I have a problem with being a ditz. Always have. It's gotten better as I've gotten older (puberty was a mess), but I still have Mihoshi moments, especially when I don't have a set schedule to put my days in perspective.

Right now I'm still marginally employed. I've joined two at-will companies, but they're the kind that hire you for specific events so work is sporadic and I've only had one gig so far in the past month and a half.

It's no excuse, but I don't have structure in my life right now, and I lost my brand new planner, so my ditziness has run amok!

I've forgotten soooo many things. I missed an important meeting because I forgot what day it was. It's so embarrassing and frustrating. It could be depression related- I know I get more scatterbrained when I'm depressed or anxious. And I'm sleepy all the time, so maybe that's it.

I'm not asking for any sympathy because I know I'm in the wrong. I'm venting right now because I'm pissed at myself.

Any recovering ditzes have advice? Caffeine helps me focus sometimes but I don't like drinking it because I'm bipolar and it can push me to mania. I'm getting my planner on Saturday so that should help me some.
