alright so with ADHD I really struggle with emotional & object permanence in my relationships, any tips on how to explain unintentional ghosting?
How do I explain this to my boyfriend or friends in a way they would understand?

    Out of sight out of mind is really common in ADHD. And although it may hurt your friends feelings maybe if they understood where this was coming from, it may help them put it into context.

    I have gone as far as making a list of my friends. When I am bored I look at the list and pick one to reach out to.

    Also I add reminders on my calendar to text my friends who live further away very few weeks to catch up. Also, I respond to texts as soon as I read them. Otherwise I will never remember to responded

    One other thing, if I can’t respond to a text right away, I ask Siri or Google to remind me in a few hours to text that person back
