      I was terminated from a good paying job a year ago,I can’t seem to get over it. I was diagnosed with adult ADHD 6 months before being fired. I worked really hard to over come issues like being late to work and on demand production. I felt burned after still being fired even though I had shown a lot of improvement. I have a job now that lacks any kind of structure. It’s causing me all kinds of emotional pain and anxiety. I’ve been at the job for a little over a month, but I can’t seem to get started. I think management is starting to realize something is wrong…

      Don’t know what to do.. I feel no confidence in myself and have the same issues I did at the last job. I feel like just giving up.
