ADHD at Work
I am ready to give up
I don’t know what to do anymore or where to turn. I am almost 50 years old and am about to lose my job (again), because I can’t seem to “pay attention to detail” no matter how hard I try.
I have both a therapist (LCSW), as well as a psychiatrist who has me on 25 mg of adderall but nothing seems to help. I have stayed late many, many nights trying to make sure that projects are perfect before I turn them in, and it still seems like everything I touch is a disaster.
I have to wonder what kind of a life I can possibly have if I can’t hold a job and support myself. And I am so tired of working ten times harder than everyone else and everything still being all wrong.
When I think about what lies ahead for me, I feel like I just want to give up.
