Thanks to all of you for these stories. I have been fired several times over the last 10 years. I’m on meds now, and working on behavioral changes that should help me in my next job, but I am having a hard time finding a job to prove my “new” self in my industry. Unfortunately, I can’t just tell everyone I’ve worked with or for over the last 20 years that I have ADHD and now am on meds and can provide much better work quality if only given the chance.
The firings have caused me a tremendous amount of shame, and anxiety. I’m always wondering, when I contact someone in my industry and ask for help in finding a position, if that person knows about any of my firings or just assumes I have been flighty.
If someone has cancer, depression, MS, etc they can be open about it in a lot of workplaces. Those of us with ADHD cannot, at least in my field and in my part of the country.REPORT ABUSE
