Absent Minded Me

Hi all y'all absent minded folks,

 I am 22 years old now and I have been absent minded as far back as i can remember. I don't have any medical conditions or problems and I am good at school and with people. From an early age  I remember my mum asking me to get her something from inside our house and getting in there not remembering why i was in there or never finding it even it. My parents didn't like it in the begining coz they thought i was not paying attention when they talked to me but later they realized i could't help it and they got used to it. I also drift off in the middle of conversations with people even my best friends( does't matter how interested I am in the conversation). Because of this I had trouble with few people but not too much. I also lose lose track of my own thoughts; some times I would be talking and i just forget what I was saying and just keep repeating few words. Also I am always losing things; cellphones, keys, IDs etc ( I don't carry an umbrella coz I leave it some where). It helps to keep a routine ( eg puting  things in a certain place all the time) and also keep a list of things to do and buy.  It is not too bad for me but some times it is annoying lol.

I have the same problem. It's the worst in school because teachers never believe the excuse “ I forgot it at home" when I genuinely did forget it.
