ADHD at Work
What do I wanna be when I grow up?
I am recently unemployed again. As a child I was diagnosed with ADD and put on medication which (I) never took because I always believed that there is nothing wrong with ME! During my elementary years I was bullied and socially promoted* I managed to graduate with F’s & D’ s* yay me! I went on to high school and became a nobody(invisible) so I created drama eventually dropping out after spending 4 lovely years and only earned enough credits to be a freshman. I thought myself how to read by reading the ads on the train and obtaining my GED in 2009 taught me how to count.oh I forgot to mention I graduated elementary school in 1995.
~Just a little history~ by now you probably figured out the side effects of MY ADHD. If not stay tuned.
I know what I wanna say but when I say it but when I say it people OR the person looks like they wanna say ° NO THE F*** you didn’t just say that° and I’m like yea what’s WRONG!? I can’t tell what’s appropriate to say and what’s not. Well need I say that’s why I’m unemployed. I love to TALK. Well AFTER spending the last 5 years offending people I wanna be different. Do something meaningful with this energy but I just don’t know what I wanna be when I grow up career wise that is.
Any advise for this talkative highly energised Woman?
