Funny that when I don't have much to do, I don't get anything done.

The mental strength it takes me to just sit down and get stuff down when I don't have much to do is exhausting. I swear that I leave the office in such a better mood when I put in a ten hour day when I've been crazy busy the whole time than when I take a half day. It's so messed up. Of course, people hear that and think I'm crazy.

Welcome to the board, although I know you're not exactly happy to be here.

Ain't that the truth. I think admitting that it has come back to be a problem was one of the hardest things I've had to do this year. As I said before, it's like falling off the wagon.

I've been doing some research and learning more about it than ever before which is good. I've also ordered a few books from Amazon, one on just Adult ADD in general, the other on organization (which I direly need). I also let some of my superiors at work know that it has become a problem again and to work with me on improving my working/organizational behaviors. Not that they've been bad, in fact I don't think they really noticed but I know that I can do better. Gee, that sounds like me ten years ago when I faced this in high school. Crap, I'm regressing.
