That way you can track progress more accurately and less forgetfully! When you have a consult about your dose you will be more convincing, when you can show daily trends – whether good or bad. Ask for feedback from friends and relatives too, their responses may surprise you, they may see more improvements than you do, after all perfectionism is a key part of ADHD!
