I try to come up with things to do, but my own repsonse to each idea is "Why should i do that? Even if i do nobody will care so why even start? Even if i learn something new i will never use it in my current job and by the time i do i will have forgotten it."
Continuing with this line of thought im not so sure that i dont feel the same way about my life outside of work? Ive been asking myself if ive ever really enjoyed anything. Im sure i have, but those things are fleeting or are few and far between.
I think when my mind isnt busy i just have way too much time to think and thats where i get in trouble, but how in the world am i supposed to keep my mind constantly busy? Is this ADD at all?
Just got an email. Something to keep me busy for a few minutes or if im lucky an hour or so.
Yup, from what I have learned about ADD. Being bored is classic. Sure everyone gets bored. But how often and what to do about it?
It's been noted people with ADD are subconsciously seeking ways to stimulate their
pre-frontal cortex by a variety of activities.
Some are not so good activities.
At least that's my understanding.
I think you are doing pretty good at least acknowledging this aspect and looking for answers.
I know of some people who are so not aware why they do things and they wonder why they have things so hard...
learning about all this stuff has been such an eye opener
keep up the good work!! take the good times when they're there!
