I've had more than 50 jobs because of my ADHD | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE had more than 50 jobs but I can’t put that on my CV.

Some of them only last a day for me because I have such a short temper.

I’m a 31-year-old man and I’ve got ADHD.

I have a girlfriend but I know my work situation is a worry for her.

I’ve done everything from working in a fast-food restaurant to a garden centre.

My latest job was in a call centre.

If I feel people are rude, I bite back and then I’m often asked to leave.

I’m not good in social situations. I don’t even go out with my girlfriend and her friends because I feel uncomfortable.

I want to be good at my job and progress but something always happens.

Is it me or is it my condition which is stopping me from earning a living?
