Smile Hello!

Hello everyone!

I wanted to just say hello as a new member of the forum, its nice to see all of the people who have/had/or know someone with add (and its other "wonderful" associates) and i hope to contribute somthing useful (and not useless) to the forum.

i'm a 23 year old guy, who lives in a fairly large community, I work for a medium size communications company that specializes in inbound customer service, and altho I enjoy my job, my disorder has caused a huge problem with my job, and i am pretty close to being "let go". I know i we are covered under the ADA law, but how would i go about using that to help my situation, i enjoy my job and i need my medical insurance that it gives me (obivously,enough said) but i am at a loss where to start..



Any advice?

Mike.

Hi Mike and welcome to the forums! Sorry you're having a problem at work. Do they know you have ADD? Have you discussed it with your supervisors? Have they made any accomodations for you once you discussed it with them? Or, are they close to letting you go because of performance issues, without any knowledge of your ADD?

This really isnt the area of the forum to discuss work related issues, so once you respond to this, I will move this thread to the appropriate forum. Once again, welcome to the ADD Forums!
