same here. started hanging doors last week...3 out of 5 done, then lost interest and tools just got pushed in to corners while i went fishing and hillwalking
sitting now looking across and the tools have been joined by walking gear and fishing gear and i cant get my head around doing anything about it lol....
main thing though, is that im still moving forward and the things im doing when going off on tangents are mostly healthy for mind, body and soul.
we'll get there eventually  :thumbup:

re: the 4 f's...ive started listening to a podcast made by a young couple. she has cptsd.
after the introcuctions in episode 1 she goes in to talking about the 4 f's and it was really interesting. i have to listen to everything a few times as my mind wanders away on tangents. dissociating, perhaps
if you have podcast listening time all the episodes are here
