Ted, I don’t understand what your “great grief” is, but it sounds like something that might be readily resolvable. I’d be happy to give you a little time to talk about it. If interested, please contact me through CognitiveTherapyCenter.net and mention “great grief.”
Sorry, but it’s late and I don’t think I wrote this as well as it could have been.
I am a 65 year old retired male. I have poor working memory and very poor executive function. After some painful false starts in careers, I landed in Mechanical Design Engineering which proved to be a great fit for me. The projects were challenging, fast paced, usually short termed and fit into my natural talents. I have a very high intellect. I have been one of those whose hyper focus turns on to a new interest or hobby until one day I lose interest then later find a new one. I had always hoped I would find The thing that really fit me one day. With my recent diagnosis, I realize that will not happen. I was lucky to end up with a long time marriage, two lovely grown children, and a career that worked for me.
I read through the article and look at the chart, I find it to be simplistic. Since it won’t cure me of ADHD, the interests will continue to come and go and though I thoroughly enjoy them while they last, I feel great grief as i realize that I will never find that one thing.
