Question: I was officially diagnosed with ADHD almost two years ago, although I’ve been aware of having it for most of my adult life. I’ve become much better at managing the symptoms but it can still get in the way of work, where I can struggle with time-keeping, multi-tasking, general admin tasks and ADHD burnout.

I move from job to job a lot, particularly when a role becomes overwhelming, or when it feels like managers are getting frustrated with me. I have no problem finding new jobs. The problem is that my career isn’t progressing and, at this point, it feels like something has to change.
