Feeling Better…

Posted in ADHD, Posts by Renee, Progress at 3:06 am by bloggingawayadhd

OK, well after 3 or so days of feeling crappy, having a bad sleep schedule, and not meeting any of my goals, I think I’m back on track today. For the past few days, I haven’t even filled out my progress chart – I didn’t want to look at it and fill in zeros next to all of the goals!

Despite feeling well, I did something totally stupid that is typical “ADD” today. So, some friends and I are going to a condo in Miami for a little over a week next month. It’s for rent by owner, and the lady requires full payment up front. Since I’m the one in the group with a PayPal account, we decided that I would put the entire $1500 rental on my credit card, then everyone would pay me back. (Also, it’s a bonus for me since I was going to use my Amazon Visa and get a $25 gift certificate out of it from spending my “points”.) So, I logged onto PayPal, selected pay with Visa, took out my card to enter the credit card number, and clicked “Continue” on the form. I went ahead and completed payment, only to realize that it hadn’t asked for my card number at all. It used the default Visa that was in my account, which happened to be my debit card, and I just clicked through the form so fast, I didn’t read the details and see that’s what was going to happen.

So, since I just paid all of my bills this month, I didn’t have $1500 in my checking account, and making the payment on my Visa Debit card overdrafted my account. I had to call the lady, have her refund the payment, and go back through the whole process, using the right credit card this time. Luckily, the lady was really understanding, and it turned out OK. Now I just have to wait for bank business hours to see if they’ll charge me an overdraft fee even though the money was back in my account an hour later.

Ugh… but other than that, today has been a good day, and I’m about to sit down and get a bunch of work done. I just took my GABA supplement and my Omega-3s with dinner, so as long as I remember to take my multivitamin and exercise later, I’ll have met my goals for the day.

I’m just glad to be feeling like I’m not going crazy anymore!

    Update: Well, apparently PayPal notifies the bank right away that there is a refund on its way, but takes up to 3 days to deposit it!! The lady definitely hadn’t yet withdrawn the funds from PayPal into her checking account, so I don’t know what’s up with that.

    Good news is, the bank said that since they had notification that the refund was initiated before two other checks overdrafted today (!), that they would reimburse all of my overdraft expenses. I REALLY hope that none of those checks get bounce-fees or I will be really pissed.

    I mean, the whole thing is my fault, but I did everything in my power to fix it before any other checks went through. So my balance is positive, but my “available balance” is negative, which is why I have overdraft fees.

    Let’s hope the bank is nice again next time I call and does refund all of the overdraft fees as promised.

    Ugh, why couldn’t I have just read the checkout page carefully?? *head in hands*
