My ADHD symptoms are ruining my lifeWatch
we asked to see a different paediatrician, but were told she was "the only one". we know for a fact this isnt true because my cousin sees a completely different person, for the same reason, at the same place, but when we brought this up we were just brushed off. whenever we tried getting referred to someone else, we ended up back with her.
im getting desperate. this is ruining my life and if nothing changes, my future. im predicted failing grades in almost all of my subjects because im being ****ed over by my own brain. its been bad all my life, but its been getting so much worse through my teenage years. im sick of it. i know a lot of people who are in similar situations end up turning to drugs out of desperation, and i understand why.
paying for a private assessment isnt an option, and at this point my best bet is to wait it out until im old enough to be referred to the adult services. and who knows what could happen between then and now.
does anyone know if my doctor would be able to prescribe me ANYTHING that could help with this WITHOUT an official diagnosis? i know theres an ADHD medication they can prescribe to adults without a diagnosis, but ive never heard of it being done for teenagers. if not i have no idea what ill do.
