izzibear: Jax, did you get anywhere with the private option? My 19-year-old daughter was diagnosed with ADHD as a child but now Adult Services are refusing to renew her meds as they say her case isn't "severe" enough.

zelda: Hi, I’m a 60 year old who has always struggled with anxiety and depression. My GP has suggested I may have ADD and we’ve done the ADD ASRS questionnaire but I’m told I can’t be referred as there are no services for adults my age. Any suggestions?

flowergirl: Hi I'm new and very keen to find other women living with ADHD. I'm 48, diagnosed 4 years ago, Converta XL helps me hugely, but hormones try to up-end any equilibrium. Not much support in the UK for women with ADHD. Anyone out there who can advise?

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
