Ask HN: How do ADHD people cope on here?

I love HN. I check it out basically for hours every day, for the past 5 years or so.

But, HN is utter hell too… it’s worse than my addiction to The Guardian.

I see so many topics I’m interested in, so many cool projects, so I bookmark them. Then I see more and bookmark them too. There’s a never ending number of things I bookmark.

But the constant reality is that I will never ever be able to do all the things in my brain. It’s a severely frustrating and depressing fact I feel faced with every day. A world of highs and disappointment.

But I’m totally addicted because there’s just so much new.

Anyone else with ADHD feel this way or have a healthier outlook about HN?
