UGGHHHHH. Just totally missed important Dr. appt this morning due to Ritalin.... I thought that Ritalin helped with staying on top of things!? I started taking IR (vs longer acting) because I no longer feel any effect with extended. Got up 9:45am, took meds, breakfast, started replying to a few emails. Must've got absorbed (didn't realize over an hour had passed). Then my heart starts pounding, because I had to leave for appt & hadn't taken a shower...forgot it takes 40 mins by bus to get there.... Part of the reason i take Ritalin is to stay organized & on top of things. And it's making me MORE TIME-BLIND, SLOW, LATE for stuff...More often, I am losing track of time (focusing or obsessing on non-important tasks) and then I miss/forget important stuff. Failing to estimate how long things/travel will take.... Is this typical?? I don't want to tell pdoc, because it is literally the ONLY med that helps me with apathy, ability to initiate/complete tasks. BTW, I only took 10mg IR this morning (usually I take 20mg extended) and I get stuck, unable to switch tasks.... HELP. How do you mitigate? Put neon post-it's everywhere with strict (minute by minute) time schedule??? 😩
