My friend (we’ll call her Cathy) met up with some of her old pals in the city where she used to live. I could tell by the look on her face the visit hadn’t been completely positive.
“I was so embarrassed,” she said. One of her friends had been reminiscing about the good old days, while my friend stared blankly. “I couldn’t remember a thing about it.”
I felt sad for Cathy, who also has ADHD.
People with ADHD have bad memories, I said, trying to reassure her that there was a good reason why she couldn’t remember things from her past.
