Like others have said, I become so hyperfocused that I don’t eat or drink. I don’t work outside the home. If I start a project that I really enjoy after I get the grandkids off to school, I won’t move until my alarm goes off to pick them up. That’s when I realize how much time has passed, and that I haven’t managed to get anything else done. Sometimes even then, after the kids come home I am right back to what I was doing. I have sometime beco.e depressed due to the guilt I feel when other things are neglected.
