    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I'm a 25 year old who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, and anxiety:

    My biggest problem is that I am suppose to have a job and have already graduated from high school and 2 job assessments. I have been to several interviews here in Nevada and no one is willing to hire me at all. I'm almost at the end of my rope and don't know what to do. Does anyone have any advice for one with more issues than most?

    Hi atb224155,

    You might find this article on ADHD in the workplace helpful. Have you tried working with a career counselor? The article suggests finding a counselor who can help identify a job that fits with your interests and needs -- maybe one with flexible hours or an environment that suits you. This slideshow also has some daily living tips for ADHD that could help in your job search and beyond. I hope that you are able to find the right job for you soon, don't get discouraged! I'm sure other members will add their experiences and tips soon.

    Best wishes,
    Atti
