Are there any work accommodations or benefits that you have at your company that help you to be productive with your ADHD? For example, having your desk away from foot traffic? What about those who work from home? Trying to figure out what might be helpful accommodations for those of us who are neuro spicy.

When I was in the office, living in a cubicle. There were a few things that I would do to be more productive
• on my breaks I would walk outside
• I use a timer and work in sessions of 30-45 mins to prevent "side quests"
• I would wear noise canceling headphones and listen to binaural beats.
I also set up my home office to be as close to my work office as possible (no cubicle) and use the same productivity tactics.

But now "that you know you will be distracted" on your way to complete mission you can lookout for the distraction stop yourself and regroup. You won't catch yourself everytime but enough to keep moving forward.

I have my own (small) office so I am able to close my door when I need to focus and avoid distractions. I'm not sure how I'd be if I had to work from home. I'd probably struggle with that, since there's less structure and so much to pull your attention away.

Thank you!

I try to always organize my desk to lessen the possibility of being distracted. I also put my phone in a DND mode. That's all for me.

Hi everyone,

I've been aware of my ADHD for the last few years after having an initial consult but only recently began treatment at the beginning of this year. I joined a new organization and the start up environment had me feeling like I needed to be the "best" version of myself. Now, I feel completely overwhelmed. My company knows I can handle it, and get stuff done so they kept piling on more and now I'm so burned out, there's no salvaging it. Can anyone else relate?
