I'm 25 Y/O. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was just 5. I stopped taking the medication when I was in college, but recently had to take a temp job while I'm trying to get back on the career path I want to be on. But my job is miserable. I've been there for almost 8 months, and the type of work I do can be very difficult for someone with a limited attention span. I basically perform the same, mundane data entry task about 20-40 times a day. There are so many things to look at, that sometimes... I just completely zone out and can't even understand what I'm reading or how to even do my job. I've been taking 10 mg of Adderall for the past few months but i don't really think that its helping... I'm not even sure if its a solution to the problem at all. All I know is I'm very unhappy, and I feel like no one really understands why I can't concentrate... or why I am even starting to struggle with my memory. Aside from my boyfriend, I lost all of my friends when I developed depression. Everything about my situation sounds alien to my family, as well. Their advice often misses the point.
I suppose my point is that I'm at an impasse. I feel crippled by my mental faculties. And in a very serious way, they are leading me down a dark path of self-reflection. Does anyone out there understand? Can anyone out there show me a way forward?
