    Electronic or paper depends on your preference and maybe age. I grew up with paper, and the first dayplanner i had in the business world was a franklin planner. I still use it as it makes sense and is in a format I became accustomed to. I tried a phone app but I am a hands on visual person, and that was too cloud-like for me.

    I also eventually bought a smaller, more manageable classic sized binder when the location in Franklin-Covey Denver location was closing. Having a nice leather, durable notebook takes it too a level of importance making it not easy to overlook or forget. I was stunned recently when a person about half my age, where I was paying a bill, remarked when I opened it up “Wow–now that’s organization. I just try to keep things on my phone, but you put me to shame.”

    I do best by trying to list only 3 important things to do a day that have an A (most important rating). Anymore and I get overwhelmed a bit. Good luck

    Correct. The hurdles for ADHD disability is a catch 22 situation. Also, trying to sue for discrimination is the same thing, a catch 22, and corporate attorneys are trained in beating claims as a result of the catch 22.

    Running IS my psychotherapy. I am on a 4 days a week running schedule, with cross training 2 days and 1 day for rest. Cross training. Bleachers, walk with a backpack, weights. Nothing too hard. Running is a great anti-depressant and they say it helps focus.

    Ideally, I would spend at least 1 hour a day hiking in the mountains, but i live nowhere near mountains right now.

    I was on Teva 10mg, 4 a day, sublingual (the only way I can take it with any predictability and best bio-availability), for 30 days. Did well. In school for 8 weeks, 97 GPA, CDL Class A. Plus working long hours.
    Then due to insurance change about 4 days ago went with 20mg (cheaper) and split them, but the new ones are Northstar. Not the same for me. First, the Teva were blue and oval, and the Northstar is round, off-white and round. Teva split fine but even with a splitter the Northstar just seem to crumble.

    I would say even though I feel some stimulant effect I feel just blah, dull, not energized. I do not think for whatever reason, they work as well for me, so I am going to see if CVS can get the Teva.
