Bonnie Mincu’s blog came up with a concept new to me, that some of us ADDers or ADHDers think that using a calender is a cop out. They pride themself on their memory. Would this fit this any of my gentle readers?
I can’t imagine living without the appointment book. And Bonnie gives good tips on not using more than one book or you’ll cause problems (I have done this!), so it has to have big enough slots to hold a lot of info, and on how to use electronic ones. For Bonnie’s blog, clik here (haven’t been able to get the current one)
please forgive my spelling mistakes or strange words. I’m 34, just getting diagnosed with ADHD. I’ve been labelled a failure, a screw up and a disappointment all my life, despite being told at the same time that I’m incredibly bright and even winning prizes. I’ve always been labelled with Anxiety (which is also probably true) but recently my wife was sent a course for the spouses of lunatics and we began to realise that I fitted all the criteria for ADHD. every time I read something about ADHD I feel like I’m reading about myself: I injured myself with excercise the way you did; I have almost the same employment history as Mr.L.
My luck breaks are that I came across the right information at the right time, found the right job (although I still have to stop myself quitting every six months) and your book. I’m waiting for my appointment with the psychiatrist, but I remain hopeful and your book has really helped me.
