We are all aware of what is going on the world. It is affecting absolutely everyone. So many people have had to change and adapt to what’s going on. We’ve had to adapt to the uncertainty of when kids will be back at school, or when people will be able to go back to work, and so many other things.
It is worrisome, to say the least. We don’t know what each day may bring.
Since I have ADHD, having a routine does help. When my kids were in school and daycare, I did have a decent routine going. But now that they’re home, my husband has had a promotion and his schedule has changed, and the state of the world at the moment, things are different. The routine that I had and had gotten used has completely been thrown out the window.
Like so many, I am faced with having to adapt, figure out a new routine, and sticking to it. Now, if you have ADHD, you know that this last bit, the “sticking to it” part, is like the most challenging thing. It is such a hard thing to on a “normal” day, when there isn’t all this craziness going around. It can be a challenge to adapt, get used, and stick to all the things going on.
Let’s be honest, most of us probably just want to stay hidden under the covers rather than face it all. It’s scary and stressful. We struggle daily with daily tasks and worry about so much before, and now we have that much more to struggle with and worry about.
But you know what? As scary as it is, as much as we have NO CLUE as to what we may be doing, somehow things are going to work out. We just have to adapt, take the situation as it is, and just take it one day at a time.
I wish I could say how and when things are going to get better. I don’t have a crystal ball, and I can’t see into the future. But I’d much rather believe that they will get better, and try to do what I can to make things a little easier for at least my family and I.
At the end of the day, no matter who you are, whether you have ADHD or not, all you can do is try to be positive, do what you can for you and your family, and take it one day at a time.
