I was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult.
It does make me feel less adulty.
Caffeine calms me and helps me focus.
But I still manage to hyperfocus and dissociate just too much.
I zone out.
I lose hours of time if I’m hyperfocused.
I lose hours of time if I dissociate.
Difference is the amount accomplished, usually.
As a designer I can get lots of work done with amazing attention to detail.
Or get nothing done and have NO IDEA how the time got away.
