It’s just part of having an ADHD brain. Your thoughts are racing, you’re trying to get something done which can feel like an emergency, and things get misplaced in the midst of it.
Ask yourself what you can do to prevent yourself from throwing away important items like your wallet? Get a neon colored wallet (or put neon tape on it)? Put tape with a note on it — “Don’t throw me in the trash!”? If this is the way your brain works, what can you do to combat fallout?
