    My diagnosis coincided with being laid off from an office job that felt like prison to me. I fully feel your pain regarding finding the balance between fulfilling work, boredom and stress management. I almost feel like stress and dread become the motivational crutch that kept me functioning in a field that didn’t fit me. I’ve been struggling since then to set and follow a new path. In the mean time I’m doing jobs I find easy and stress free (for me that tends to be low-key customer service jobs and part time physical labor type jobs). I try to allow myself the space to explore possibilities while searching for a fit, but it feels like an impossibly long road. You’re not alone. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you. Limiting information shared with them and keeping plenty of distance are my two main go-to tactics. I 100% relate to the idealization and simultaneous disappointment.

    Thanks for this. That’s the kind of self-work I’m trying to settle into. I think you’re right I should detangle adhd and these particular difficulties with my family. 🙏🏾
