I'm 24 and I'm okay at a lot of things but not especially good at anything. I went to college but I've been unemployed since(2 years). I've done a lot of things and met a lot of people but nothing ever seemed to pan out for me and I've yet to make something of myself. As it is, the only thing I seem to have any expertise in is wasting time and opportunities. I've wanted to do all sorts of things, become fluent in another language, play music, be an artist, learn a trade, etc, but have never managed to achieve any of those goals, or even come close.

I think I'm a lost cause, /adv/. Is there anything you think I can do about it? I'm just addicted to wasting my life away and then pouting about it when I realize I haven't done anything with all the spare time I have.

Pick one and apply yourself.

This and failing that, go get tested for ADHD. You sound exactly like me before I got medicated. I had 1001 hobbies I wanted to pursue but could never follow through with any of them even if my life depended on it.

I have considered that I might have ADHD, it would explain a hell of a lot. Concerned about side effects of medication, though.

ADHD can be treated as a medical condition.
Keep in mind, it is not a disease. It does not happen to you.

ADHD can also be treated like an addiction
or a bad habit

My suggestion, start treating problem behaviors like habits before addictions or diseases.

Well why the fuck aren't you out looking for a job RIGHT NOW? My guess is that you're too comfortable living with mommy and daddy and know your meal ticket isn't going anywhere and they won't do shit to pressure you more than yell at you.

I bet if your parents were kicking your ass out your "ADD" would become only a minor hindrance right quick. I'm so fucking glad my parents threw me out at 22. I cleaned up my act as fast as you could say "tendies".

>>16584198

after you cleaned up your act did you reconcile with your parents?
