Inadequate sense of time

Other Names:
Loss of sense of time
Inability to organize time
Temporal illiteracy
Poor time-keeping
Elastic time structures
Undisciplined concepts of time
Some people, especially in certain developing cultures, do not structure time in ways which permit them to follow programmes which require actions at different stages. In the simplest case, medical prescriptions involving a course of treatment over a period of several months cannot be followed because the person forgets to take a pill after the first few days. This is especially important in the treatment of leprosy, for example, which requires regular doses over an extended period.
