I have started a career job I really like working, but I have a difficult time out in the field, and in life. I have difficulty paying attention when people are talking to me, forget important details and dates, act before I think, unintentionally inturrupt people when they are talking, diffuculty applying skills and actions from training to field work, often struggle with employer/employee relationships, no matter how hard I practice and try to be professional it's still poor in many areas, social relationships, and I don't do well with talking with people. I have to quit the career job or the company will let me go.
According to my psychiatrist, my problems are more related to mood issues. I do have major depressive disorder, which does affect me too. will i ever be able to work and keep a career job?View Thread
im no parent or expert, but it seems to me he shows signs of oppositional defiant disorder. ask your son's doctor if a mobile therapist (mt), behavioral specialist consultant (bsc), or a therapeutic staff support (tss) exists in the state you live in. if you live in pennsylvania, they exist here.View Thread
