easilydistracted: Hi Byron, If it's a post by a new user then it's it's a quirk of the moderation system - posts by new users are hidden until approved by a moderator. You can still read it if you select page source and read the raw HTML code Jan 10, 2021 18:01:29 GMT
Byron: Also, while I'm here, does anyone else have a problem with the first message of a thread disappearing as the page loads? Jan 10, 2021 17:18:43 GMT
Byron: Hi Thor974, I've checked in on here most days and I think it just is that quiet. Plus that requires scrolling down! Jan 10, 2021 17:17:51 GMT
thor974: just thought id mention it. is it me or the system ???? Jan 9, 2021 22:44:20 GMT
thor974: Hi All, this shout box doesn't seem to be updating, last shout on here I have is Dec 12th 2020. Jan 9, 2021 22:43:47 GMT
Byron: Thanks Mollymoo, I mentioned psychiatry-uk and right to choose and things went pretty smoothly, sorry to hear your experience wasn't so good, you'd hope that they'd be aware of these things! Dec 12, 2020 15:43:47 GMT
Mollymoo: My Doctor doesn't seem to know about "right to choice". Everything is such a battle. It's so frustrating. Dec 7, 2020 13:12:25 GMT
Mollymoo: Wasteytime - I'm pleased to hear you had some luck with the "right to choice" and have your diagnosis. I just found out about this and I'm going to do the same. I'm looking at psychiatry-uk. Byron you should check out the "right to choice" maybe. Dec 6, 2020 23:29:11 GMT
wasteytime: I am a 54 year old woman, not sure how people will take my diagnosis yet Nov 28, 2020 8:14:05 GMT
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
Byron: adhddara - Video doesn't seem to be working? Nov 25, 2020 10:34:47 GMT
Byron: Sandgazer - nice one, love the positiveness, agree 100% Nov 25, 2020 10:33:53 GMT
adhddara: hey guys check out my chat with my dad about my terrible adhd 20s which culminated in many rehabs and attempted suicide. then i got diagnosed and found the right meds and im leading a good path now. here is the link www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-6LlIct Nov 24, 2020 18:08:08 GMT
vagueandrandom: who do you want to DM? You can only DM after you’ve posted a certain number of times, but other people can DM you Nov 13, 2020 17:40:59 GMT
macshaw: how can we DM you? Nov 13, 2020 15:57:35 GMT
Mollymoo: Hi. Just wondering about peoples experience of getting an adult diagnosis with regard to time frame. I contacted my Doctor about a month ago who has started the referral process. I know it will take time. I'm 44 now. Nov 11, 2020 21:52:54 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
easilydistracted: Congratulations matches my tale! A trail of failures, finally getting diagnosed/ treated a few years ago and then managing to complete a course at night school, congrats and well done :) Oct 15, 2020 18:42:37 GMT
