Navel gazing time! After a therapy session it came out that my ADHD makes me work in one of two modes: 1: gracefully working lightly on any number of projects 2: get borderline obsessed on one (pretty much being in the zone 24/7 for a month) and not be able to do meaningful work on another project until it's done. Both are overall productive, but I do not get to decide when I shift. And that being in the wrong mode makes me miserable. I can switch to mode 2 but it involves being incredibly frustrated until I get in the zone. This frustration is what really makes me miserable, not the difficulty or anything else. So yeah this is my excuse for doing billable hours this weekend instead of working on games.

I don’t think you shouldneed an excuse to do paying work... Also knowledge is power. This sounds like progress.

I can relate in so many ways. Given that you are working from home as a freelancer, you are able to choose freely when to work on which projects as long as you meet your obligations. This can mean making choices that are unconventional but fine. Especially when you're neurodiverse as you have to find a way of living with your unique brain.
