    That's part of the remapping is cutting connections that don't need to be there. There's no point is having a connection betwen Outlook and EPAnet, but I found one. So I severed it.

    Uhhhh...I don't think this is the proper method for severing them...

    And I just found out from Mom that, according to several teachers I had growing up, I had ADD tendencies. MS, my foot.

    My mom has reports from my teachers all the back to preschool saying that I was disorganized. I was amused.

    Let's see, the ones I remember hearing: disorganized, distracted easily (usually by the book I was reading), horrible handwriting (still is), skips steps, reinterprets directions to suit self, fidgety, doesn't pay attention (only got that one once or twice), won't sit still...
    The issues I remember having: boring teachers, being taught something I already knew, horrible handwriting, classes that were entirely too long, boring/ remedial (for me) home/classwork. You have to get me involved or give me a reason to want to do it, otherwise I struggle. "A paycheck" or "an A" are not acceptable reasons. You have to get me interested or present it as an unsolved problem. I can listen all day long and not hear a word of it because what's in my own head is more interesting.

    That sounds more like you are gifted and less like ADD to me. I'm no expert on the subject of course, but my dad has been an instructor of the gifted for 15 + years and my GF is gifted and had much the same experience. She hated school and even didn't go for two years (went to the library and educated herself) until she got into a gifted boarding school. ADD...attention deficit disorder...no, the disorder was in school not you, what I like to called EDD..Educationally Deficient Disorder.

    In this case, I believe it was both. Even when I was being challenged in the magnet system (schools for gifted kids), I'd still zone out, even it was challenging material. Calculus was a prime example. So was biology. Having too many brains for the system and too much energy to deal with bring bored runs in my family.
    Just applied for a couple environmental jobs. I hope I get a new job soon. This one blows. It's not the work, so much (although parts of the actual work suck donkey sack, like filling out permits), but having no peers is not cool. Especially since I get treated as somewhat of an outsider because I don't live in fucking Andrews. I'm actually kinda hoping for the tech job, even though it includes a fair amount of travel, because all that travel is field time, which rocks.

    I think most cases of ADD are just people who are too bright for the school system, but mine does affect me outside of school too.
