At the Library with ADD ADHD
Went to the library to get a specific book. Computer says it’s 617.48, and it’s on the shelf. Went to the shelf. Not there. There was a big book on brain injury, a subject I’m interested in, and I considered taking it instead, but I really wanted the first book.
I know myself, ADD ADHD, so back to the card catalog and recheck the number. It’s correct. Go look on the shelf again. Nope.
I’m not proud. Asked the librarian for help. Checks the computer. Says it’s on the shelf. Librarian goes to the shelf. Hands me the book. Was right where it was supposed to be, right next to the big brain injury book.
Best I can figure, the big brain injury book captured my attention and I couldn’t see anything else?
ADD ADHD and Chess?
Also, once again, I’ve given up on chess. One of the reasons I’m no good is that I only see the pieces I’m considering and never notice the bishop sitting over there on the corner.
A Good ADD ADHD Strategy – Planning Ahead
Have already set an appointment with the tax man. But when is it? I know I wrote it down somewhere. It’s not in my appointment book. It’s not on Martha’s calendar. I have to call. It’s March 3. Oh, there it is in my appointment book, “tax”, on March 3. And also on Martha’s calendar, the same.
Maybe I was looking for the man’s name, and not for “tax”?
Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
- Look again
- Get help.
- But if it’s my glasses I can’t find, look on my face first.
