Asking myself extra hard today why I chose this career field. It is what I thought I should be good at but with ADHD, it really feels like it was not made for me. Anyone think of working in a less ambiguous, more structured environment?

I went to the other side and coming back to consulting .

Why did you come back?

I think about this all the time

Can you give some more examples? I’m not a consultant so don’t fully get it - is it just “find the problem. Solve the problem.” So the whole process is unclear?

Hey OP, I feel this. Hmu if you wanna chat.

- Reduce friction (eg much more likely to go to gym if it’s 5 mins away vs 10)

- Take an existing habit and add your new habit onto it

- Use chaos and stressful times to rethink practical decisions

- To break bad habits, add friction (eg phone & charger away at night)

Apparently I’m playing word games and nit picky. 🤦‍♀️

Is anyone on a low dose of Adderall or a similar stimulant, and do you find it helpful/effective?

When I was diagnosed (at 20 yo) I started on Adderall XR and my psychiatrist essentially took a “keep upping the dose until you feel side effects” approach, even though I still saw some benefits at a lower dose. I’m currently unmedicated and am somewhat hesitant to restart, but feel I could see some benefit and better stability with the help of medication.
