Hello, This is a great way to prioritize. I have struggled with AdHD Inattentive my whole life (first memories of failing and struggling…1st grade) but wasn’t diagnosed until age 39. I told my doctor I was sure I had it and after a lot of discussion he agreed but I didn’t know about “inattentive” for 6-7 more years from my son’s therapist. I can’t use a traditional “date book” – I use post it notes for immediate “to do” items like “bring lunch” “get gas” “pay rent” and a Bullet Journal for all the other millions of things that race through my mind constantly. Once I write them down they settle down a bit. When my kids were small I had to keep a pad of paper next to my bed to “park” thoughts or I couldn’t fall asleep. My Bullet Journal is flexible. I can skip a whole week if nothing important is going on (example: 8 weeks of quarantine in 2020) and not feel guilty about “wasting pages”. I can write quotes, songs, true crime facts, history dates/facts, countdowns etc. The Bullet Journal gives me freedom of guilt that a calendar or date book don’t. Guilt is one of my primary feelings and anything to let it go is a big plus for me. I’ll keep this question in mind from now on. Very helpful…thank you. I am still learning how to cope every single day.
