      In school being super unorganized from 1st grade to College realizing I can’t help but job hop even if I’m passionate how if the dishes ain’t done it feels like the depression winning zoning out when my loved ones are passionately talking to me but I’m on medication now and feel so much more confident in my existence and placement but if I mess my meds up I feel like a fish with fish memory it’s an adhd and anxiety so I feel majorly frightened also but medication is my one aid when it comes to atleast doing a smigget above the no effort or consistency whatsoever also how vulnerable I feel to stability

      i realized when i couldn’t get tasks done efficiently like i used to, i kept forgetting things immediately, couldn’t talk in a way that people could understand, it felt alienating. i would lose track of time, and still do. i need timers set every 15 minutes if i want to get anything done because i forget and get distracted so much.

        @BeeOy I’m gonna try the 15 minute timer thing. Thank you for your answer!

      I knew there was something happening bc I was having severe memory issues and I couldn’t really talk (would blur words together) and couldn’t think straight. I always blamed the memory issue on major depression (bc it is a symptom) but it got so severe I knew it had to be something else. Mine got really bad during quarantine and I know a few other ppl who’ve had this experience as well. I was an A student before now I can’t do what I used to be able to. Avoid TikTok!! it’s like feeding adhd lmao. Eat healthy too food helps with everything and sleep well. Ofc it’s not medication but ppl really underestimate how much of an impact doing these things can make!

        @IceCup Lol I also lost like 5 water bottles in highschool and am extremely disorganized. I have no sense of time. 3 hours can feel like 30 minutes. I constantly forget my hat for work at home, I zone out too much, interrupt ppl by accident, can’t focus on one hobby/passion and need to try different things, get distracted easily, have a hard time keeping in touch w friends/family

      I realized this already in elementary school, it was so hard for me to concentrate, everything would distract me and I was busy with everything but school. That's why the teacher would take me out of class a lot, and call my parents to school to tell them that I wasn't focused and that it also affected my grades. They took me for a diagnosis and indeed found out that I have ADHD and since then I have been taking Ritalin which helps me a lot. My grades returned to normal, I was able to concentrate and I even got accepted to the college I wanted later in life.
