Hi there,

I can relate. I am 37 years old and still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up… I too have had many different types of jobs over the years. I would usually get bored with them after a while then move on to something else. I have been to college twice and never finished. That is a huge regret for me, even though I really struggled and failed some courses. At the time, I did not know I had ADD. I wasn’t diagnosed until I was 31 years old.

Anyway, I am in a career now that pays well and has job security (it’s an essential service type job). The problem is, I am bored with it. I pretty much have to stick it out, since I have a huge mortgage and a family to take care of. I feel guilty talking about “not feeling fulfilled” in my career, being that so many people are unemployed where I live.

I would love to be self employed but I haven’t quite figured out what I am good at? I would love to get up in the morning and feel excited about going to work.

I don’t know if any of this helps? The career things seems to be a common thing with all us ADD’ers as I am finding out. The unsupportive non-ADD people in my life just don’t get it.
