Hello all,
I’m 51, found out I had ADD three years ago. When I read: ” Why do I push like hell at everything, or just not give a damn? Why do I snap at people? Why can’t I just take it easy? It’s either full on, or this is boring me into dust.” I – like many of you – really felt I could have written this. I’m in a job where, to have a decent work life balance, you need to make frequent big (and small) decisions under uncertainty, do a good enough job because “a good job” consumes your life, not sweat and become obsessed when you think that these decisions could have big adverse decisions. Being able to take things easy without going to the extreme of “not caring anymore” (on my own projects): this is what I need to learn ! Any ideas how?
