Forgetting the Wife (Scenario 1)
August 14, 2015 2:14am CST
The wife shouted "it's time, I am going to have the baby". As the usual drill and practiced, they exactly know what to do. take the maternity bag (containing the baby's and mother's stuff), lock the house, get the key of the car and go to hospital as fast as they both can (but safely). Exactly what happened except one thing, the pregnant wife who's water bag broke was still in the house. Ahhh yeah the husband hurriedly leave the house in a panic mode and forgetting about the wife who walks very slowly because of heavy and big belly. This is one of the signs of Adult with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. This was a true to life experience of my friend, as her husband was diagnosed with ADHD. That's why they planned every thing ahead. do you think you are an adult with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder?

On the surface, it appears that the husband was absolutely careless, least attentive and may be lost in his own world, when he would have committed this blunder. However, it sometimes so happen that people start taking things for granted and the husband would have assumed in his mind that his wife had already seated in the car and oblivious of the fact that she was physically not in the car, he might have drove away. I am not a victim of 'Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder'. . However, sometimes I also forget what my wife tells me.

It was call of his in ability to focus, his adrenalin rushed and just forget the most important of all his wife and soon to come baby. It is a manifestation that some adults with ADHD though they function normally, they still have these kinds of mistakes. But the baby and wife are both fine, Good to know that you have no focus issue. Lol. Except to whatever your wife tells you

well it really happened, Adults with ADHD really are forgetful and "jumpy" people. They function well when they reach adulthood (can control themselves already) but still some traits are manifesting, such as habitual tardiness and so on.. sorry late reply I was quite busy these days.

if they are forgetful, messy notebook (keeps on erasing), they can't stop talking .. these are a few red flags of this disorder, although I can't really say a big YES, however you can always consult a developmental pediatrician for this matter.

@Mavic123456 That's a funny story but not to the wife, I'm sure. Although, in retrospect, she may see the humor in it, considering that there was no harm done. I don't think I have ADHD because writing and researching calls for much concentration. I'm not easily distracted and where I live there's little to distract me. It's very quiet here. But at one time I worked with someone who said she had just been diagnosed with Adult ADHD. Previous to being diagnosed she had very bad work habits. After being diagnosed she got worse. She seemed to look at it as a reason to be as incompetent as possible.

hahaha yeah Adult with ADHD can really function well why not but there are so many problems, like perennial absenteeism or tardiness (common). unfocused to job although they are also best on multitasking in the contrary. i am glad that you have no ADHD ... yeah those tasks require a lot of concentration.. good for you. 5 claps
