Tourette's Syndrome and ADHD
ADHD & WORK
I am so happy to be able to relate with people that just like me, are struggling with ADHD. I am a 29 year old female and got diagnosed with ADHD two years ago. Even though I am relieved to have finally put a ‘name’ to what I have, it doesn’t give me self-esteem. My biggest barrier with ADHD is that I am terrified of applying for jobs. I worked as an administrative assistant which I loved but it was impossible for me to stay focus, respect deadlines, remember all the tasks I had to do, priorities and the list goes on. So I got fired. I am now taking Concerta but the fear of getting fired again scares me. I have anxiety just thinking about applying for jobs. Does anyone else feels the same way as I do?
