I’m wondering if you could continue to be a union organizer, but with a very small union? Do those even exist?

I love the idea of those with ADHD becoming counselors or coaches and helping others with ADHD. You first-hand knowledge of what it’s like to live with ADHD is invaluable to your clients. There are a ton of requirements to becoming a certified therapist though and I get how daunting it feels (I have looked into becoming a therapist several times over the last few years, after becoming a coach for parents of kids with ADHD and autism, because of my own son — it takes years unfortunately).

Other job ideas for those with ADHD:
