I did that once when I was younger. I moved to nyc then moved back in with my parents for 3-4 months. I was embarrassed and depressed about it and felt it was such a huge deal at the time. I couldn’t find a job. Looking back.. I wish I wouldn’t have put so much pressure on myself. It really wasn’t that big of deal, I just made it out to be. And it was so short term if you look at the big picture. What’s the worst that can come from it? Take the help and don’t stress about it. It’s not personal, it’s just hard for most people to find a job. It was actually nice having some bonding time with my parents.

Thanks for that

Yeah I've done it in the past and honestly thought I was secure enough now to stay where I am and job hunt

Just disappointed in a way that I may have to go through this again. Sadly the job market where my parents live is even smaller as well

Venting … So, this is apropos timing. I was hired by a firm (not the one listed on my prof) two months ago and on at least three occasions notified them about my adhd and the anticipated need for an accommodation based on historical experience and my documented diagnosis. 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..

Has anyone else been in a similar position? If so, how have you navigated this?
