Are you sick of all the "get organized" advice?
I don’t want to organize myself and I don’t want my life to progress like clockwork. I think it’s because I see the process as benefiting others who put me down. I don’t see the relevance of it for me. Maybe that’s selfish. But I don’t see putting all this work into changing so that I can now be approved of by others. I don’t see it as doing it to benefit myself. I mean, why do this when the rest of the world will condemn me no matter what I do? I hate all these brochures and articles and webinars on how people with ADHD can organize their lives successfully. I just plain don’t want to do it. BECAUSE of my ADHD, I can’t REMEMBER how getting things accomplished by being more organized makes me feel better. We live in the now, we don’t learn from our mistakes, and we’re blissfully unaware of how our actions today will generate either success or failure in the future. It’s like my brain is just wandering around outer space all the time.
