ADHD at Work
Feeling very unsure of myself
I was only diagnosed a few short years ago with Attention Deficit Disorder not Hyperactive . I was diagnosed with a Auditory Processing/Visual Perception in High School… Two years ago I was laid off from my Data Entry job of 11 years. The last three were difficult because the job changed and I was receiving poor evaluations. .
When the Psychologist wrote his report after completing testing, he was not surprised that I was experiencing difficulties on the job based on my ADD and other motor and other non-verbal task
I currently do have a part-time less than 20 hours a week retail job. I have been receiving positive feedback from the Assistant Store Manager.. I don’t like the varying shifts every week… Plus, their aren’t any health benefits and the pay is minimum wage and always will be. I don’t drive so using a public buses has also made the commute difficult.
I do have computer skills but I am competing against candidates with Bachelor degrees for office work.
I don’t know what vocational avenues to pursue anymore… I basically want to throw in the towel and accept defeat…
