Re: A few blurbs I found regarding Hyperfocus

I"m afraid that I'll start something, hyperfocus on it, and then lose interest in it or that I'm confusing something I hyperfocus on as a passion when it's not. If that makes any sense.
Yup 26, I am going back to school for another degree. Hopefully this one isn't on a whim and it is really what I'm made for . Incredibly hard for me to know what I should do.

Also incredibly hard for me to do the work and study before I get so close that fear grips me and forces me to study.

But the fear is getting weaker so my procrastination is getting stronger.

Who can believe fear was necessary to hold my ADD in check? Thats messed up I need to get better.
