How do I fight this constant need for something new, for kicks?
I’m 39 years and got diagnosed with ADHD three years ago.
One of the most challenging things in my life is the constant need for kicks and inputs. Those things keep me going.
But it really makes it hard for me to have an even mood and to not get bored.
Last week I started a new part-time job in the costumer service area, a job I can do well and like. The job is in Northern Denmark and I live in southern Sweden so I have about 2 hours commuting-time each way.
But at home I have my own business as a dog walker which I now need to give up on as the clients get fever and fever ( But l love the job and meeting the dogs everyday and never ever felt bored with this job). So therefore I took this job in Denmark. My first days at my new job was great, many new things to pay attention to, new people to get to know and so on. It’s abroad too so who wouldn’t love the job??
I have to keep my attentionlevel on alert all the time so that I don’t do mistakes, which of course makes me incredible tired.
But now it’s Monday and the honeymoon already seems to be over and I have absolutely no inspiration for going to my job. Sitting on the bus and wish to quit the job and do something else instead.
At home I have lots of fun things going on, writing on a book and am studying Japanese part-time at the Uni.
And I guess this one reason why I would prefer to quit my new job and stay at home instead.
So how am I going to beat this constant need for new input? How am I’ m going to survive this?
