Hi. I am autistic and am wondering what other autistic people or people with similar cognitive difficulties do when there are too many things going on at once.
I am a freelancer and often have times where all of my clients want things at once. The emails start pouring in and I get very overwhelmed to the point where I get so confused that I can not think at all. This results in me getting less work done than I could if my brain were cooperating.
There are things I can do to feel better at the moment, but it all happens again when I need to start working again. I use project management software which helps a lot, but not enough.
I am wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to run a business while having extreme difficulty with business/client management, concentration, focus, confusion, and other daily annoyances related to having a brain that does not cooperate.
