I’m sure this doesn’t make you feel any better, but your post and this thread has made my day! I am totally in the same boat, and it’s such a relief to have other people say they are, too. Yesterday I cut a chocolate truffle in half, put one half back in the box, put the box in the cupboard, and….where did I put that half truffle I wanted to eat? D*mn! I don’t have any tips, unfortunately. I do notice that if I get super frazzled about the missing/forgotten thing, I go into an AD/HD spiral and start doing other spacey things.(Typical example: I leave my wallet at the store, discover this on the way home, and run a red light because I’m so frazzled because of forgetting the wallet.) It helps if I take some deep breaths and try not to freak out. Turning the incident into a funny story helps, too, except that my family doesn’t have a sense of humor about my AD/HD–they just think it’s super annoying.
