Hello again. I have a question but first here is the situation. My wife is bi-polar type 2. She takes meds for this but we have both noticed that she gets side tracked very easily. She can be on her way to do something and then BAM! she is doing something else and forgets all about what she was going to do. We don't know if this is caused by the bi-polar or not but we just want some insite on what everyone else thinks. Thanks for everyones help that responds to this.

Bipolar disorder really doesn't sidetrack people as far as I know. She could have ADD or she could have a more serious mental disorder that was diagnosed as bipolar at the time. I would check with your doctor if he didn't already know. This could be a precursor to Alzheimer's, by the way. Not a good thing to think about, but it could happen, unfortunatly.
