I have really been struggling with my ADHD lately. What mobile apps or programs do you guys recommend to help manage symptoms? How do you stay on task and remain focused?

Habitica has been helpful for building sustainable routines. It helps reduce cognitive load to get daily habits internalized.

Medito is nice for free meditations.

I've got nothing for ya when it comes to productivity apps. They never stick. I'm considering going back to a physical planner... writing things down by hand helps and avoids more distracting phone time.

I also like whiteboards. Avoids the out of sight - out of mind problem.

Hey! I also went to UCSD :) loved the variety of environments with different colleges + beach, wish I was diagnosed earlier :p

Expertadhdcoaching.com! I’ve enjoyed talking with someone who “gets it” though for me, some of it has also been hyper focus and “shiny new object syndrome” :) and reddit with all the adhd threads is pretty great as well for validation!

Is it accurate for nutrition labels to use net carbs instead of total carbs when calculating calories? For example I was excited to find these 70 calorie bagels. But the math ain’t mathing with 5g of fat and 37g of carbs. I started doing some research and realized they used net carbs but I can’t find a consensus on whether or not it’s actually 70 calories or 168 calories. I’m doing CICO to lose the last few lbs so trying to be as accurate as possible, I would really appreciate any insight!

How do you cope with insomnia? It hasn't been this bad in a long time but it's really giving me issues the past couple of weeks and I got a talking-to at work today because of my performance. Being overtired is also heightening my anxiety.

Mask mandates in the US for a certain amount of time will never work, it needs to be played like a game. There needs to be a goal (stanley cup) and strict enforcement (referees). Can’t just say “masks should be worn until 12/31”. There’s no incentive to wear a mask since they won’t cut it short if we do well and will extend it if we don’t do well. Also why a national mandate will do nothing. Imagine telling someone in NY they have to keep wearing masks because Cali can’t enforce anything

It’s been a grueling 18 months, for everyone. There’s a unique story I’d like to share and it’s my own but I have to believe it’s not only mine. I was privileged enough to be able to WFH during the pandemic and change jobs to a fully remote job during this time. The isolation has become so complete, with the lack of connection and professional rapport or daily respect/clarity thru slack convos and sporadic zoom - I’m at an all time mental low barely able to start this Monday morning.
