Ok, thanks for explaining. I understand better what you mean now.
It must be indeed overwelming to have such a waterfall going off in your brain.
Up to a certain point I understand what you mean to say. I don’t have autism and ADHD
so I will not pretend to know exactly how you feel but I can understand you up to a certain point.
In my case the idea’s stop comming once I understand that the posed question, objective, problem, has been dealth with in such a way that whoever poses the question, has the problem, or gives me the objective, is satisfied and feels happy. When I noticed that
the issue has been solved, ideas slowely start to slow down to the point they stop a few hours later. At that point a go into the mode that looks for the next challenge.
I’m sure if you wheren’t able to create a few filters in your lifetime (at your age) sofar
this means that it is not simple. However, just to trie to help in some way.
I don’t want to compare, but I find myself sometimes staying awake because of the small tiny waterfall in “my” head and it usually helps me if I start doing something that really needs ALL MY FOCUS to do. This is why I am a sports shooter. It sounds silly but I shoot .22 lr. pistol, single handed at 25 meters. Believe it or not, but this requires all your senses. This is not the rambo style “shoot everything” sport most people will believe it is. To shoot a .22 pistol at 25 M single handed requires all your focus. No room for other toughts.
I also shoot .22 lr at 50 M single handed, this even more requires your intire attention.
Same goes with metal detecting. There is a lot more to it than people think if you want to make those amazing finds like roman artifacts or celtic bronze axes, just to give you an example.
What I mean to say my friend:
If you are not able to create some filters of your own to help you to turn the waterfall into a gentle stream. Why not look for something you can do that requires all your sense.
I believe this could be a way to stop the triggers in your head all by themselves.
Maybe it is worth a try. A simple airpistol with 4,5 mm diabolos is not so expensive.
Put that target far enough, like at 15 or 20 M and try, TRULY TRY, to always keep
hitting the center of the target single handed… Maybe it suprises you how difficult it actually is
and maybe you slow down that mind of yours a bit this way.
