How do you work through when your condition affects you at work? I’m a barista and my big mistakes and making white mochas instead of mochas and iced drinks instead of hot. My brain flips and mixes some letters around and off I go! It’s embarrassing when I don’t catch myself and either a customer or lead has to correct me. I try to stay positive and move on quickly but it’s hard not to take it to heart sometimes.

      Force yourself to read slowly and doublecheck every order. If anyone gets pissed at you for it tell them youd rather get it right and not make a mistake. Sometimes what ill do is i like.. train myself to emphasize on the different sounds? Like "WHITE mocha" or "ICED drink" You can try to like associate a color or a familiar sight to each, so when someone orders iced drinks you just picture it as being blue/a frozen lake and keep that image in ur head while making it
