This also may be related to my depression, but does anyone else create a large mess from a project or something they were doing and leave it sit for months and then all of a sudden hyperfixate on finishing it/cleaning it up for 3 hours? My laundry/bedroom is my largest example of this lol

      I do this all the time. It’s better since I got diagnosed and treated for ADHD.

      Yup, very much so, I have a pile of clothes I was half way though folding, my paint supplies, and some fabric from a sowing project and the second I get motivated it will be spotless in my room

        @Shroom_Fairy literally just happened to me today. can't be bothered to pick it up until forced to, then i will go above and beyond and clean for hours.

          @theo.sophical I'm the opposite, if I'm reminded or told to do anything I'm de motivated, if I decide to do something on my own I'm un stop able, for a small amount of time that is

      I very much do this lol... my bedroom is usually proof of this. For me it is both adhd and depression, which sucks.

      God I know I do. I do it with my art, little models of stuff I hyperfixate on, I leave books everywhere around my room with a bookmark somewhere past page 1 in each of them... 😅

        @Wyrmie literally i will start my laundry then leave it around my room and not fold it for weeks then have to reclean it anyway so i spend three house cleaning thr laundry up and every other mess in my room from my little bouts of fixation and then spend 3 hours to have a clean room... just for my laundry to be done and get thrown on my floor again... i think i have a problem...

          @theo.sophical i personally dont see it as a problem. Tasks like that that appear small to neurotypicals can be seen as huge ones for us. I do the same thing. I have like so much laundry to do currently its not even funny. I still have to hang up from when in washed them months ago, I have a pile on my floor that I pick certain items from that I deem "clean-enough" to wear out in public, and my laundry basket is literally overflowing onto the ground. Finding the energy to deal with it is really hard most days, but I like to think of myself being one step closer to actually getting it done if I at least acknowledge its something I should probably do sometime during my free time
