Couldn’t help commenting about laundry. It has always been an issue for me, and only since realizing I have ADD did it all make sense. After starting medication I’m suddenly able to get through it without so much as flinching! The sorting is what I think did me in. Actually shortly after getting diagnosed I wasn’t too sure I wanted to go the mediation route and one day I caught myself getting really anxious trying to get through sorting a couple of loads for the wash. It suddenly all made sense and seemed ridiculous at the same time! I won’t say it’s my favorite thing to do and I no longer occasionally get huge backlogs, but it no longer brings on such feelings of dread and I can get caught up pretty quickly.
I also read Sari Solden’s book and agree it’s great. I especially love the chapter where she begins by writing that “Woman Wanted” advertisement – so true
Another great book is ADD-Friendly ways to Organize your Life by Judith Kolberg & Kathleen Nadeau,PHD.REPORT ABUSE
