  1. Can I blame a weakness in executive functions for IGNORING a timer? or when a timer goes off, thinking “No, I want to continue doing what I’m doing right now” or “What I’m doing right now is more important than whatever I set the timer for”? It’s like my priorities are constantly shifting in my head. For instance, the timer goes off to tell me it’s time to get ready for bed. But instead of stopping what I’m doing (even when what I’m doing is NOT a priority and is NOT important), I think, “I’ll stop in a few minutes.” But “a few minutes” turns into an hour. Is this just IRRESPONSIBILITY, or a more severe weakness in executive functions? It’s like sometimes when I think of something I need to do, I just blow myself off (ignore myself)! I feel like a disobedient child who needs a nanny to MAKE me do things I should do.

      Hi Canny – yes, to some degree you can blame executive functions weaknesses! And the problems you describe are actually quite common. :) Have you explored ADHD treatment options, like medication, coaching, etc?
