Hello there forum, I'm looking to meet someone nice with the same interests.........
Oh sorry wrong forum.
I am 49 years old, and I had the second of my two assessments yesterday and the diagnosis was that I am on the spectrum, have ADHD and Pathological demand avoidance.
I really don't know what this all means in terms of going forward, and to be honest I can't even get my head around it.
Waking up today and thinking about it all is still a struggle, the clouds have not cleared for me as yet and I am in a real mess.
It has been an uphill battle with waiting for appointments and pushing and pushing for assessments and the constant 'But theres something not right doc' appointments.
When I now read through the ADHD information online that might as well be me they are talking about pretty much from start to finish, same with the avoidance stuff. It is incredible that you can be so exactly like the description and yet. And yet! And that is where the problem is I guess.
I have struggled with keeping the see saw balanced for as long as I can remember and to think that I am over the hump so to speak and am able to put this right is mind blowing, but like I said of no immediate peace or help
The team I am seeing are putting me through for specialised consulling and that should be 6 to 8 weeks time. In the mean time they are going to make appointments for me to go back and see the team as well at some point. I have waited this long I don't suppose waiting months more is going to matter.
It is a very strange feeling, and one that is quite difficult to come to terms with, even though I suppose the answer was kind of the one I was hoping for.
Is there a thread here for local support groups in the UK? I would be interested and would find it helpful i think to start doing something positive while waiting for the appointments to come through.
Thanks for listening.
