The kind of thing those of us with ADHD would do. I did this at until I did it one too many times and now have a strategy to avoid it.
So my question is, do non ADHD people do this too?Wife sent me this picture this morning, she says if I leave her car at this fuel level again I’m not allowed to drive it! 😂😆 I’d say I got home just in time from Leamington Spa and left her 1 mile to her to the petrol station (which is only 0.5 miles away).

This is my stepson Mitch (25 with #ADHD) and his German Shepherd Joey. Today Mitch (Titch to me) heard that he got a 1st class honours degree in Sports Science. During those 3 years, he has also built up his own PT business to such an extent that he and his fiancé Megan have been able to buy their first home. Raising and training Joey has been no small task either!
This boy (I know he is a man, but he’ll always be my boy) is a grafter. He is all or nothing. He can do anything he puts his mind to and do it ridiculously well. Academia has been a challenge. Not because of the learning or the work, but because of the deadlines and the boring stuff! Mitch needs to find a reason to do something other than because someone else says he should. He had to keep his goal in mind and use that to push him through. He didn’t just get through it! He aced it and we couldn’t be more proud and impressed.
Mitch had many of the ups and downs that would typically be associated with a young man growing up with ADHD. It’s been no picnic. The ups were brilliant and the downs were messy. But here we are! #proudmama
