I have a speech impediment and can't do presentations very well; my employees think this counts as preferential treatment. I would LOVE to be rid of this but it's an actual disability and I don't think anyone really understands that

I've worked with a lot of teenagers over the years who had speech irregularities (I prefer to think of it that way). The main thing I've noticed that ALL of them have in common? They think it's a much bigger issue to others than it actually is. Of course they are going to stutter more if they are super nervous that everyone will judge them harshly. Just trying your best to roll with it is likely to go a long way towards helping you feel more comfortable and that confidence really shines through when you have a presentation to make. Just a thought.

Sorry to hear that you are going through this. Have you tried to educate your employees on your speech impediment and why it is a disability? It sounds like they might benefit from learning about it.

I am so sorry you have to go through this. However, if they are your employees it would be good for you to sit down with them and set the record straight. Sometimes we can be unempathetic out of ignorance and that may be happening to you.

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.

Feeling so low. I feel like I was dumped by my therapist. We had a few sessions but in my last session he said I don’t have anything too bad going on. I’m going through challenges that immigrants usually go through. There is no clinical need to continue. It was a bit shocking because 2 sessions ago he said I have PTSD. I was not expecting our sessions to end so abruptly and unexpectedly. I feel like therapy did more harm to me than help me. I keep questioning why the therapist didn’t like me

I have a prescription for Vyvanse. Even without Vyvanse, I have diagnosed generalized anxiety. On top of that, depression runs in my family. It’s not a diagnosis, but I suspect it’s there. Vyvanse certainly doesn’t help the anxiety, especially when I’m coming down off it for the day. I want to ask my doctors about an anti-anxiety/depression meds, but does anyone here take ADHD meds and those other meds at the same time? I’m worried about the drug interactions/potential physical effects. TIA.

But I have an anxious attachment style (if that’s not obvious) and my therapist is on leave right now, so I’m struggling. Do any of you have any advice?
