So I’ve been suspicious that I might have adhd for a while now as a lot of the symptoms of it have showed up in my life recently, but I don’t know how to tell my family that I think so. I would like to go visit a doctor to take a test or something so I don’t self diagnose, but I just don’t know what to tell my family. Please help

Go to your doctors about it. Make sure you have a list of reasons you think you have adhd.
Ask your gp to refer you to psychiatry UK under your right to choose (it’s much faster than an nhs diagnosis but is still free so long as you’re using right to choose referral)
