Adhd unemployment

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd unemployment


Avatar n tn When they let her go…it's everyone elses fault, then she can’t figure out how to file for unemployment or even get herself motivated enough to turn in applications. If we try to help her, she doesn’t want to show us the forms she needs to fill out for unemployment, the paperwork that says her state benefits are shut off, etc…so we can't seem to help her. She keeps it all hidden, so my mom can’t “control” her, but then can’t get it done on her own.
1059647 tn?1255039454 And lately its been happening a lot, probably due to mounting stress from school and new unemployment. I sit down with the drive and intention to work on something I need to do, but then as I start to think about the task my heart starts racing, my breathing gets shallow, I feel shaky, I feel an urge to leave, my eyes start watering, I feel like I'm going to cry.
Avatar f tn What i do have if this helps and was before the fire adhd chronic pain and anxiety after the fire cptsd i see smoke. I almost passed away trying to save out cats and was unsuccessful.
Avatar f tn I was just thinking the symptoms you describe don't really sound like ADHD, are you sure that is what you have? Because my family has a lot of ADHD, my mom, son, and sister are all ADHD, I am mildly ADD. Don't know how much research you've done on this but I did quit a bit, and you sound like you may have a social anxiety problem, and there are so many spectrums of certain disorders.
728965 tn?1266377245 When he came into the gift shop, he didn't have his smile. It broke my heart. What was he going to do? Did he get unemployment? Would he find something else, or be forced into an early retirement... Then selfishly I began to worry about my own job. Sure they are laying off the big guys that make a lot of money. I finally appreciate that I make little money, so I would be last to be axed? Right? What would I do? I am soooo stressed about money.
Avatar f tn He hasn't ever suggested any type of NA or AA and now he has presribed him Adderall (with a a diagnosis of Adult Adhd)!! WHY ON EARTH WOULD would you ever prescribe a highly addictive stimulant to someone who is addicted to stimulants?? Now perhaps the ADHD diagnosis is correct (hints the addictive personality,etc.) but EVERYTHING i have read on Adderall says "you should not take Adderall if you have a history of drug and/or alcohol abuse".
1310633 tn?1430227691 Nock and his colleagues found that almost all teens who thought about or attempted suicide had a mental disorder, including depression, bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or problems with drug or alcohol abuse. More than half of the youth were already in treatment when they reported suicidal behavior, which Nock said was both encouraging and disturbing.
Avatar n tn I am depressed/OCD, and need psychotherapy and psychiatric medication, but I have no job, and I'm living on unemployment benefits (which only pays the rent) What should I do? (I live in the CA Bay Area in Fremont) Over the past 8 years or so, I've noticed that I have been having a lot of trouble with my memory and concentration. I have trouble focusing on what people are saying, and I can barely remember what someone just told me just a moment ago. I can't think clearly.
Avatar f tn I lost the apartment I was suppose to move into tomorrow. My unemployment check didnt come on time (today) and when I asked the landlord if I could move my stuff in Sunday and pay him Monday he said he wanted me to pay the entire security deposit (we had agreed that I would pay $300.00 in the middle of Nov. and $300.00 in the middle of Dec.) he decides he wants the full the amount upon the move in..$600.00.
Avatar m tn In many ways I feel quite lucky - especially compered to the folks in my family who have dealth with substance abuse, unemployment, criminal charges, etc. But that still hasnt given me any deeper meaning or purpose that I thought I would find. Although I was raised going to church, I havent had much stomach for it lately. Ive been through a peroid where I had a bit of a drinking problem, but seem to have put that behind me mostly.
Avatar f tn I suffer from severe depression along with PTSD and ADHD. It affects my life and makes things very difficult for me, I'm not making excuses, I take my meds, I go to counseling...but he doesn't understand it. He thinks I should be able to work no matter what the case may be. He has been at his job for 18 years and has supported me for the past 11 years. I do feel so terribly guilty about all this. And there have been other things that have happened.
1448936 tn?1363209946 It really helps to read self help books as all these pills are addicting and just cover up the problem. I hope with GODS help soon someday I can get off all these meds..I also suffer from ADHD and take Ritalin so I am wired allot and can not sleep.My friends state Benadryl really knocks you out at bedtime but for me it does the opposite and wakes me right up.Also if you eat allot of cheese that will help with the Diarrhea which I also suffer from.. Good luck GF and here for you anytime!!
Avatar n tn Note that the previous eight-nine months were by far the most stressful experience of my life, with worries about unemployment, though Following that I started to have twitches everywhere, though curiously enough the eyelids have now stopped. The left handside of the body is slightly more affected, though there are twitches everywhere except the hands and feet. No problems swallowing/talking at all, though I have twitches on the temple and the jaw sometimes.
Avatar m tn Over the years I was on Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Luvox, amphetamine salts, Prozac, Lamictal, Risperidone, Xanax, Adderall and Ativan. I was diagnosed (by diff docs) as OCD, ADHD, BIPOLAR2, DYSTHMIA AND GAD My Father, Uncle and a friend died within 6 months of each other. I didn’t cry. I just felt numb (meds?) I started to see a NP who helped a friend of mine. She was very nice. She put me on Prozac. When I didn’t feel better, she had me talk to her mentor, a Psychiatrist.
Avatar m tn To be a real disease there has to be a biological test or pathology. If someone has schizophrenia, ADHD, conduct disorder, depression etc there is no biological test so it would be insane to treat them with neuro-pharmacology. A real disease like AIDS, Cancer, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's,Leukaemia, Diabetes etc all have a medical test or are confirmed at autopsy. In science there's suppose to be a hypothesis, then research and then a conclusion.
Avatar n tn i just got a full time job after collecting unemployment benefits for 9 months. im happy to be back to work making some real money. hope things work out for you. write back . let me know how things are working out. so long for now.......................... cleanupforme.
Avatar m tn This is not hyperbole. The facts prove it. The wars are over, the economy is booming. Unemployment, like gas prices, are dropping and we have seen record levels of job growth. By any measure of success, including that of Republican candidates in 2012, his presidency has been a success. Even businesses and Wall Street agree that Republicans are killing the economy, and the evidence proves that the economy grows more under Democratic than Republican presidents.
Avatar n tn It is a very real disorder that arises from an imbalance in the dopamine signaling pathways. For people who live with ADD/ADHD, it can be a misery, and the drugs that work on it have side effects in children that are not good. CFS is also not a "fad" but established, and depression? Nothing that is "fad" about that--another neurotransmitter imbalance that can be extraordinarily resistant to correction and lead to suicidal ideation, destroyed families, destroyed lives.
Avatar m tn (a) Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), (b) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, or conduct disorder, but it is difficult to disentangle those features from those of BPD. I certainly exhibited episodes of hyperactivity-impulsivity or just impulsivity, but I cannot find any detailed information about these early years since everyone who knew me then is now dead or not contactable. 2.7.1.
163305 tn?1333672171 The US is the most wealthy nation in the world, we have the highest overall standard of living, the lowest overall unemployment rate, the best healthcare available anywhere, virtually zero starvation (other than that caused by neglectful/abusive parents and/or amongst the mentally ill) so please oh please don't try and sell the shuck and jive imagary of mounds of stillborn babies and people dying en masse before their time.
Avatar n tn Since we had adopted our grandson, I have to keep up with a red headed 12 year old with ADHD and ODD. It was getting harder each day. I finally searched, and found that I could order it again, and feel 30 years younger again. Flex Protex is unbelievable! My neighbor gives it to her dog, and the dog acts like a puppy again.
286034 tn?1201100440 I am what most would consider ADHD so reading books is not in the cards but I enjoy anything that can hold my attention for more than 30 minutes! I have 3 dogs, 2 Jack Russels and a Humane Society mix that is my baby! It is wonderful getting to know you all! Oh yeah - and I earned a Gold medal in the 2004 Olymipics in the 200 m hurdles - how about that Johnny!! Isn't the internet great!
Avatar f tn I do have them talking to a therapist thank god he was already coming here for my son he has behavioral issues, he was diagnosed with PDD ODD and ADHD when he was 3 so no these are not new issues but I know his behavior lately has some to do with my hubbys problem no doubt that is why I have the therapist here and a behaviorist.
Avatar n tn Until now, I feel like I never wanted to aceept that I have a disorder. I recently this year was diagnosed with adult adhd. And I was put on a 20mg a day dose of adderal. I'm not sure thats made a difference with the picking, although great for my adhd. So it def gose in spurts, sometimes I have nothing and others like now, my head is covered in scabs. I believe I do have some sort of ecsema or phoriosis, Because my ears are always dry and scabby.
Avatar n tn So I was taking about 10 norcos a day 10/325 I am about 22 hrs clean I have tappered a little for 2 days. I have read and heard if you take a med thats for ADHD (Vyvanse) I got some I was told to take 2 30mg tablets a day for 5 days and I will be fine. As I said before I am almost 24hrs into this and I actually feel pretty good not great but ok. I have heard the first 24-48 hrs are the very worst is this true? I have always had medical detox so I never felt anything.
