"ADHD Warning Signs" (Warning, you say?)
http://health.msn.com/centers/adhd/articlepage.aspx?cp-...

Listen Up

The inattentive ADHD adult is pretty much a disorganized person. She often gets bored and easily distracted, losing herself in daydreams. With little attention to detail, she can make careless mistakes. All of which leads to an inability to focus and follow instructions. Conversely, this person can focus too much on tasks of interest and can even underestimate the time needed to complete these tasks. This can fuel procrastination and lateness. Don't be too put off as the inattentive ADHD adult can appear aloof or even arrogant.

On the Go

The hyperactive suffers restlessness, even fidgety hands and feet. It's not surprising to find this person squirming in general. He also is known to talk excessively, hopping from one topic to another. She may be dogged by feelings of being overwhelmed.

Thinking Before Acting

The impulsive type may suffer irritability, anger, and impatience. She, in fact, cannot curb her reactions. In interactions with others, he may speak without thinking, interrupt others, and suffer poor timing. These people sometimes suffer addictions like impulsive shopping or even eating disorders.


Beware of the evil criminal, whose signs show he is about to commit ADHD. Oogie boogie wanna noogie.

Still, "warning signs". We're not a bunch of criminals, good grief.

Albert Einstein was said to be ADHD... or an Aspie...

All I need do now is become a success. Where there's a Will there's a Jean-Luc nearby... :rofl:
