Paralysis of Will or, as it is sometimes called, Paralysis of ADHD or ADHD Paralysis, is more of a concept out there that we are learning about. There are a lot of people, adults mostly, with ADHD that have tasks they want to do and they know that they should do, but there is a “block” that won’t allow them to do it.

I’ve had a patient use the example of their dirty dishes. The dishes are piling up in their kitchen and they know they need to take care of them, they think the kitchen is disgusting. They go to do the dishes and they immediately switch their focus to something else.
