I stood in one spot pondering for three minutes until I remembered I was looking for my Wii remote charger.

    Oh boy yeah, I have done that

    so many times. Go to a room and completely forget why I am there. Often have to go back to what I was doing before so I remember what I needed when I went to get it.

    This is a daily experience

    for people with ADD. Sometimes you do it two or three times before you actually get what you came for. It can be very frustrating, especially when you're in a hurry to get to an appointment.
