      So you may have heard this 100 times with both DID and ADHD. But genuinely… Notes. My partner has both and leaving notes and making checklists and planning out his day on paper is really helping him function and feel productive. With DID in general having someone your whole system can trust I think is an important one most people don’t think about. For me that’s my partner. Having someone who will tell you who was out and (at least general) give an explanation of what happened, really really helps.

For DID, focusing on the positive parts like making relations with the other alters can help. Communication with parts/alters is also helpful and talking to a mental health professional who understands how to work with DID is advised. For ADHD, being aware of your emotions and writing down how you are feeling helps with concentration. Doing your hardest tasks first in work and personal life, saying "No," more often, using timers, and prepping for your next day can also be beneficial. Working with ADHD, not against it, is also suggested. If medication is not an option, developing healthy habits to counter the negative effects of ADHD such as writing stuff down on lists as soon as you think of it, keeping a widget on your home screen with that list, and telling people your intentions can help.
