How do you handle low-energy or days when it's particularly hard to focus? I can't afford for my work to be inaccurate but I also can't just...not work.

Counter-intuitively, for me, a small amount of weed does wonders. Seems to shift my mindset from “I have to do this” to “Let’s do this 😎”. Not sure if this approach works well for everyone though

Agree with A1, tea has a different way of metabolizing. Also, exothermic and has antioxidant properties

Also tried Yerba Mate, gave me terrible headaches.

Suggest dont take weed, microdosing on psychedelics etc. There isnt enough empirical evidence.

If you’re doing creative work, maybe - I cannot tell.

Yesterday was a very low energy day for me. Sometimes music helps me, but not always. Music helps me get started. I just need 10 to 15 minutes of productivity to get me into the flow, and I'm off to the races. For a little while at least.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Also, I don't have medication for ADHD. Is anyone else trying to figure it out without medication?

How do you all deal with the guilt of leaving a comany/ team? I have been working at Microsoft for 1 year now, and seriously considering moving. I find the code base to be very legacy and I mostly work on obscure bugs that I spend so much time on, mostly due to navigating this large code base and not having much docs to refer to. Hence I find the job slightly unsatisfying, and that I could learn more elsewhere. However, I love the wlb, the team and company culture. The guilt stops my applying.

Happy Friday. Just a reminder of a few things:

- ADHD is a disability, but it’s not the end of the world
- give yourself a break. Your brain needs it more than you realize
- medication is not a cure-all treatment. Medication + diet + exercise + self-organization is the key.
- ADHD causes us to feel emotions stronger than the average person.
- failure is inevitable, but so is success. Act accordingly, and be kind and fair to yourself
- life is hard, but that’s… wait, what was I saying? 😂😎❤️
