Does anyone's add push important things like eating or using the bathroom to the back of your mind so you go all day without doing them til your body is screaming at you?

      Yes! I thought I was the only one!!

      YES!! I'm actually so so glad I'm not the only one who does that. Like, I'll be gaming, drawing, or practicing a song on my ukulele, and I'll just completely forget/not even feel that I need to eat or use the toilet.

      yeah! I think it has to do with executive dysfunction. I find it's worse when I'm hyperfocusing or there are other more attention-grabbing things to do

      Totally I often postpone showering again and again, sometimes for days.

      I had that issue as a kid but outgrew it by the time I was a teenager

      Absolutely yes! It seems like I always felt that I had so much to do that I would get overwhelmed and then totally forget about important things even down to bodily functions.

      Yup, and hydrating too. I keep forgetting to drink water.

      The above advice is great and something I never thought of before. Thanks!

      Yep. I dont even realize what's wrong until I've been stressed or anxious for a long time. Then I realize that I'm hungry or need to pee. Lol

      Oh, I really know what you mean... There are days when I feel every distraction makes me forget what I was going to do, even on my way to the bathroom. I suggest maybe setting times during the day where you make yourself take a break for yourself, no matter what!
