Hello again JDE,
May I ask who you were assessed by? I think I’d like to go and get assessed privately – if it is in or near greater London then I think I’ll give them a call – I can’t wait 4-6 months for the NHS – I’ve been feeling very low recently and am struggling to see the point of fighting on longer than I need to.
How long did your assessment take and did it involve digging out school records and so on? I’ve can certainly recite my history and show exam records and so on, but, being a few years older than you, it’ll be tough tracking down anyone who actualy knew me when I was a child, even assuming they are still out there.
Thank you and all the best for your help.
