@Stace126:  While some of those things are something I might do/forget (I’m ADD), I would venture to say it is most likely *not* ADD.  Since this is a sudden thing, I’m almost certain it’s something else.

Also, I weird quirk about being ADD is that you *can* forcus on things you enjoy (like reading).  In fact, most experience a weird sort of hyperfocus.

I doubt you have ADD (Which I believe is overdiagnosed in general, but I’m no doctor.) since it has happened pretty suddenly.

 

Again, because it’s been rather sudden, I doubt you have Alzheimers (Which isn’t commonly diagnosed in people under 65) or a tumor. Tumors don’t just pop up and go “Oh hi.”

You mentioned a wedding and buying a house, and I agree with your friends — stress makes your brain work funny. You’re trying to prioritize what to worry/think over and reading or food just don’t make the cut of important enough. If you’ve been under a lot of stress or thinking about a lot of things (Or worrying in general) I’d chalk it up to that.

I highly doubt you have any sort of disorder. You’re just distracted.
