While researching ADHD I came across the concept of object permanence difficulties. It was explained to me like this
when someone with ADHD puts an object in the cabinet, they immediately forget it ever existed. Vegetables frequently rot in the fridge, they end up buying eleven jars of pasta sauce because they can’t remember if they have any, if a friend doesn’t talk to them for long enough that their contact slips down off the recent messages screen they totally forget they can still talk to them, they feel alone and friendless if they haven’t had human contact yet that day.
This is all me to a T, and I was wondering if this is really an ADHD thing or just a normal thing that happens to everyone?
