Last night I reached for the wine glass, and instead of grasping it, I knocked it over. Red wine on the white tablecloth, tho I guess it didn’t matter too much since I’d already spilled a lot of pizza sauce on it. Trust me, I hadn’t had too much to drink; it’s not really ADD but it’s closely related. Many of us coping with ADD or ADHD also have to cope with incoordination and with learning disabilities too.
What is the strategy? Well, it’s not trying harder to be more careful; I’ve been told to be more careful all my life. Frankly, I don’t have one. I am careful about not putting things close to edges where I can knock them off. I guess that’s a strategy but it’s not much of one. Maybe just to accept the fact that I lack coordination; at least it’s not a moral flaw.
