ADHD at Work
Female Supervisors & Co-workers
I’m a 56 year old woman who was diagnosed with ADHD 2 years ago. Could this be why I have had such a terrible time with working in an office full of women or working under a female supervisor? I had this problem even in grade school. Do any other women have this problem? The female supervisors tend to bully me and the female co-workers seem to form cliques and I’m left out of them.
I know that I don’t think the same way that most women do. I’ve always gotten along better with boys as a child and with men as an adult. My favorite teachers were always men.
This has caused problems every place I’ve ever worked. My social skills aren’t the greatest but don’t understand women are so hostile towards me.
Is there some way to get along with other women that won’t compromise who I am? I like being a nerd but I don’t like being a scapegoat and/or social outcast!
