So, I think the usual story with ADHD is that it’s hard to read more than two lines. If something is boring, that can be sort of true for me but… I pick up books I don’t find boring and get sucked in for hours. And hours, and hours. And hours. Main culprits are fiction and tabletop, but I’ve even managed to get overly attached to a math book.
Does anyone else have trouble with binge reading in the same sense as binge watching? If you have a problem with binge watching, I’ll even take advice on managing that. It’s hard for me to stop once I’ve locked on to something and that can be a real time killer for me. Setting alarms and making sure everything important disrupts me with a loud notification is all I’ve got so far.
Side note: this also applies to projects and active things. I hear a lot about how hard it is to focus, but I have more trouble with the opposite, how to peel myself off of something that caught my interest when it’s no longer the time or place.
EDIT: in case I need to make this more meta, I really did lose work over this and the problem in more general terms is not being able to change tasks by importance. One more edit to add, reading is seen as desirable and there’s not as much of a time endpoint as there is on an episode, which is why it can get me detrimentally lost in time.
