Hey, what have you got to lose if you go on the waiting list for the assessment? It might take a bit of time, but by the sounds of it, you are wanting some answers to your struggles. I would also book an appointment with the university’s student support team and they will be able to provide you with an educational diagnosis that should offer some help with your assignments. Take the help that is on offer! The other thing is, is that ADHD doesn’t always present on its own and can be accompanied by other conditions such as autism, OCD, depression and anxiety. It is often missed because of the depression and anxiety bit. Go easy on yourself, you are at university, so you are already doing well! Also, you might be 30, but you still have the rest of your life ahead of you and actually, you are quite young to be diagnosed, as far as women go!
Best wishes,
