I am laughing as I read each of these posts. Other than losing the hood of my car I’ve done/lost everything anyone’s mentioned above. For the most part, I’ve stopped beating myself up — I tell myself I’m a really good and nice person and nothing I do is on purpose. A few things I’ve found helpful: 1) I have a small purse that only has my keys, phone, chapstick and wallet – I either carry this by itself or put it in any other bag I carry 2) I put my credit card away RIGHT after I use it otherwise it’s as good as gone and 3) I look for a landmark every time I park my car. If I don’t then I wander around clicking my lock and unlock button. ADD can be really hard on the soul but don’t make it worse by beating yourself up.
