An email with my CDs cc’d that starts, “didn’t know if you saw my last couple of emails...”

like

Email them to keep your papertrail. Make it clear what you need and what happens if they don't deliver. Bump it at a reasonable but increasing frequency. Include whoever's needed to cover your ass. And that's that.

“Hey dude wtf”

“As per my last emailllll..”

Just direct the account team/PM to them, and say you need X amount of time after their review. Let others chase for you

at this point I'm done with emails and I go to phone calls and might even show up to their home

How do you know if you actually have inattentive ADHD vs general anxiety? Those of you who do: how long did it take to get diagnosed? I’m at a point where I’m considering getting an official diagnosis from a doc. It’s interfering with my day to day ie I easily zone out and get real anxious halfway through conversations (even short ones) Zoom calls are no better. I often forget timelines & major details esp about people. (I was talking to a friend about someone and forgot we all work together)

Receiving any negative/constructive feedback scares the sh*t out of me. I had a toxic previous job experience with a manager who used any small thing as a means to scare me out of employment. Now at my new place of employment, if I do get a constructive comment or something to work on, a lot of anxious thoughts run through my mind until I can somehow calm down and go back to working somewhat productively again - but I always have that fear of being fired over it. 😔
