Lawyers with ADHD

Anyone else feeling the struggle of working from home during COVID-19? Not having the separation of work vs. home has been so rough.

i feel this. i get up at noon, because i stay up late for some stupid reason, and then it’s a cycle. i don’t immediately start work, i get anxious about it, but can’t bring myself to sit down and just do the damn thing. i’ve been at my new large firm a month and i do have job security, but it’s like i can’t bring myself to bill what i need to. i depend on a separation between work and home and living and working in a small apartment 24/7 is hard. i can’t tell if it’s just my ADHD / anxiety kicking in hardcore or if i’m just lazy.

Yes! I’ve been in this cycle too...it’s the worst. I will wake up around 8:30/9 but then can’t actually get myself to start work until late in the day and then I get distracted by something and stay up until 2/3am and then it starts allllll over again 😩 I’ve been trying to make one area of my apartment my “work space” and try to zone into work when I’m there, but it’s still so difficult. The anxiety is also so real! I feel like no one talks about how anxiety and ADHD go hand in hand.

Bye bye Accenture, I joined about a year ago as an experienced hire and have been on a project about 6 months out of 13 (50% chargeability). The leadership needs a program to help experienced hire to adjust in the company. Consulting, the "networking", PowerPoint making isn't just for me. I have a technical background and was losing my skills since I joined. Accenture is a great company and I'd advise anyone to leverage the countless training provided.
