How is the title so woefully accurate. I've struggled with ADHD for nearly 30 years now and that's so accurate it-SQUIRREL.
My Brain Is A Stick Of Butter
A downloadable game
My Brain is a Stick of Butter is a solo tabletop roleplaying game about living a week with ADHD and how hard it can be to balance all of the tasks life expects you to complete. It takes about 20 minutes to play, at which point you can step out of the game world and back into your real life.
This is a very personal game about my experience in life, so I thank you very much for checking it out. If you end up playing it, I'd love to see your playsheet! If you feel up for it, you could send it to me on twitter, @adamebell
Go about your days trying to do your job, maintain your social relationships, get all your chores done, and find time to enjoy yourself. You might not get everything done that you want to this week, but that's the way it usually shakes out anyway.
To play, you'll need the .pdf, a deck of cards, a single six-sided die, a pencil, and a copy of the the playsheet (either print the one here or use the Online Playsheet in Google Slides).

This pretty much nails it, well done.
Maybe a bit unrealistic to have complete agency over when to go to sleep, I might have to add some house rules for that :)
As someone who also has ADHD, Thank you....Life definitely is no walk in the park with it.
Using a die to represent the "restricts a person’s agency when it comes to choosing where to apply attention" is a great idea! I really liked your game and i do think its illustrative, thank you!
