Overwhelmed with tasks, what do?
Hi everyone, so… I’ve been managing my ADHD fairly well so far, was just diagnosed early this year with Innatentive type, and things have been quite alright.
However, I started working last month and since then I’ve noticed my meds (Concerta 54mg, Wellbutrin) may not be doing much. I’ts a retail job, I’m second in command at the store, and take on quite a lot of responsibilities that my boss won’t take, since she deems them unimportant.
Today has been a crazy morning… I came to the store at 6:00am to oversee our telephone line instalation, and also to receive new merchandise. The instalation took longer than it should and is incomplete… the merchandise arrived late… It’s new merch so I HAVE to add it to our system as soon as I can. Our storage room is tiny and already crowded. We could have more room, but my boss refuses to listen to my suggestions, despite the fact that I’m the one with the most experience in organizing storage (worked at a retail warehouse previously). The new boxes can’t fit propperly anywhere, and that makes it harder to add the new merch, since the store (a clothes boutique) is already open to public.
I’m alone and will be until 2:00pm (it’s 11:am)... don’t even know where to start, I called my dad for help, and he gave me an excellent guideline, but I can’t get myself to apply it… it’s really hard for me to focus right now.
And to top it all of, I also have Essential Tremors, and my right arm is shaking like mad.
I’m frozen right now… can’t get myself to do anything, can’t decide where or how to start…
