Because you know, building a Google Forms replacement so you can have it tied in directly to your systems is totally a reasonable thing to do.
I've been building, like... an enterprise level tooling website for the Star Citizen org I help run over the past few years. And over the last month or so I've gone a bit overboard.
Some thoughts on recent stuff around #ADHD diagnosis, treatment, telehealth, and mental health access

@Flonne It’s just really horrible because it’s already hard enough to get things scheduled and keep them going when a contractor constantly leaves the ball in your court; to then basically “well whatever” on an appointment is just the cherry on top of a lot of mental energy spend.
@cara It’s definitely a learned anxiety I see in a lot of other ADHD folks. Because we initially assume “my friends are all still my friends” and then find out they’re mad at us because we didn’t actively stay in touch :/
@Flonne that said this one has been particularly egregious; most services are “reminds of an appointment, let us know if you need to cancel”, and even the ones that request confirmation usually do so more than 24 hours in advance.
@Flonne it really depends on the service, and I’ve noticed trends based on metropolitan area. In SF and Austin contractors were almost aggressive on keeping the ball moving, whereas here in Orlando, and in other parts of Texas, it can feel like pulling teeth to get anything done.
Today I learned that the in-game "manual" that Ralsei gives you in Deltarune 1 and that is a running joke because Kris doesn't ever read it actually exists in its entirety as images embedded in the game files, but there's no way in the game to actually access them

Contractors reaching out the morning of, via a text message, to “confirm your appointment”, and then assuming you aren’t available when you don’t reply? That is Violence against ADHD. If I put it on my calendar, assume I will not think about it again until I see it on my calendar. If I don’t tell you otherwise, assume we’re still on.
