I totally agree. One of the things I "vent" to my best friend and my therapist (two different people) that it is hard to function with ADHD in an ADHD unfriendly world. Everything is out to get our attention, and having trouble keeping our focus, it's non-stop "ooh shiny" or "SQUIRREL!" all the time!
lol, definitely agreed with Alyssa. Everything's so distracting! But, at the same time, technology has advanced in such a way that it can help people with ADHD, in my opinion. For example, all the reminders on my phone, the apps, calendar, etc... They're all a REAL lifesaver. I recommend if you're having trouble, try using all the capabilities of your phone. Now, I rarely forget anything that's important lol
For me, a big issue is the very item I'm using right now: the internet. I have to use it for work and it's so easy to open a new tab and go wandering somewhere else. Even at home it's a distraction so some evenings I will force myself to keep the computer turned off. Since the internet really got going when I was in college I half-jokingly ask older colleagues how people goofed off at work before the internet and they respond that there was a lot more time spent around the water cooler.
Yes I get what you mean I feel like I'm drinking from a fire hydrant, just flooded with choices, options, differences. It can paralyze me into not making a decision or not responding to something or someone just because I'm trying to choose. I;m trying to choose some career path but I'm torn: I'm trying to choose a cell phone thought I made a decision but this phone does this and that phone does that. I'm not so sure
