#26 - Logged back in so I can let you guys know, I wrote this.  [+] (14 replies) 04/29/2016 on "Writing down things I want... +3

This is going to sound insensitive, but I don't mean it to be. I really am just curious...

How in the fuck does writing things down "physically pain you?" How could you possible written that comment if writing shit down physically pains you? Like, so far your case for dysgraphia is not strong since you wrote a perfectly coherent comment. And if it only manifests itself while you are writing with a pen or pencil then that still means you can write things down effectively with a keyboard as you did in your comment. So why couldn't you use a cell phone memo pad or cheap laptop to keep track of shit? And if you do do that, then we are back to the post's point of finding a way to assist you in living with your disability, whatever it may be.

I meant with pen/paper kind of write down. My hand was not meant to physically hold a pencil or pen. That being said, I can't bring a computer around everywhere I go to just log in a few notes. The thing about my mobile devices, is that the notes go off screen, and the term "Out of sight, out of mind" in tragically a truth about life for us. Remembering to check the notepad, We're back to square 1 about linear-oriented memories.

What stops you from setting an alarm to go off every hour to remind you to check the pad? I set alarms for all kinds of shit and when they pop up they go "Go pick up your sister," "exam in 24 hours" whatever.

The fact that it disrupts our habits and screws us up for the rest of the day.
#35 - ellojello (04/29/2016) [-]
Okay, but I thought the whole problem was that you guys fail to really develop "habits" since you don't do logical thinking well. What "habit" is being interrupted by being reminded of the shit you are supposed to be doing? Further, what habit is disrupted by just looking at your phone for 5 seconds? No different than getting a text or something; or do those throw you off as well?

Our time compartmentalization is also affected by this. If we are reminded to do something, that is our immediate goal. If we don't do it then and there, we're not going to remember to do so later.
#38 - ellojello (04/29/2016) [-]
Exactly, that would be the point of the alarms?

You'd set them for all the things you'd need to do through the day so they are constantly keeping you on point? If, for whatever reason, you absolutely can't do the thing right then, just snooze the alarm for five minutes instead of disabling it.

And again, I don't see how you have any "habits" whatsoever to interrupt if you don't have the ability to do logical though progression so I'm not sure I understand that particular complaint of yours about using alarms.

It'd be a constant distraction that'd we'd have to face with risk of completely spacing out on what we were currently doing. The entire thing turns into this vicious cycle where you either have to sacrifice one aspect of functionality for another. It'd just be easier to hire someone who processes information linearly to help us on our day-to-day life.
#50 - kalaark (04/29/2016) [-]
Nah. If you're currently doing something more important, then you set your alarm wrong. Set up the alarms in a line. 8:00, 9:00, etc. All you have to do is look at the very last alarm to know when you're free or busy. Right?

It all comes down to basic organizational structure. What may seem like the easiest way to handle something to you, could be the biggest stresser out there for someone with an EFD. Remember, We can't use linear-logic in our day to day life, or if we try, it puts tremendous strain on our brain. Simple solutions for linear-pathed brains, are incredibly tedious and screwy in a brain with an EFD.

I had to look this up since I haven't heard about it before. This is the site I used so shame me if this a terrbile source:

While it says those with EFD struggle with understanding how to schedule tasks or where to start with projects, the treatment is to make calendars, task lists, time limits, and explaining your tasks to others. It seems like the treatment is just doing exactly what your brain cannot comprehend, which makes little to no sense to me.

That's actually the thing. We're not considered devastatingly disabled, so research on the problem isn't really funded all that much.
