I write software.

When things are moving along nicely and smoothly, everything is wonderful. I find myself in “the zone” and all is well.

Then, when I hit a roadblock, it all falls apart. My desk has dents in it from me slamming my hands down on it – my wedding ring has dented the surface of the desk. I curse, scream, and have actually hurt myself in the temper tantrums I have had over my work.

My wife hates it when I get like that – and I don’t blame her; but when the thing doesn’t do what it is supposed to do, over and over and over again, I blow my stack.

I’m sure it’s an ADHD thing, because it seems to fall hand-in-hand with the emotional sensitivity that I’ve been learning about.

What’s the solution? I honestly don’t know; but know this:

You are not alone.
