Well, the first week of the year might have been pretty rough, but it's gotten much better. On my ADD medication, I can get things done. That is the main difference between being on medication and not. I can actually get things started that before just seemed so overwhelming, and I can finish things that I was so bored with before, I just wasn't interested enough to get it done. The last few weeks, I've gotten more done around my house than I've been able to get done in a year. I've painted and cleaned, got more loads of laundry done then ever before, helped the kids get their rooms organized, cleaned and even made a trip to Hobby Lobby for fabric for some window treatments for their rooms.
It's been great, at home. At work, I've been able to get things done a lot easier and more efficiently, but everything else has been pretty much the same. Me with tons of work, and not able to spend much time doing much of anything else. It's hard being on the sidelines when my co-workers get to spend time talking about the fun they had over the weekend, or what they've been doing with their family.
If I didn't have so much work to do, I could tell them about my fun weekend in town, tell them about the movie we went and saw or that sort of thing. They've actually gotten so used to me having so much to do, they don't even ask me anymore about what I've done outside of work.
It's tough, but I enjoy my job and living in a small town, sometimes you don't have much to choose from job wise. I'm lucky to have the job I have and hopefully things will smooth out over the next couple of months, just got to chill for a while.
At least things ARE getting better, and I can tell that the medication is working. That's the most important thing at this point. But for now, I'm going to have to start nagging my hubbie to put up the Christmas decorations, to much dust in the shed for my allergies!
Til next time! And maybe I'll learn how to post some pictures on here in the mean time!
