People with ADD or ADHD tend to do better if someone else is around.
My wife is back home and I’m glad, but I didn’t unravel or fall apart this time. OK, she wasn’t gone that long, but she was gone longer than the three days that I enjoy. The strategy was to make a schedule on the back of an envelope, and put one or two tasks that I hoped to do for each day. And mostly I did get those accomplished. So I was organized instead of just floundering around. I didn’t drink too much, eat too much, or watch TV and I only played two games of free cell the whole time she was gone. This was better, but I am glad she’s back.
