I do not have a diagnosis of ADHD. When I was 16 I realised that it may be something that needed looking into, or at least help with understanding something. There was just a thread that needed to be followed up on, even if I was wrong. So I spoke to my parents about it and I asked them to give me the benefit of the doubt and look it up - properly. They didn't and after my long monologue I'd been talked out of it by tangents.
Then I got distracted, and I forgot about it. I'm 23 now I don't want to speak about those 8 years really, I never want it to happen to anyone else. I don't believe half of the stuff that happened, it has been surreal and really horrible.
I came to the same conclusion again recently at which point I remembered I'd already worked it out as the cause of many of my problems (compounded by many other issues in my family). But my memory doesn't seem to work in a way that allows me to live normally.
I feel as though I have been let down repeatedly, and I have lost the chance of ever even getting my A-levels let alone going to University for good. I need some advocacy or some recognition of what has happened. I know I won't keep the chance of getting it forever. What am even supposed to do here? I don't want medication or treatment just advocacy, who do I speak to?
I have lost so much of my life already, I am capable of a lot and all I ever wanted to do was help people with it. So much of this could have been avoided so easily. I don't have the energy to get knocked back another time and still be able to trust other people.
vagueandrandom: The ADDUK website is very out of date. What kind of help/support are you looking for in London? fromtheblock

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'

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??!!

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!!!

jp: Hope you are OK too? Pressured out because of ADHD? They don't get you? Or you're a threat somehow? Sorry whatever the source of the pressure!
Jul 2, 2019 17:32:38 GMT
jp: yes - i'm fine thanks :-) he was definitely cluster B, and if it weren't for impulsiveness i might still be being abused!

vagueandrandom: Oh no jp I hope you’re ok. I’m being pressured out of my job because of ADHD, although they’re careful not to make it overt. . .they keep on about supporting me so I can reach standards although they’ve not had a problem for the past 2 years.
