Hey all, I've been a RN for 9 years (8 of those years are in ICU & pre/post/intra-op). I was diagnosed with ADHD 7 years ago & PTSD 3 years ago (and am prescribed ADHD, anti-anxiety, anti-depressant meds. Currently in therapy). That last few years have been difficult. Lost multiple jobs. Can see it's stress related - personal reasons and work place reasons. Work-related stress impacts me hard (poor teamwork, high turnover, gossip, bad reports during shift change, being accused of things I didn't do which leaves me feeling like I cannot trust my co-workers). I get distracted and "stuck in my head" when things like that comes up. When an actual problem (mistake was on me and I own it) OR a perceived "concern" would be brought up to my Nurse Director by co-workers, 90% of time I would just accept the feedback, and we'd talk about ideas that would help improve performance (FMLA or going part time for awhile). I also came up with my own "toolbox" to help with stress management: regular exercise, creating routines, grounding techniques, timers, lists, good sleep/good diet /staying hydrated, arriving extra early to work, asking for "check ins" to see if I'm doing better or worse or the same, hobbies, spending time with friends, reaching out to EAP, reaching out to HR to inquire about options/resources... (I really wished HR would have responded to me... Reached out to HR for 3 months, told my Director I had been reaching out, but HR was never available nor replied to any of my messages). Lost last job due to performance issues - I was burnt out and already seeking another jobs before being let go. I don't want to keep losing jobs & I don't want to fail as a nurse. I know that there are certain stressors that really "trigger" the ADHD and PTSD symptoms (such as being ganged up on/accused of something I did not do, being shouted at by co-workers, feeling like the "outsider"). I realize that I tend to "people please" and over - extend myself, and that can be taken advantage of (probably due to poor boundaries). Personal problems, managing super sick patients, running a code, and even COVID didn't/doesn't stress me out nearly as much as, what often feels like, being bullied. I DO work hard, am creative, detail-oriented, flexible, love to learn, great with computers/anything "techy", am team-player focused, and receptive to feedback. I don't complain, gossip, and I show up with a cool/calm/collected attitude, no matter what is going on in or outside of work. Now am currently job searching, and while I do that, want know more about when/if/how to ask for a reasonable accommodation, and what that would look like. Never explored the idea before... I usually just push myself to exhaustion and then blame myself and my confidence is certainly taking a hit. One idea was something like requesting regular check-ins AHEAD of time, or having a nurse mentor, or something like that. Also just open to general advice. Any ideas and thoughts are welcome.
