Thank you for sharing your experience.
Last time I called doctors in the area they all wanted a diagnosis (hence the neurologist) before even talking about ADHD. Is there a way around that or do I just widen the net? What do I ask about on the phone to get in the door?
Do people react differently if I loudly declare I’m not interested in stimulant medication?
