Here’s where ADHD comes into the picture: I CANNOT WORK AT A TABLE OR DESK. Not when doing mental work anyway.
If I can’t control my work conditions, I can’t stop thinking about the conditions. Flashback to me in grade school, stomach aching at dissatisfaction with the overhead lighting, which overstimulated me to an uncomfortable point. Or when I didn’t like the chairs in the classroom…argghhh…or at my old advertising job where I kept the light in my office off all day and would listen to music on headphones, and get a crap ton of work done…until my idiot co-workerse would walk by, see the light off, and go “OH, HERE, LET ME TURN YOUR LIGHT ON FOR YOU!” as though I “forgotten” to turn it on…
I think it finally got fixed today and before I headed out for the day I was able to complete a few tasks IN MY BED on my laptop. I get so much work done in my bed it’s unbelievable. And for weeks that option has been unavailable to me.
At work, at my desk? I struggle, quite frankly, to stay on task.
WHAT A RELIEF.
For the first time in weeks I’m looking forward to working all weekend on my projects that I’m behind on. Good part about working in bed is the cats and dog that will certainly join me and snooze while I type.
