Not this time, ADD!
With my ADD ADHD, Christmas usually sneaks up on me and I’m rushing to try to find a gift for my wife. But this time I’m ahead. Why, it’s two whole weeks away, and I’m already thinking about it!
The ADD trap and the red flag
Actually, with ADD ADHD, everything sneaks up on me. It’s a red flag when I hear myself thinking, “It’s two whole weeks.” That seems like way far off but I need to realize it’s just around the corner or I’ll be in trouble, again. The red flag warns me of the trap.
Fortunately, Christmas falls late in the month, so every time I check my appointment book, there’s a chance I might see it – it’s circled in red. And with ADD ADHD, I’ve needed to make the habit of checking the appointment book many time a day.
And the three month at a glance calendar on my wall also shows the 25th in red. And I need to look at it frequently too.
And “Christmas present” is on my to do list for today (of course, it was on yesterday’s list too.)
So hopefully this will work and my marriage will stay safe.
ADD ADHD and time
This is a major problem. Why?? It doesn’t seem to be just due to lack of focus. Need lots of strategies to cope with this.
