silver: My wonderful Mother recently declared I was diagnosed ADD, as a child. This would have happened sometime in the late 70's. Hmmm. Seriously? This is either a 'golden opportunity' or 'poison chalice' Current status.... sitting on the fence Jan 21, 2020 10:41:59 GMT
toshi: Hi ,there, I am 49 years old mum of 10 years old kid. I am bad parent, and it's made my kid unwell, my husband pointed out I have to change how I behave towards to my kid. NHS discharged me already, as they don't have any source in Cambridge. Jan 17, 2020 21:45:27 GMT
kpnutz5357: HI I'm 57 & from west midlands,I'm still on waiting list to be assessed.My family & friends are in denial I have ADHD. My husband know i have these symptoms,but at times he gets frustrated & then i get stressed & more depressed. Any support in this area Jan 9, 2020 3:56:40 GMT

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
