My desk is right near the entrance and the kitchen in a big office floor (140+ people) with lots of foot traffic. My other colleagues don't seem to mind this. We do not have cubicles and when people move around they're visible at all times.
I have ADHD and when I see something moving from the corner of my eye, I find it almost irresistible to look. I used to have this problem with sounds but then I bought an active noise cancelling headphone and it solved the sound portion of my ADHD. Employers don't care about mental problems like ADHD, Autism Spectrum or even depression, they just gloss over them and leave you to deal with it. Even if they did care, I'd have to constantly ask new or prospective employers to deal with "my problems". I'd have to change the minds of managers, and upper management in some cases, which would be a bigger challenge than I'm willing to undertake.
Still, my current problem is that I'm constantly finding myself looking at people because they enter my field of vision. This usually disrupts my train of thought, I find myself shifting through tabs on my browser for a good five minutes after I'm disrupted.
I'm not saying people should stop going to the kitchen or going near me, I'm aware that that's just impossible. I also don't think that I can change places too easily and even if I do, it might just aggravate the problem, since I'd be facing towards the interior instead and much more movement would be visible to me.
Is there any way to limit my field of vision, I've looked at glasses with side shields but they don't seem to be for this purpose (still providing vision from the sides). I'm seriously thinking of buying a pair of horse blinders at this point. I'm aware that the idea is ridiculous but it's better than being unable to focus for more than fifteen minutes at a time or just burying my face into my screen.
I'm also aware that I'll be having similar problems wherever I may work. This leads me to believe I have to find a solution that will work everywhere. Has anyone encountered a similar problem and how did you solve it for good?
