I am going to see me doctor next week to plead my case and try and get some meds for it ASAP. I am truly at the end of my rope with this crap. I have had to file with a disability at work and have had accommodations put into place.
If you didnt have a diagnosis yet, what reasons did you have to give to request accommodations? Was this a formal request with Human Resources?

Who all knows about your struggles at work?

I always caution people about ever revealing their adhd at work. In the US they can still fire you.
