Adult ADHD and Memory Problems
Memory problems are not owned by those of us who live with Adult ADHD, but our disorder can certainly exacerbate things. For me, to be frank, my ears don't always work too good! That's why I write, write, write. Taking notes is one of my number one coping mechanisms to accommodate for my lack of auditory endurance - aka I drift off when people are talking and taking notes provides both a way to stay on task and a way to review later what the heck my teachers, friends etc were talking about.

Hi! Thank you for being willing to keep this blog. I love seeing a queer couple! I was just diagnosed with ADHD (33 years old) and trying to navigate how to cope with this in my own life which includes maintaining a healthy romantic relationship with someone I love. I REALLY look forward to hearing more from you and your wife.
Hurrah for effective strategies!!!
This is so true. I find myself taking notes when reading blogs (like this one!) to remind myself of what I've read and focus more effectively on the reading at hand.
