      @ToastyToast honestly, same here. I've literally tried everything I could have thought of. I HATE having alarms on my phone and no idea why either. I have plenty of calenders but out of sight out of mind. So...yea

      I need to talk my own advice on this, but during really big brain fog times, whenever I leave somewhere or go to a new space (upstairs/downstairs, leave for the day etc ) I try to stop for a second and ask myself where am I, where am I going and what am I doing. I’m really bad at writing down lists and never looking at them. So work in progress over here too.

      i use google notes! it’s a cloud drive that connects to your google/gmail account and i’ve been using it for 5+ years now. it has everything i ever need to remember such as passwords, reminders, to-do lists, my bucket lists, and appointments if necessary. you just have to remember to use it. that’s my thing, if i know i won’t remember something, i’ll be like “let me write that down”. i have short term memory loss, this is crucial for me. as for events, why not use a digital journal and document events that are memorable and you want to keep memorable? i use the finch app, it’s a journal with a cute little finch you can talk to every day!

        @celestialmoonaura edit to add: for me with reminders in particular, i HATE having apps open on my phone when they don’t need to be open to conserve my battery. so i leave my notes app open on purpose to let myself know, “okay, i can’t close this yet because i have reminders that i need to remember to do”

      I use alarms and I don’t forget things as much anymore because I always leave things in the same exact place so I don’t have remember where they are. Also, I realized that if I don’t do things right in that moment … I forget so I have to do things in the moment I remember them or I won’t remember. I do have trouble with remembering to drink water lol and eat. Haven’t figured out how to remember to drink water.

        @Lonelyturtle — i do the exact same thing with leaving things out if place and using alarms! my s/o makes lighthearted jokes about it lol

      Uhhhhh heh heh... Yeah, I don't. I've forgotten to eat for most of the day many times before... And I've tried many things to help me remember to do things, and nothing I have tried works.

      Alarms help me a lot! Dry erase marker on the bathroom mirror is something I’ve been wanting to try! Writing down or doing things the moment I know they need to be done.

      This may not work for you, it is hit or miss for me but try alarms on your phone, calanders everywhere like on your phone, carry one in case you don't have your phone, calander at home. I have a weekly dry erase board, it helps, also I have a punnit square design on dry erase I made and I list important things there and mark them off as completed. I even have a weekly one by my bed. Remember for us its usually out of sight, out of mind, so I hung the weekly by the door and the punnit in the kitchen and another weekly by my bed.
