“Unmedicated artists make better art” Bitch no meds means I just sit here with twenty creative ideas, no plan, and no executive function to do ANYTHING about it.

Me: Damn bro, I haven’t been doing my homework at all today, I need to do that.
My brain: Or, get this, you eat food.
Me: ...
Me: I’ve already eaten lunch though, and I don’t think I’m hungry?
My brain: Too late, I’ve already decided. We’re eating.

Are you trapped on tumblr right now?
Is there something you planned to do before you got trapped in the endless tumblr scroll?
Are you yelling at yourself to get up and do the thing, but you can’t, because you’re trapped in the endless tumblr scroll?
Consider this your save point.
Put tumblr down, stand up, stretch, and go do the thing you planned to do. Future you will be incredibly grateful.

Arts and crafts are perfect for adhd folk bc there's an immediate and visual progress.
Cut fabric, sew it together. You just made clothing.
Put some beads on some twine. You just made jewelry.
You can see your productivity.
Chores are the opposite. Yes, your kitchen is clean now. But you'll cook again that evening or the next day and you'll have to start over. Yes, you vacuumed. But two days later it's dusty again. Laundry done, until next week.
Chores never end.
But arts and crafts, nobody can undo the thing you made. You can hold it up and say "look. I made this. I did the productivity today" and nothing quite beats that serotonin rush.

So I saw this video on tiktok and since Kiddo and I are both super bad at remembering to do things and to do lists just don't seem to work I thought this was worth a try
So the key fobs came today and I filled them out.
Tumblr media
As you can maybe see some are specific to me and some are more specific to kiddo but most are just general chores
The bracelet things should arrive Monday and then we can give it a go during this lockdown and I can report back how well it works!

I feel people don't understand how complex ADHD is is because they can't grasp the concept of your brain literally denying you shit.
Like, your brain kinda IS you, it shouldn't be able to do that shit??? But then ADHD's like "pls father can i watch any of the 200 anime ive saved" and your brain says "p e r i sh" or "hey can i fucking move from this position" and your brain says "haha no<33".
