I've had a huge inattention problem ever since I can remember. I get carried away in my thoughts and whatnot very easily and as a result I lose attention of my surroundings; I forget to get off the bus at the right stop, lose credit cards, bus passes and money, forget about tasks I am supposed to be doing, etc.. In elementary school it was terrible; my teachers were exasperated and appointed me to private sessions with a pedagogue (whose consultation hasn't been very fruitful I presume). I try my best to be careful in my every day tasks but those few times I lower the guard I always end up either losing or forgetting something. This is really frustrating because, as I've found out many times, it can be rather costly. What can I do to correct this flaw? Is it possible that I need outside help, or is this simply a matter of adjusting myself?
