I am considering accept the fact I really should get diagnosis of ADHD symptoms . My son has been diagnosed since he was age 13year . He in his 20’s now is a dad . He stopped his meds few years ago , luckily he has decided to take them again , which means go the our doctors get referred back to specialist , waited for 6 months got appointment , went give the specialist credit as he mentioned the obvious that symptoms are continuing . Gave a new slow release medication.. to try. This concerta slow release did not agree with my son . I still attend his appointment with him . He unable to communicate in these situations without getting all flustered and angry. Can’t explain himself so then he feels pathetic [his words] him being 6ft+some he’s a big lad [ for his mother] and does look quite intimidating to others .
His conditions of ADHD and oppositional disorder have been the reason behind his ability to gain employment But unfortunately ARE also the causes of why he can’t keep the job.
I thought I would share this with you .. we ADHD are very miss Read.. so we need to group together , as we don’t do 123
I SAY THIS ALOT , IT’S BASICALLY EXPRESS OUR BRAINS WORK DIFFERENTLY.
