ADHD at Work
Newly diagnosed- re-evaluating work options - feedback?
Today is my first day on this website. I was diagnosed ADD on Friday, after losing my job a few weeks ago.
I have had and lost jobs due (in hindsight) to ADD in architecture and engineering. I am a licensed architect, and am considering starting my own practice, daunting though that is. I am scared to death of not having a stable income during this time, and am considering taking on a job that will pay the bills as long as necessary to establish myself. I have been thinking about jobs that are suitable for someone with ADD, and that pay a decent enough wage to fulfill this role. I may not be thinking clearly about this, but I have considered driving a truck for awhile. Is this crazy? Does anyone else have a similar situation? Any ideas about “infill” jobs for a professional? I just read an article on millsconsulting.com about full stop unemployment and the need to move forward just to get going again…
