I have always known I'm different to others and I've got a fair bit of therapy for depression with on and off success , which if I have ADHD makes sense why I blow hot and cold. I'm put off by the huge waiting list on the NHS , anyone in the southwest of the UK had any experience of good private diagnosis ?
Anyway just thought I'd join this forum although I'm a bit over whelmed by it all at the moment .
stuzer: Hi everyone. I'm a 41 year old (M) who has never been diagnosed but is 99.99% certain I have ADHD which was never spotted/manifested itself seriously in childhood but has reared up in adulthood. Hope I can find some answers here!

Rossall: Hi georgialocksss, yes life's a bitch with ADHD. You feel like you're in another universe to other people and no one you meet understands. (well I do anyway)

acorn: Hi Rossall, I have been informally diagnosed by a psycho therapist but am a waiting list to see the specialist through my GP. I can’t get meds otherwise. My daughter is seeing a psychiatrist privately on Sat. It seems like a lot, out of the blue.

Rossall: Hi acorn, well done for getting diagnosed are you on meds now?

acorn: Hello everyone. I have just found out I have ADHD and my 6 year old daughter has an assessment for it on Sat. I’m feeling very overwhelmed by all of this and really needed some real stories that from real people.

Rossall: Thanks for the reply. I was on Concerta about 6 years ago for a couple on months. It seemed to work at first but then wore off. Then I moved several times and changed GPs and have not been on it since
