Mid-Life Crisis

ADHD has made it hard to stick to a job let alone decide on a career. I’m stressing over how possible it’ll be for me to do basic things like buy a home without a stable background. Any encouragement is appreciated <3

Gosh, I’m so glad to have come across this post bc I struggle with indecision and it’s just getting worse lately too. I’m just constantly changing my mind to the point where I get absolutely nothing down. I’m not just talking about the little minor things either. I also feel lost and just meandering through an endless maze trying to commit to one career path bc ADHD or not life won’t have mercy on you and time is really ticking. Anyways, AHHHH we should hopefully be fine eventually… 😭

Really understand this as I’m the same. I have stuck to my career but as for jobs not as easy. My issue is not getting bored it’s my intolerance to injustice and my inability to tolerate BS. I guess people with ADHD can get irritated by these things more easily. I find taking time out to focus on other things helpful and to keep busy . At work I’m always doing courses to focus my mind. I also travel for work so I don’t get bored or be surrounded by the same people. X

I used to be a classroom teacher. It was my identity and my claim to normalcy/being caught up with everyone else. But then I was faced with some issues that made me step down very abruptly. Basically giving up my identity and badge of honor. As months passed, I learned I was just being delusional when I took my past job as being a part of me. There was a lot I didn’t know and the honor I felt was superficial. I learned I actually don’t need to do anything to show I’m caught up. On top of that, if I stayed in the field I wouldn’t have had so, so many eye opening experiences and acquired so much knowledge….including my adhd diagnosis. I think the fear of uncertainty and the belief that we’re the cause of everything that happens in our universe is the reason for the anxiety surrounding this issue. There’s a greater purpose.

I think about quitting my job every time I go into work but my social anxiety and fear of letting people down stops me. I also really like money, so that helps
