    ADHD Struggling

    I was diagnosed last year and ever since I have been struggling to function. When I am at work I have a hard time focusing I'm on the verge of losing my job because I can't seem to get it right. I am looking for a support group that could help me figure it out,any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Try using a timer to finish work. I use my phone to set a timer for twenty minutes and only focus on work for those twenty minutes. If you don't want your phone to make too much noise, set it on vibrate so you can still hear the timer alarm go off. Then, spend about two minutes as a break, and do it again.
    When I first did this, I made the time as short as ten minutes then worked my way up.
      • I also have ADHD, and Ive had many jobs, taken plenty of emotional beatings, suffering and pains through the years. I havent been able to "fix" or control my ADHD, but from what Ive experienced sometimes what helps a great deal, is to know, that inwardly you are a very unique and amazing person. Chances are that like me, youve been harder on yourself than anyone else. I cant give medical or nutritional help. But as Im reminding myself even now, your not alone, you are loved, and even our biggest mistakes can appear miniscule to others I hope this gives even a little encouragement ^_^

    Many studies have shown that the use of lemon oil can help focus attention. You can use lemon oil in a diffuser, which helps focus attention, while lemon oil has been diffused in room.

    Hi. I am also looking for a support group. I am now and have always been on the verge of losing my job. I understand what you are going through. I have lost more jobs than kept. Just diagnosed 2 years ago at age 60! If only I had known. Maybe we can find some support. I really understand how you are feeling
