Now before you scoot away, this is not a religious post. 

It’s just my attempt to put a little interest and humor into my headline. I have a really hard time writing interesting headlines.

So my dad had quite the sense of humor, but it was the dad kind. You know, not so funny. He got a lot of his jokes from church. (He thought Everybody Loves Raymond was a dirty show, so you can imagine.)

Anyway, here is one of his jokes:

A pastor goes to visit one of his older parishioners and he asks her if she believes in the hereafter.

She replies that yes, she does believe in the hereafter. She’s always finding herself in a room saying, “Now what am I here after?”

You can stop laughing now.

As a total aside, he also used to tell people that to get to heaven you had to go through Atlanta first. 😉

Do You Believe in the Hereafter?

Now the point that I am getting to is this: do you often find yourself in a room wondering what you are there after?

Me too.

It’s very common with ADHD.

A friend of my daughters, married with a couple of young children, contacted me recently when she found out I work with people with ADHD. She was forgetting a lot lately and wondered what to do.

I gave her ideas about different kinds of planners, dump lists, setting routines, finding one safe place to put things that needed to be safe, and more.

The answer I got back from her was that it wasn’t big things like that, it was the little stuff. The here after stuff.

I have to be honest. I’m a little stumped as to what to tell her.

I was hoping that you could help. Please, please, please, if you have any ways that help you remember the little stuff, leave a comment and help her.

In the meantime, here are the ideas that I have come up with:

So come on. Help a poor girl out.

What ideas can you add?

Tell me what you think!
