ADHD at Work
I just don't want to work, period.
I’m so physically and emotionally exhausted. I’ve been struggling in every area of my life and I really want a break. I have such a difficult time committing to anything! When I start feeling anxious, upset, annoyed or can’t seem to articulate my thoughts and feelings, I just want to give up. My relationships suffer and I end up feeling even worse.
I’ve done okay with keeping jobs for the last 14 years but it was not easy! I’ve been treated with very little respect because I have made mistakes, not followed through on my job responsibilities, etc. I’ve always had a hard time with letting people know that I don’t understand how to do something - too prideful! Obviously that hasn’t helped me but its just the way I am. I always play nice and I believe people have abused that.
Anyhow, my concern at this time is that I feel extremely disconnected with my daughters, husband and just about everyone because I’m truly not happy on the inside. Having to go work stresses me out - I just hate it.
I’m at the point where I want to run away for it all but I would feel so guilty and look weak to my daughters.
It’s just so hard.
