I have had a very interruption-heavy couple of weeks and I have been having trouble getting some important tasks finished.
And that has been hard on my brain.
Everyone has trouble rebounding from interruptions but for those of us with ADHD interruptions are even more dangerous. Not only does the effort to get back on task take even more energy than it does for the average person but there is also the risk of getting even more distracted in the process.
And then my brain likes to toss around the idea that the delay in finishing things is due to something I “should” have been able to account for.
Once upon a time, those “should” thoughts were loud and would completely derail me but since being medicated they mostly just cause me some static. I’m not fully aware of them but they just kind of clutter up part of my brain.
And, of course, if my brain is cluttered then it is hard for me to make any of my plans or tasks really clear.
Which makes it hard for me to do them.
Which compounds the initial problem that the interruptions caused.
Which is why I have decided to spend a good chunk of my Saturday working to clear the backlog and get my brain decluttered.
Saturdays are usually pretty straightforward days with fewer interruptions.
Let’s see how it goes.
