I was on time for everything today!

I had a lot of places to be at very specific times today and I actually planned things out so carefully that I got to all of my appointments in plenty of time.

That may not seem like a big deal to a lot of people but to someone with ADHD it’s HUGE.

If you’re neurotypical, you have no idea how many details are involved in the process of arriving somewhere on time. Figuring out how many things you can do in between appointments, when to stop what you are doing, when to leave, how long it will take you to get there, and then figuring out when and how to extricate yourself from one appointment in time to start the process of getting to the next one.

All of that stuff often ‘just happens’ for neurotypical people but for those of us with executive function issues, all of those things have to be conscious decisions.

And we have so many possibilities float up for each decision that the process is even more exhausting.

So, I’m calling today a complete victory!
