ADHD in Women
Gaining Control over my life
I have known I have ADD for years and I have just let things get out of control in my life. My house is a mess, I have no organization of hardly anything. I am desperate to get control of all of this chaos. It is very depressing and because I am depressed I tend to just lay around and get nothing done. It is just so overwhelming I do not even know where to begin. I think my first order of business is to get my house at least picked up and cleaned. How should I begin this? I have found that when I start to pick up my house I do not have enough room or places to put things up. So I get frustrated and then I just quit. What should I do? Do I just start by cleaning out areas of my house, you know closets and drawers and the such and not worry so much about cleaning the house but rather organizing areas first? Or should I clean up the house and just poke things anywhere I can find space and worry about organization later? I have tried Flylady but that just does not work for me. I work for the school system so I have time off here and there but I still consider myself as working full-time. Any help anyone can offer me would be appreciated. I just need a beginning point. I know I cannot get everything done in one day or even one weekend but I would like to get a starting point to begin.
