I recently got my diagnosis after being referred by my Doctor about a year ago. My referral was in Leeds. I wouldn’t have been able to afford to go private, and I’ve waited this long (I’m 38) so waiting for this, whilst it did seem a long time, what’s one more year! At least I have my diagnosis now.

I did keep ringing the service to check I was on the list, and they’d update me and tell me exactly how many people were in front of me, and how long they’d think it would take.

Good luck, you’ll get there! 🙂
