We've all joked around about the way ADHD affects our lives, we've made comics and threads and all sorts of things to finally get to share the specific ways that having ADHD messes with the shit we do and how it often gets in the way of doing 'simple' things. But there has been, I feel, a struggle for a lot of people to go from recognizing what their ADHD does to them, to finding some ways to deal with the problems it presents.

So I made this twine as a collection of things that have helped me, and will hopefully help you too, even just a little. Or, perhaps, help you find new, different techniques that help you with your ADHD even if mine don't help you.

This is a project made in Twine, which means you simply download the file, and open and play it right in your browser! Safari users have reported some difficulties with Twine, so use another browser if possible.

Hi, thanks for providing this resource! I just bought it, and am having some trouble downloading it using the Itch.io client. It says no compatible downloads were found. (I'm on Windows 10 but I don't think that should matter, right?)

try downloading directly from the website page instead of thru the client!

'oh well, now I can't start until the next hour, on the hour' - is a thing I've done and I'm sad / happy to see someone else mention.

And the todo list as a litany of obligations really only good as a self-directed cudgel also hits close to home. I have a vague attempt at a "bullet journal" in my pocket at all times that kind of approximates your notion of order of operations, maybe making it a closer approximation would help.

Thanks for writing this... I think I'm still in this "holy shit you too?!" phase and just starting to ease into a "now what do I do about it" phase

This looks really useful, thank you!

I know you don't have all the answers (none of us do otherwise we'd be unstoppable), but I do have a question for you:

In regards to always trying to time things on the hour, do you have any specific advice regarding bed times? I always find myself saying "Ok, going to bed at 1am" and then it gets to 1:14 and I see the clock and I'm like "Oh well, guess I'll keep busy until 2am then go to bed" and then I start getting ready for bed at 2am and I don't fall asleep until even later...

I already have some bedtime alarms set, but I can never follow them because I'm always so focused on finishing whatever I'm currently doing.
