There’s always hope!
I’m in a somewhat similar situation.
Until I found people similar to myself, I was sooooooo frustrated (timers, pff haha) – unless I change my systems in place every so often – they become white noise and I ignore them (reminders, timers, sticky notes, phone calls………) . So, I’m
with you. It’s a constant struggle. I accept that I have a disorder and for some things I am going to find workarounds where for others… I’ll just have to adjust/accept.
Secondly, what is working for you ? You have hobbies (Aikido) you have a job (or are financially stable enough to have hobbies), … I’m POSITIVE there are Tons of others. ==> some things did work for you. You have learned a bunch over the past 20 years.
Trying yet another new therapist/coach next week. I may even ask her to go over Tuckman’s workbook with me (since I can’t stick with it by myself).
