I’ve been very lucky that my ADHD has not prevented me from being successful in my school career or with my strong drive and motivation. I have a Master’s in Marine Biology. However, my drive is now causing me a lot of anxiety. I haven’t been able to gain a job in my field and recently I have been feeling like a failure.
My family and friends sometimes say I have too much drive and I want things to be done yesterday. I am really struggling to keep going with finding a job or an internship. I take each job rejection personally and I can’t emotionally take it anymore. I am not the one to give up but I don’t what I am going to do if I never find a job in my field. I feel like I wasted a good chunck of my life on a dream that will not come true.
