Wow, I must say, I can relate. I have been fired from every job I have held and ended up settling for a low paying job that I can work out of my house. I agree, the issue is that ADD+ADHD are simply not understood and folks don’t like those that are non-conforming despite that we tend to be overachievers. They would rather have an employee that is more compliant and does not need any effort to get/understand. As an ADHD’er I am very well aware that others talk behind my back and socially shun me and yes, it hurts and always have.
But, you are not alone and we are all here (on this site)for each other. Be great if there was an industry that was more geared toward our skill sets! It would be great to be a team player with other folks who share the affliction, can you imagine what could be accomplished?
