Wow, most of the comments seem very familiar…

I can waste hours a day on youtube, netflix, etc.

I also work mainly from home now and have had to work on providing some structure to be able to get things done. Some success with pomodoro type app “Productivity Challenge” it mainly reminds me that time is passing so at least I can break out of it after 30-60 minutes instead of more…

It seems to help to commit to just work on something for 25 minutes or even less.

@Kathy47 Depression is not good…and needs to be taken care of before ADD, at least in my own personal experience…it is one thing to not be able to do boring things vs not being able to anything…

Depression, Anxiety, ADD were the order that I was able to get diagnosed, attempt meds and finally get something working. Along the way CBT was somewhat helpful, mainly to be self-aware of my own moods/symptoms, also to follow advice on asking for med changes.

Still working on the ADD!
