    Everyone! If you want, check out my Medium post that goes more in depth about my further revelations on ADHD. Writing has helped me a great deal!

    I am 27 years old, and currently struggling to figure out what path I want to/would excel at. I am currently in the healthcare industry, and working in research. I am often in a small space with no windows, and only two people to talk to. While, the job does not require a lot of interpersonal contact, it’s something that I miss from my other jobs. Recently it came to light, that basic data entry I did was done incorrectly. When looking at the errors I had done, they didn’t make sense. It was like I was on a different planet when performing the task. I really wanted to excel into academia, but I am finding that my inability to pay attention to details and perform a nuanced tasks is extremely difficult to manage. I somehow was able to finish my Masters program, and am now in a position that I do not enjoy at all. While I am scouring the web for new jobs, and leveraging all of my connections to find something – I am desperately trying to identify what I would be good at.

    Thank you!! Yes I would love to have a conversation! My heart is full at all the responses of similar stories and support. This whole diagnosis has led me to be true to myself and learning to acknowledge my strengths and weaknesses. Can’t wait to get going with it!

    First of all, wow! Loved your post! Lots of emotion and clear understanding of your gift and how this wild thought process is actually a benefit!
    I have to say, I have been finding a lot of love and acceptance in the stand up comedy community. That group of people tend to have similar ideas and thoughts lol!

    Add me on facebook if you want!

    Natalie Hudgins thank you for your kind words and story! I am constantly trying to assess myself for my errors, the small nuanced details I always miss, but often forget the bigger picture. Thank you for reminding me of my success and to count my wins over all my losses. I love the support you have, and I have enlisted my boyfriend to help me progress forward (though he is currently in the process of getting adderall himself!).
    Thanks again!
