Regarding ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Housecleaning
Okay, so, I JUST realized something while vacuuming the living room:
For some odd, reason, it turns out my brain LIKES vacuuming. I enjoy the movements of pushing and pulling, the white noise sound, the crunch of dirt and crud being whirled up. It somehow relaxes me. I find it strange. One would assume the exact opposite.
The thing is, see, the ADHD and executive dysfunction issues prevents me from completely finishing a task properly. I’ll think I’ve done just fine, and then husband will come home and vacuum again because he has eagle eyes and I can’t see a spot of dirt right in front of me. Sometimes I wonder if setting a timer and vacuuming until it dings is a good idea. And yet I still believe that it won’t be enough. That I won’t be enough. I am absolutely terrible at housecleaning. I will start organizing, then wander off because I thought of another task, and so on. I should use my phone to set an alarm and change the sound every so often so I don’t get used to it.
@actuallyadhd, what does J. think? I feel like we’ve discussed stuff like this.
