I am a smart person but my "disease" makes it so I can't do anything work-related. I just can't force my body to do it. I always need help to do work usually.
That is why we have this word called discipline. Everyone no matter what the age always would rather do something fun instead of what they consider boring work. Even clinically depressed people can focus and concentrate on the work at hand even when everything in them is shouting to just shut down and give up.
Either you and/or your doctor have brainwashed you into thinking that your "disease" is the cause of your not wanting to work. Sorry, I don't buy it, and neither would a smart employer. You can force your body to work, and refocus on the job at hand. Many more people with much more serious handicaps than you have had success doing so.
You just need to retrain/disclipine your body to concentrate on the work at hand. You also have to retrain your mind to think and believe that yes I can focus on and do the job at hand. Yes, I can finish my work without going to the ATS board.
If your work is that bad that you feel like you need to constantly do something fun, then man you need to get a new job. Nobody is going to do well at a job they hate, or think is tremendously boring.
Let me guess, your perfect job would be getting paid to moderate the ATS boards. Unfortunatly we all can't have very fun jobs. Then again neither should we have to feel trapped at a very boring, tedious job either. The more fun you think your job is, the easier it will be for you to concentrate.
