It is my first post about my ADHD problems in the doctoral program. My thesis director is an inflexible person and it has cost me a couple of wake-up calls and some ultimatums. I was diagnosed a year ago and although my tutorial committee knows it, we have not yet managed to understand each other. In the university there is no help for this type of cases and it is becoming increasingly difficult to move forward. I hope things improve, because the level of anxiety and stress increases with each report delivery meeting. What strategies could be followed to continue with the doctorate?
