Fine at Forgetting

Sometimes I forget things. Like writing in this blog. I promised myself to make an entry one a week... and its been at least a month.

It gets really easy to forget what we don't want to remember. Obligations, appoitments - even cold hard facts. I am a expert at forgetting, and it feels just fine.

I am notorious for forgetting to make unplesant dentist appoitments. Which is understandable. But forgetting about bills, medicine, cleaning supplies... these things start to add up if you don't check yourself.

Yes, hauling a giant economy size jug of laundry detergent home insn't fun or glamourous. But you know what is less fun? Having dirty clothes.

So this is me doing some laundry. Because its not so fun to work as something- like a blog- and have it fizzle out.

Yes, taking time out of my day to focus on my many hang ups isn't always awesome, but hopefully, the end product of my writing is a little helpful. And, more importantly, I can help break my bad habit of selective memory!

  1. I am very glad that you write this blog. It helps remind me that what I have is a "disorder" not a character flaw, and that I have to "manage" it if I want to be happy and not damage my relationships with others. Maybe tomorrow, I will make the dentist appointment I have being "going to" make since June (and I don't even mind going!!) Thanks again.
