Messed Up Again with ADD ADHD– – – ADD Tip o the Day 527

Confession:

On Friday, I stood up my friend for our monthly breakfast appointment.

I felt badly about that plus I really enjoy our meetings.

At our last meeting, I’d written the next  appointment time in my appointment book, but I’d only written the time, 8:30.

I’ve been looking at that 8:30 Friday for a month, trying to figure out what it was about. Never got it. I do this fairly often, plus when I do write down the information, often I can’t read it later.

Strategy:

New rules – always write down the whole thing and make sure it’s legible.  Double check it  before I close the appointment book.

It’s like I double check that I put the credit card back in my billfold every time I use it. This has become a habit, and it works.

question o the day:

I’m trying to figure out my answer; there’s so many.

    that would be another mess up again, but I think the one year thinking of is the one where I messed up and put it to early and stopped it? Thanks.
