This time 18 months ago, I would have laughed should you have told me I had ADHD.
12 months ago I began to research it and come to terms with the fact that this might be applicable to me.
I spoke to my GP provider and was then referred to Psychiatry UK. The assessment so much quicker than I thought and the whole process was smooth and clear. I was never made to feel silly if I didn't understand something and everyone took the time to ensure I understand all that I needed to - which did wonders for my anxiety.
The medication was life changing in so many good ways but, it wasn't easy at the beginning. The fact I could message my prescribing nurse and have a constant conversational thread got me through these tough times and without this whole process, I'd have probably given up and not persevered to see the wonders that medication can have.
The response times were so quick and so constant, I actually worried my prescribing nurse ever had a day off to recoup!
Thank you so much to all of the team.
