Can "get rid of" be used with gerunds? ▪︎ I'm always forgetting to do what I have to, so I think I need to get rid of [being] so forgettable.

Get rid of is only used with nouns, so you would have to say "Get rid of the habit of being..." The word you want is forgetful. If something is forgettable, it is easy to forget about it.
