wasteytime: Diagnosed two days ago, I didn’t have to wait, I did the right to choose and had an online appointment. It was scary but actually all good. I would recommend but won’t mention the company Nov 28, 2020 8:12:09 GMT
Byron: Mollymoo - Hi, am just about to (hopefully) start this journey myself. I understand it could be anything from a couple of months to about a year depending on where you live. Am seriously considering self funding to accelerate the process! (I'm 42) Nov 25, 2020 10:36:57 GMT

sandgazer: Just diagnosed with ADHD aged 48! Wish there was more conversation & awareness about adult ADHD & the positive 'super power' aspects of it. The world needs all kinds of minds... & ADHD & neurodiverse minds should be celebrated & highly sought after! :) Nov 10, 2020 21:11:30 GMT
