A suggestion, Carrie. Consider that some things, like your marriage, require commitment. Others, such as working for the same company, don’t, and as an ADDer you may actually do well as a consultant, moving from company to company, and making a bigger contribution.

ADDers need to measure our success by different standards, and be clear whether a goal is actually useful. A simple one that comes to mind is ‘avoiding leaving to things until the last minute.’ If that’s how you work, and you deliver, then that’s how you work. My friends who are comic book writers and artists all leave their work till the last moment, going all night to finish an issue of the Simpsons or Spiderman. They just accept that’s how they work, and the courier comes at 8:30 in the morning, after they’ve pulled their all-nighter, to pick up the story boards or whatever.
