I am partially cured.
Well, as long as I take my meds. And as long as I write things down.
I continue to take Concerta and it does wonders for me. As I’ve written, it clears the muddled thoughts and enables me to think clearly through things. It also slows me down enough that I am slower to anger or frustration.
What it doesn’t do is break my habits or eliminate distractions.
I am working on little things, though, and making small strides. I now write things down much more than I used to and I can thank technology for that. I also found a great reminder app for the iPhone called Due that will persistently notify you about a todo item until you snooze or clear it. I am forgetting less.
It’s the bigger things I continue to have trouble with as I wrote about over 6 months ago. Sigh.
Or perhaps I need to reframe self-improvement as “living” and get on with it.
