Adult ADD?

Hmm.  I’ve been working through some issues, at work, at home, and everywhere else.  The biggest problem that I’ve been seeing is finishing things.  I’m GREAT at getting things started, great at looking at new technologies.  But finishing things?  Yeah, not so good.

I’ve been doing some research for Aidan because he shows some signs, but we’d decided it’s mostly being 12, mixed with unorganized kid and some anxiety thrown in to make it taste interesting.

In doing all of that, I have seen some quizes and things to watch for and truthfully, I’m a little scared that I might be totally ADD.  A lot of the symptoms are familiar, especially the one where you’re really crappy at finishing things.  Gee, that’s sounds only a little familiar.  It’d be nice to be able to blame my scatterbrains on something, you know what I mean?

So what do you do?  Take a magic pill and everything will be fine and dandy?  I”m not a big fan of drugs, I only take levothryoxine because my thryoid doesn’t produce shit and I can’t get out of bed unless I do.  Truthfully, I’m a lot more informed, but also – It might be nice to be able to take something and be able to keep my train of thought going, ya know?  It might be nice to be able to have a plan and stick to it, instead of getting distracted by the next shiny technology, or the new programming language, or the new server.  I have enough to contend with without adding more stuff that is not very well thought out and mostly done on the spur of the moment.

Plus, I’m hoping to hire someone in the very near future, granted, it’s only an intern, but I’ll take anyone.  It’d be nice to be able to function as a manager and continue to get work done.

Anyway, it’s time to clean the house 🙂  Hope you all had a good holiday.
