I was advised never to disclose my condition to management. Find meds that work and double check your assignments at work. Organization and prioritization is key.. Helped me out tremendously.. I was almost fired 6 months ago because of a mistake that I made. That was a wake up call for me. I had to learn to work with my condition instead of against it. Because of my inattentiveness, I know important task require my full attention. Once completed, I put it to the side and review it again later on in the day just to make sure there are no mistakes.. I always catch at least one mistake but better me than my boss… Good luck
