My menopause was a nightmare. Time we received public health funding and a proper clinical pathway for treatment accessible to all. Sadly if we don’t advocate for change no-one else will! New Zealand contributes much to the international research on ADHD and yet provides no adult funded public health treatment. Sorry for being political! To end on a positive note…at 57 years of age now I’m content with myself and my self-management of PTSD and ADHD. Self care sucks but I’ve learned to live with it. So time, for me, has afforded me some internal peace. I wish that for you all too. Kia Kaha kai kiti. Be strong and goodbye.( for now)
