I have a lot of traumas which can hinder performance (depression and anxiety to name a few), I am on a long waiting list for the NHS so recovery will likely take a couple of years if I am lucky. I thought about applying for a part time job, and I am nervous because the employer called back (the phone interview went great) saying that it's a busy store and a lot of multitasking will be involved. I am pretty sure I have ADHD so multitasking is just gonna be horrible for me. But I am desperate for a job so I said yes.

you would know in practice if any metal issue would hinder your performance through giving the job a shot and if it becomes a problem then you can make it apparent to your employer that you may have an underlaying mental health issue.
