    I’m sorry you’re going through all of that. I really relate to so much of what you’ve shared. Being out of work myself has been such a struggle. You should be proud that you had a successful career and likely have marketable talent. Not everyone can say that. Not sure if it’s possible but maybe if you look at the tiny studio as if you are a twentysomething in the sense that you’re embarking on a fresh new stage of life where anything is possible…finding activities that make you happy, and going to meet up like events where you could make new friends…I know it might sound like malarkey but just like others have noted it’s easier to try to help others than help ourselves… good luck getting yourself off the ground!

    It’s taken me a while to contribute bc my jaw has been on the FLOOR! I’m 50 years old, diagnosed just a couple of years ago which helped me piece together all the issues but also mourn for the years I’ve lost in not formally knowing I had ADD although I suspected. After reaching and watching webinars & hearing all primary, secondary, tertiary etc impact of the blockage, I couldn’t relate more to the insecurity, social anxiety, EVERYTHING. And now to read that there are other people facing the challenges of self-sabotaging I’m overwhelmed. In my case, I truly can not get a grip on doing things I do not understand. I do not know how to start or end assignments. I’m currently consulting and looking for full-time work which is so hard as someone with ADD. I spend countless hours turning my wheels and not making any progress and suddenly the day is over . I’m constantly talking to myself to get a grip but sadly I can not. I am on meds which is great but as you know doesn’t rid you of the disease. And as time goes on the med impact has dissipated. Any advice? Words of encouragement? Virtual highfives?!:)
