Just got let go from my job

I just got let go from my job today. It's kind of a relief because that job was too stressful anyways. Anyways, it has made me suspicious of myself once again. I wish I could afford an evaluation.

Several years ago I visited a psychologist, but it ended up a dead end. They thought I just wanted drugs. Now idk what to do with my life.

Get evaluated if you think you have adhd and forget the past. That was then, this is now.

I'm sorry. I agree with Sarah. Get an evaluation. Check around your city to see if there are clinics that only require you to pay on a sliding scale basis.

Re: Just got let go from my job

I'm so sorry to hear about your job. It sounds like you are looking on the bright side, knowing it was too stressful. As far as your concern about yourself, would it be possible to get an evaluation if you could find the right counselor? Have you talked with your doctor about your concerns? Usually, there are good places that work with your budget to get good support in almost any community. Wishing you the best in finding a fun job and finding a good counselor!

Tell the psychologist that if he/she isn't willing to perform a psychological evaluation for a legitimate disorder in the DSM, then perhaps he/she shouldn't be a psychologist.

Get a psychiatrist, psychologists can't even prescribe.

I would not rule out starting w/ your PCP if he/she is very capable and you have a deservedly high degree of trust in.

Re: Just got let go from my job

well.it might be worth getting an evaluation fr several reasons if you're young that is. That can help you to determine what might be the best jobs for you, and what sort of accomodations you might need
