No wonder I couldn't finish that followup to my post on denial by today!

Take the quiz: "Your Psych-Ward diagnosis"

Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder
Diagnosis: (ADHD), formerly called hyperkinesis or minimal brain dysfunction, a chronic, neurologically based syndrome characterized by any or all of three types of behavior: hyperactivity, distractibility, and impulsivity.

It kind of makes sense. Some might speculate that it's probably why I'm wasting ten minutes right now taking the above test and posting this to my blog, rather than finishing that paperwork I need to do today. On the other hand, surgeons generally have to be very good at concentrating on the task at hand; so maybe it's not such a good test after all...

and one of the big misconceptions of ADD (especially with adults) is that they cannot concentrate.
In fact, many have learned to tunnel their concentration for certain tasks. The more intense the need for concentration ... the more tunneled the person gets. The more tunneled the person HAS to become to concentrate on this ..the more likely they have Adult ADD (grin)
Not sure you're off the hook just cause you're a surgeon.

Hey - this explains everything! No wonder I can't keep up with all your posts - you're not on the right dose!

(Just kidding)
