I was diagnosed with "borderline" ADD when I was 9 or 10, but I feel like it's gotten a bit worse as I've gotten older. They tried one small, purple-ish pill (don't remember the name) but my parents said it didn't help, so I was taken off medication. My mother has tried to model ways of overcoming my ADD, with things such as making lists, keeping calendars, etc. I can make all the lists I want, but I either lose them or forget about them. When I was younger it wasn't too big of a deal, since I mostly just forgot homework, books, or to do chores. Oh, and I lost things. It's become common for me to set things down on my way to somewhere else, and spend half an hour looking for whatever I lost, after I finally realize I misplaced it. I've lost keys in my jacket pocket (only realized after driving to and from the grocery store I thought I lost them at), and even, in my worst moment by far, walked away from my car in a parking lot when I had left the car on with the key still in the ignition!!! I'll be leaving for college after this school year, and I'm extremely nervous about living by myself. What do you do to try and stay organized, and keep a clear head? I need all the advice/help/suggestions I can get!
