Reply To: Losing it


So familiar. I just DON’T SEE these things. If what you’re missing is critical, you can do this:

Grab a box and put everything — every single item — on the area around you in it. As you’re putting the stuff in the box, and the spaces around you clear, you’ll find that bun (or more-important-thing) because the “noise” of the surrounding objects is getting cleared out of your overburdened brain.

Downside: you now have a box of shit that you need to put back in its proper place. But…
Uptside: you know how a box of shit that wasnt in the first place to begin with (you have ADHD), and it’s easier to think through where that stuff goes and put it in a new, better place. PLus, leave the trash in the box and throw it out!
