Anyone ever get that "I need to be doing something else/ something better/ something more" feeling? I like my job and me and my partner are doing decent overall. I've had a lot of growth even though I don't have a degree but every few months I feel like I just HAVE to learn something to be better. I've thought of taking classes, or doing bootcamps, but it always feels like a desperate need vs something I really want.

The other problem is, even if I try it, ADHD makes me lose an agency to do anything that's just for me. If it's work related, I'm all in, but the second it's for my betterment, it won't get done. It takes me months to do basic things like change a toilet seat or mop the floors. I feel like attempting classes is a recipe for failure.

    Oh yeah. I have all these ideas of what I want to do to make our lives better and it just doesn't happen because I have no motivation to get it done. I hate working in a mess at work, but when I get home I have no motivation to do any cleaning whatsoever.

    I know all too well what you’re saying. I’ll do something for me for a little while then my ADHD gets in the way and I feel lazy even though I know I’m not. I’m the same way with work. I’ll bust my a$$ like crazy and if I have someone else to motivate me I can do anything. Hang in there message me anytime

      Exactly what I'm going through myself, definitely frustrating.
