Most of the people that I have come across have similar to ADHD symptoms ie not meeting deadlines, not focused, multi-tasking etc

Hey everyone !

Need help to understand this.

Basic: 10,00,000
HRA: 6,00,000

HRA excemption Calc:
1. Provided by Company: 6,00,000
2. 40% of Basic: 4,00,000
3. Rent - 10% of Basic: Rent- 1,00,000

For tax exception, min of these will be considered.

Ques: Can I claim my entire HRA exemption of 4,00,000 (as per option 2) by showing annual rent of 5,00,000 ?
P.S.- I am staying at home with my parents and I can transfer the rent to my parents.

Thanks in advance.


Headhunter has reached out to me with 2 opportunities, one with a megafund and another for a small fund I've never heard of and wouldn't be interested in joining. The headhunter is pushing me to consider the small fund. Can be clear with the headhunter that don't want to proceed with the small fund, or does that risk the headhunter not connecting me with the megafund?

Would you recommend?

I've always had trouble with things like attention, focusing, and feeling constantly overwhelmed. I started to feel hopeless, feeling burnt out (even worse than my old job). I spend hours diverted when I know I should get work done. I decided to get an evaluation after learning a lot more about ADHD. I was diagnosed as Primarily Inattentive and they are starting me on meds immediately. Will things get better from here? Will, I finally become a productive human being? Should I tell my manager?


How much would a 30 day supply of Vyvanse (30mg) cost me after insurance? I know this is going to vary by plan but I'm still curious as to know how expensive of a medication this is.

My pharmacy informed me that the insurance will not cover without authorization from the psych. My psych was wary about this & instead suggested Ritalin during my session. He mentioned that insurance companies want us to first try Ritalin because they are generally cheaper. How much truth is there to this? Thanks!

anyone been on adderall for a while and it just stopped working? i’m getting distracted more easily than before and losing motivation, even for things i want to do. while this may be partially due to anxiety/depression, i’m wondering if anyone has switched meds/doses after being on adderall for a long time and found it to be a big help.


Anyone really struggle with lectures? I find it challenging to do online trainings when I have to listen to an hour of a recording of someone talking over a PPT.

I always end up 2x speed, which helps, but even then I manage to get distracted. I find it way more efficient to read materials on my own.

If anyone has strategies to make things like this more bearable I’m all ears! 🙏🏼

Has anyone else stumbled upon researching the “highly sensitive” personality trait and seen how it could explain a lot of their ADHD symptoms? I did and I think it explains a lot.

Have any of you asked for accommodations while interviewing? Would you recommend it? (I’m currently going through MBB recruiting and my friend has advised me to request extra time or breaks during interviews but idk if it’s worth it or a potential liability?)


Diagnosed recently at 30. Want to stay away from real meds. Going to try this and see if it works.
