Hi there.

You need a new psychiatrist. Whoever you were speaking to is clearly not a specialist in ADHD. The symptoms of ADHD CAN diminish with age, as we develop executive function skills, as the brain develops, as you learn coping methods to tackle it, etc., but it DOESN’T ALWAYS. Any competent psychiatrist or ADHD specialist will know this, and will take it into account.

You need a different specialist.
