Do any of you here share these behaviors? Im planning on talking to a medical professional about ADHD but just wanted to get reactions from you guys. Maybe these are ridiculous and not signs of ADHD: opening a kitchen cabinet and forgetting to close it, being hyper focused at work and not doing anything else like taking out the trash or doing the dishes, working on 5 things but never fully reviewing and perfecting one of them (everything is 80-90% complete)

Do these symptoms interfere with your life and have you done this your whole life?

If no, it could be a result of stress or fatigue.

I think most people are on a dopamine rollercoaster these days because of social media and increased expectations of desk work.

I’ve been adhd my whole life but symptoms have been much worse in recent couple of years. I believe it’s a combination of social media and working on a dozen different tasks in a day

Those things are all typical ADHD symptoms. I don’t know whether they are exclusive to ADHD or if it could be something else.

Sounds like me + getting up every 5 mins when I’m bored / can’t focus on the task that isn’t stimulating.

Anyone in a similar situation?

My group has been going into the office 3-4 days a week since mid-June. Our office is in Houston, which is dealing with a surge of Delta cases. Every week we get multiple emails about someone in the building testing positive for covid. I would like to work from home until cases either decrease or I’m able to get a booster (so maybe 6 weeks). I know my firm would say it’s ok but I think ppl in my group would judge me & it could hurt my image at the firm. Thoughts?

Y’all. The past 3 months I’ve been really going through it mentally it’s been up and down. I had my breaking point last night and it feels like today I can’t even think about work. I know where most of this is coming from. I recently started therapy about 2 months ago and It’s been really eye opening and helpful but also it’s been extremely hard to learn certain things and patterns about myself. I had a really bad breakdown last night. And curious how therapy has helped you

As a reminder, for anyone that is having trouble getting pregnant. There is a specific bowl called "Fertility Bowl".

However, don't hesitate to ask questions about fertility in this bowl but we try to differentiate the bowls as the fertility bowl focus is supporting each other through that process and this bowl is focused on celebrating pregnancy with each other.

It can be painful for some women struggling with infertility which is the purpose of two separate audiences.
