Forgetfulness – Came home from a great but tiring weekend, got caught up playing the Wii with Natty, popped some popcorn, watched a movie with the Russian and just forgot to write my next T4TD. Being forgetful is something that I and most people with ADHD struggle with. When your mind is racing things tend to fall through the cracks. My memory strategies? I send myself emails, set alarms on my phone, use post-its, and ask others to keep me accountable.
When you do forget something important, and you will, try not to beat yourself up, that will only make matters worse. If possible complete the task, keep moving forward and be mindful to set up memory safeguards for that next important thing you shouldn’t forget.
