I’ve tried using low background music that I like but not enough that I’ll listen to it intently! It’s helped me create a small distraction so my brain bounces between my work and that. I like to have some distractions I can “plan” since WFH has so many new distractions outside our control

Venting … So, this is apropos timing.

Three weeks ago they fired me for not meeting expectations. I only put in four weeks of actual project work, in the last month of a 9 month long engagement. UGH! I just want to work..

I suspect I have ADHD. I show multiple symptoms but am wondering about one specifically.until my promotion to manager I was considered high performer. now am stuck and can’t figure out how to progress. I am very good in executing and repeating what I know but have major issues in shaping an approach or identifying new opportunities. And if I don’t know how to continue I am just staring at my screen or finding distractions. Can this be related to ADHD or is it maybe just time for a career change?

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 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?
