It sounds like he has never found the right employment fit for him. When you’re really into what you’re doing at work, you perform better and people want to keep you around. I have a family member with ADHD that struggled to stay employed for probably 20 years. He has now had the same job for 8-10 years, because he is passionate about the work he’s doing.

Can your husband work with an employment agency to determine his aptitudes and explore other career choices?

Is Your Job Right for You?
