I won't get into all of the details but they range from serious to I-guess-my-boss-doesn't-know-that-most/all-of-us-do-this.

I don't think I'm going to get fired but they have grounds. I will be very, very surprised if I don't get a verbal warning or even a written warning. He mentioned something about re-training. I felt like crying but I held it together.

Getting fired is never good but if someone gets fired from this hospital system, I've heard that you are blackballed. This is the #1 employer in my region! I would quit if I could but finances and the proven "employers like to hire people who are currently employed" is keeping me from putting in two weeks right now.

I decided a few weeks ago that I need to get on the ball and start job hunting. I haven't liked this job basically since I started and decided a few weeks ago to start looking and have been here and there. I have to kick into high gear now.

I'm really sick of going through these things in my jobs. I don't want to be winning awards at any job but I don't want the meetings, feeling so embarrassed around managers, fearing getting fired, quitting under duress, etc. ]]>

<![CDATA[what's yo job?]]> http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=191087&goto=newpost Thu, 05 Apr 2018 02:25:35 GMT I was just curious, are some jobs done more often by ADHDers? or types of job

I got a lot of people with ADHD at my work, legitimately

I'm in a building trade union, sheetmetal . We do all the ductwork and heating and cooling in buildings and rarely houses
along with any other sheetmetal in the building... what do you do?

maybe because we move around a lot, and aree at different places all the time is why ADHD is common in my field? ]]>

Finding an ideal career - Suggestions? http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=191082&goto=newpost Wed, 04 Apr 2018 13:34:10 GMT Hey all,

At 29 years old, I have finally been receiving help for severe anxiety and depression after having resigned from another job, and have been advised that I more than likely have ADHD (no formal diagnosis yet). It all makes sense - I am very fidgety/can't sit at a desk all day, become bored easily, find it difficult to remember specifics and have issues with anxiety. I have drifted from job to job, all of which I've absolutely hated (worked with great people but the job itself has been soul destroying). I have wondered for years "what the heck is wrong with me?? Why must I become so bored so quickly? why do I have such horrid anxiety over everything?" and have been criticized by my parents, family and boyfriend for jumping in to jobs and then resigning so quickly... so I am really glad to have been told what the root cause actually is so that I can go forward!

Due to anxiety I couldn't go to university so have been doing jobs like retail, administration, etc, but have always dreamed of going to university and having an actual career. But being so indecisive, I have absolutely no idea what to do and am very frustrated :(

Ideally, a career with variation and not being sat at a desk all day is for the best. I do enjoy being on my feet, am very "hands on" and was always immensely interested in medicine/dentistry but this would mean 5-10 years of not having an income. At 29 years old, I wouldn't want to put that pressure on my boyfriend.

So my next choice would be a degree in statistics. Careers that involve it seem to pay decent, but all careers that involve statistics feel as though they're all desk-jobs (e.g. actuary, risk management, etc) which would be an absolute nightmare.

Could you please advise on how you found a career that you enjoyed and could maintain? If anyone works in the field of mathematics or has suggestions on ideal careers, it would be hugely appreciated :) thanks. ]]>

Im a 24 year old woman, studying classical singing and opera. Ive been trying to sing (rightly said) every since I was 16, and have had over average many hurdles and failures on the way. I had many vocal technique problems for years, and problems with nervousness. Now I take Beta blockers before any audition or big concert, so that I can feel "in control" enough to perform. Otherwise, Im not on any meds other than supplements like Bacopa and St. Johns Wort.

The Point is:
Im now applying for my masters, which means auditions, and its hit me in the face: I feel like my brain is against me. I still feel so "not in control" when doing a performance, and I keep making silly mistakes in the music. It seems to happen out of nowhere. I work very hard and practice a lot, and still it seems like my "cognitive skills" related to the music just arent getting much better. And the worst is, everyone around me seems to be having a much easier time with the same tasks. I keep failing again and again. So un-expectedly as well. Even when Im confident for a performance, suddenly I make stupid musical mistakes and loose control of my technique, and its a mess. Its as if my brain just malfunctions! It feels as if Im just not getting better at certain skills I need as a performer.

Can anyone here relate? Do you have any advice? Thank you! ]]>

So I started a new job recently and according to management, I havent progressed well on the shop floor. Apparently Im no good with customers and dont fill shelves fast enough. So they decided to move me into the warehouse for a trial period to see if data entry is more my speed (its not). There are other jobs they could try to get me to do but Im pretty sure that I wont meet their standards.

I mean, Ill still give it an honest shot and Im grateful for the second chance. Its just that I wasnt doing as well as I thought I was and I think I need to start looking for a new job soon.

Its very disheartening. I cant really describe how I feel other than very bad.

I guess I just wanted to vent about it. ]]>
