To Do Or Not To Do

[FB crosspost]

I'm so impressed with people who eschew to-do lists. Even before the TBI, my brain has pretty much operated like a toddler on crack. It's a constant cacophony of competing thoughts; some urgent, some fey and fleeting. List making is the surest way for me to reduce my anxiety and quiet that nagging sense that I've forgotten something, which I usually have. That realization comes generally in the middle of cooking something when I reach for the ingredient that I didn't go out and buy or at 2:30 AM when I'm yanked from deep sleep in a heart beat dead stop panic of "shitshitshitshit!"

May I one day have the mental acuity of those who shall not make lists.
