Can this be ADHD?

by LJD
(Central Ohio)

My husband is 56 and has just recently been diagnosed with ADHD. Im not convinced.

He has worked as a mechanichal engineer for over 20 years. He successfully oversees large programs and multimillion dollar budgets.
Meeting deadlines, staying within budget, being organized and on time are things he must do every day. He has worked for the same company for 13 years. He's never been fired.
He also has this interesting memory for numbers. He can remember thousands of engine part numbers instantaneously. This is only with numbers. Yet he's lost his wallet several times, cant remember to do everyday routine things or alot of his childhood.
Does this seem familiar to anyone?
