Subject: Can't keep a job


I'm new to this site and have yet to be diagnosted, but I just can't figure out why I can't keep a job. I'm currently in Financial Systems and it seems like my time here is almost up. My background is in Accounting and Finance which I couldn't keep a job for more than a year.

I have a Bachelor's degree and currently finishing up an MBA.

I just can't figure it out. This is the most depressing part of my life and it is starting to take over. Anyone else having the same issue?

Any info or insight will mean a lot ot me. I just think that I'm lazy and can't get anything done right.

Hi Bostonwill and welcome here.
You really should get a diagnosis so that you know what you are dealing with. Then you can start to define coping strategies that help you get around your difficulties.

Thanks. I spoke to a few individuals that have a LD and I don't think I fall into this category.

I think I just need to find a job/company I like, instead of just getting a job for a paycheck.

Thanks again.
