I hate what I do and am working to switch service lines. In the meantime, I am struggling to care at all about my daily work (and if I don’t care, it’s hard to focus). Any advice?

Since you're still employed at your old line of work, I would advise you to make the most out of the time you have left there. Find something small that is still a duty you have to perform, and start from there. The huge tasks that seem unattainable can come afterwards.

Dealt with this so much at the last job I was at that I had to leave. It's so difficult to apply yourself to something you don't care about with ADHD it's ridiculous. I would try to get your brain to think about it as a step towards a reward. Essentially bribe yourself with things you do like so that getting through the work day is usual.

I've been there, and it sucks. What worked for me was breaking down my work into smaller tasks and "nuggets" and focusing on doing those. It helped me concentrate more and get distracted less. I know it's hard, but keep your eye on the prize and remember - you won't be able to successfully change service lines if you have poor performance where you are now.

Which service line?

Whew this group is a relief to find. No one at my job knows I have ADHD, and I only have one other friend with it. I manage a team of people and the stress of checking, double checking, and triple-checking everything to make sure I'm not forgetting anything or behind on anything is insane. I've kind of got the hang of keeping focus during work hours, but I'm just constantly on edge that someone will notice or I'll start falling behind.

If anyone is thinking about going on flex time, I would highly recommend it. It might not work for everyone, but my experience has been a positive one. I took a 20% pay cut along with 20% reduced hours. I am able to support my family with that income and my firm respects my limited hours, but I still need to plan to make sure I can complete tasks in my reduced hours too. Anyways, if you like what you do, but don’t like the long hours and can take a pay cut, I would do it.

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.
