Got a PS5 and now I can't focus

Hi, I just got back from a 2 week vacation and got a PS5 but I feel like I'm always distracted due to it...at least that's what I feel like, I did mess up my medication schedule as well during the vacation because some of it makes me sleepy.

But I've been back at work for a week and a half and I can't even do a single task (I'm exaggerating but I honestly cannot do over 2 hours of work a day)

As a side note, there isn't much to do at work to be honest but I'm afraid someone will realize I'm lying and get me fired

Also, my username is not my diagnosis, I'm on the bipolar spectrum and the medications that I stopped taking on time during my vacation were lamictal, cipralex, and olanzapine

Hey there. So, ya. I'm kind of wondering how the PS5 is messing with you during your work day. Do you work from home or are you up playing it and then tired so zoned out during the day? Just trying to get the idea down for what is going on.
