And then people get frustrated with me, because I'm not doing all these things...when they know I can do them. They've seen me at my good times so they know how capable I can be so they expect that of me all the time and they just don't get it.
Then again...I don't get it either.

It's very frustrating.
Agreed. Being on the medication definitely makes it all more manageable. But without all the bad habits and "laziness" come right back. The problem is it is so tempting to not take, or put off taking meds for me at least... not sure if this is the "laziness" part of me taking over or the lack of solid routines.

But we have to remember that while it may come across as laziness to those who do not understand, we know this is not the real problem. Which brings me back to the executive function, or our lack of it.
