Good to see you again! :)
I've worked in a WIDE Variety of jobs myself... None of them have been something I think I could do long-term. My current job is working from home, which I thought would be great with it's flexible schedule and actually higher pay-rate than the same job in town. Unfortunately, I am beginning to wonder if the isolation, and being left on my own for discipline and motivation is a good idea... I read all these articles on how to find the perfect job if you're an adult with ADHD, but there hasn't been any that have pointed me in a direction that works. After taking multiple apptitude tests and "what's the career for you" type questionaires, my results have been "you belong in management", "advertising", "creative", "strong personal skills", "outgoing", and so on. Well, I have been in management, and did love it, until I didn't anymore, same with advertising, and bartending, and sales, and non-profit organizations, and interior decorating and many more career choices. I would love to get paid to do my art, building furniture, or working with kids, etc. (all my loves), but that's not the case. Ha!
About the only advise I can offer is to try to do your job, but to keep it to work hours (if that's possible! LOL) and to pursue other interests outside of work. I always feel better at work after I've done something I love. Almost like I have a view of "I can't do the stuff I love without the paycheck", so it's a means to an end and doesn't define me.
Also, I would ask yourself, "Do I really NEED that 2nd house?" Whenever I've felt I'm only working to stay afloat, and not towards something I love, it makes it all the more unbearable.
I don't know all the particulars, but from what I gathered I hope I've helped? I tried! HA!
BTW, thanks for that link to BPD with that football player! I meant to answer back, but forgot... uhg!
