H!
I’m so sorry to hear about the challenges you’ve been facing at work. It’s rare to find a job that you truly love, so I would recommend investigating all of your options before making the decision to leave.

Next, gather up some strategies to help you overcome some of the ADHD-related executive dysfunctions you mentioned:

You might consider cognitive behavioral therapy to address some of these:

I hope this helps and isn’t too overwhelming!
