Job change has led to apathy about work and I'm worried where this is going. Any tips to get back on track?
I switched companies a year ago but I have been doing the same technical sales job for a while. Now, the job remained the same but the technology I sell is different and even though I have 15+ years experience in this field, it seems like an uphill battle to learn this stuff. I have the capability to learn it but I feel tired and like it is a lot of effort to do so. Work has been slow and managment has had a lot of changes. I guess over the summer, all of this has left me with a lot of apathy about my work which is 180 degrees (my wife use to fuss at me because I put work ahead of family) of where I have been. You would think that I'd be doing more around the house and with the family but I think I'm slipping the wrong way. I just don't feel like doing much of anything. I am mid-thirties and ADHD (hypoactive) but I'm pretty sure my meds are still working. I feel like something is overpowering them instead of them not working. Any tips to getting me on the right track?

Try shifting gears for awhile. Try a new line of work that interests you. Your talents won't desert you and you won't forget how to get back into your current occupation. Sometimes, a change of pace and going from what you know how to do and taking on something you know nothing about can re-make a person.
