Yeah, I put REST in all-caps because it’s the thing that many of us, but especially those of us with ADHD are bad at. Maybe this image that crossed my social media view after we had recorded this episode sounds familiar, but it is also literally what Aimée describes early in the episode.
The image reads: “Shoutout to everyone who simply cannot work at an even, steady pace, and instead vacillates between frenzied hyperworkmode and a near-catatonic state of existential dread and avoidance”
Sounds about right. We’re talking about trying to find a middle-ground that works for our ADHD.
