ribaru: Hi, I'm 51, joined here to see how relatable ADHD problems are, and as an introductory thought, wondered if "Jack of all trades master of none" (John Gower) was the first literal description of medieval ADHD (only an amusing thought, not serious). Oct 26, 2019 15:03:55 GMT
bearzoo33: Hey ADHD Dudes. Anyone else feel there is NO PROPER place where recently diagnosed ADHDers can hang out together? Meeting in a Costa Coffee central London feels a little backwards. Anyone keen to start a movement with me? Oct 25, 2019 16:59:20 GMT
urcapable: Hi everyone. I've just started a blog where I will be talking about the ways I have coped with ADHD and dyslexia. Come and have a look leave some comments and ask some questions. urcapable.com/ Oct 22, 2019 12:16:55 GMT
paulfcb: Hi. I'm new to this forum having been recently diagnosed at age 55. It explains a lot about me. Does anyone have any tips about whether or not to take medication. My psychiatrist has prescribed Medikinet XL. What are your experiences people? Oct 20, 2019 20:24:31 GMT
clbp: Hello, Ive just joined the group..... so I need to navigate around and find out some btis Oct 18, 2019 12:50:46 GMT
adhdnoob: hi... just registered. 54 yo. Diagnosed last autumn. Always struggled - now I know why! Still not used to/settled on meds Oct 9, 2019 19:32:43 GMT
biopsych: Just joined the forum and awaiting a diagnosis. Looking to perhaps go private but restricted by cost. Looking to gain some insight into living with ADHD. Sept 22, 2019 18:17:43 GMT
hargreaves: Just discovered this place. Will take me a while to actually sit down and write a post (could be anything up to a few months!!), but I feel like I have found my people. Sept 11, 2019 6:43:41 GMT
mandible: hi.. I dont know how this works so pls be patient with me, only joined recently Aug 16, 2019 13:52:07 GMT

bex: Been a manager for years, just gone back into hands on work (so I can work for myself) but really struggling with symptoms. Argh. Not getting anything done. Aug 12, 2019 16:51:09 GMT
vagueandrandom: The ADDUK website is very out of date. What kind of help/support are you looking for in London? Jul 19, 2019 17:31:17 GMT
fromtheblock: Is this an NHS site...? most state run websites seem almost deliberately awful don't they? Almost like the purpose is to create a fake veneer that a service exists, but when one scratches the surface, the whole thing collapses. And why am I 'shouting as' Jul 19, 2019 16:01:37 GMT
fromtheblock: Out of 5 of the London contacts on the ADDUK site for help/support, 2 links go no where or to wrong place, and another has come back as a wrong email address. So I guess I will go with the only person I could contact then yeah??!! Jul 19, 2019 15:55:39 GMT
fromtheblock: No offense but this website is a freakin' mess!! even for mainstream people, let alone ADD peoples. 2 of the help contacts (London area) are useless as they have completely wrong links to them. One goes to a website for a restaurant. WTH!!! Jul 19, 2019 12:46:27 GMT
katejacko: I am currently 1 year into a 3 year wait for adult merseyside adhd services, when i rang they said something about my GP being able to make some kinda request with the CCg to move things forward, my GP didnt know, I didnt catch the whole info. Anyone know? Jul 18, 2019 4:41:14 GMT *
