I just saw an ad for an app called inflow that’s supposed to help manage adhd and create strategies to address things like putting off and staying on task. It’s $22 a month which is cheaper than a coach but more expensive than a planner. Odds that it will actually help vs. being another recurring charge that I keep putting off canceling because of my executive dysfunction?

$22/month is pretty steep for an app. Does your credit card company give you any options for temporary payment details? I have Citi and I can create a temporary credit card number and set a timeline for the card # to stop working (this doesn’t impact my real card number; it’s like using an email alias but for cards).

I use this feature for all of my trials so I don’t get stuck paying for things I’ll forget about.

Wwwwhat??? I didn't know this existed

They have a seven day free trial to start and actually send you a reminder email to cancel at the end of the trial:
“Staying on top of subscriptions with ADHD can be hard, so I wanted to email you a reminder about your free trial ending in the next 48 hours. If you feel Inflow isn’t for you that’s ok and please remember to cancel your free trial. You can find more information on how to do this <here>.”

Never heard of it, but I feel your statement about failing to cancel no longer needed things. You would think something that actively drains the bank account would get done quickly, but…you would be wrong.

I think it just depends on what works for you and the discipline to make it work. Sign up for it and immediately cancel for the next month so you have a month to try without worrying about forgetting to cancel. Make it a one step thing.

Just checked this out … I think I might try it! Looks like the annual rate gets it down to $8/month so I might do one month at $22 then cancel and do the full year if I like it? My thoughts on whether it will help - you’ll only know if you try 🤷‍♀️

3rd year associate here. I'm a corporate attorney. After a rough year of a lot of personal (much of which led to my diagnosis of ADHD). I am on the hunt for a new job and have been thinking more and more about the impact my ADHD has on my work and I feel like the deficiencies in my executive function make it seemingly incompatible for me to practice law -- full stop.

I feel like I can't succeed because I have trouble working independently and managing time.

Any suggestions?

It’s a pointless phone call. Why do I have to repeat these shenanigans every month?! Is it just Rite Aid? Is CVS any better? So irritating.
