@JessMahler These are really good points. The spoon theory applies in many of these chronic illnesses, and I didn't think of that. "Executive dysfunction" is a new term to me! I'm glad there's a name for that concept, because I've struggled to describe those behaviors without falling into gross "diagnosing" (e.g., saying someone is "being ADHD" or "manic"). Not that I go around describing people's behavior through that lens often, but it occasionally comes up.
