Home Welcome to the ADDitude Forums For Adults Can't cope with jobs AT ALL! Reply To: Can't cope with jobs AT ALL!


My diagnosis coincided with being laid off from an office job that felt like prison to me. I fully feel your pain regarding finding the balance between fulfilling work, boredom and stress management. I almost feel like stress and dread become the motivational crutch that kept me functioning in a field that didn’t fit me. I’ve been struggling since then to set and follow a new path. In the mean time I’m doing jobs I find easy and stress free (for me that tends to be low-key customer service jobs and part time physical labor type jobs). I try to allow myself the space to explore possibilities while searching for a fit, but it feels like an impossibly long road. You’re not alone. Thanks for sharing.
