Lol…sounds like my shopping experiences. I still walk up and down avery aisle, even though I make a list (I’d never remember anything if I didn’t have a list!!). I am sometimes prompted, by sight, of things I need but forgot to write on the list (in the loo, think “must put loo paper on the list”, and by the time I have finished int he bathroom, I have forgotten about the list) . I always manage to overlook one item on the list every time I shop, even though I check the list over and over. And it’s usually the one thing we neeed the most, or one that hubby wants – so often that he now thinks I do it on purpose to irritate him!!
I have a notebook I take everywhere. I don’t look at it much though. But I find it useful to keep lists in, like books I already have by a favourite author (so if I see one on sale, I can check if I have it so reduce useless impulse buying). To do lists have to go right under my eyes, or I will never see them. Stuck to the kettle is my favourite spot!
How are the meds goind SG? And the anxiety? I am ready to throw something right now. Tried to make myself an appointment but three tries later and I have not had any luck. I am running out of psychiatrists on my list. They are retiring, not taking new patients, or not answering the phone. Aaaarrggghhhhh!!!!!!!! My emotions are all over the place at the moment as a result and I have a headache that won’t go away. Not to mention crappy sleepREPORT ABUSE
