Life with ADD ADHD, Part Whatever — Add Tip O the 657

Here’s another life with ADD ADHD episode:

I had to do some clever detective work on the net to find the phone number I needed.  Was real proud of myself.  Wrote it down.  Closed the website.  Picked up the phone.

You following this so far?

Started dialing on my cell phone.  Got to the last two numbers. 


But it didn’t matter much.  I was dialing on my calculator.

Oh, well.

Found the number again on the net.  Wrote it down, legibly.

Dialed it carefully.  It had been disconnected.

You still with me?

Rechecked the website.  I had transposed two numbers.

Redialed.  Got the right answering machine.  Left a message. 

Hope I left my phone number correctly.  Pretty sure I spelled my name right.

Anybody understand what I’m talking about here?

The strategy:

Whenever I write down numbers, stop at once and check that I can read them.  I know this.  I just didn’t do it.  

A strategy for the rest of it?  No strategies, that’s just life with ADD ADHD.
