Hope it gets sorted for you soon,please keep us informed, it helps to let it all out .Cheers Jules
Thanks for your response, Jules.

Unfortunately, no. All I am trying to do at the moment is to get past the probation, and my type of work is rather self-contained. I wouldn't go higher up, as I believe it might poison my working relationships with these individuals, who are trying to help me, and whom I actually like.

They're just not doing it in a way that makes me feel better, rather than much worse. I'm already being very hard on myself, so too much criticism I find it difficult not to dwell on during the day. They're well-intentioned but don't seem to appreciate what I tell them about the disorder - I don't expect them to know much, but still.

Meds helped me immensely at uni, and for some perverse reason I find this job more difficult than uni! So I am hoping that upping my Concerta a notch or two will make it easier for me to juggle everything, as I was on the lowest dose before.

Hopefully, things will work out. I really appreciate your reply.
