Great to have a Forum that I can speak to fellow “brains”! It feels pretty lonely here in South Africa, ADHD is still very Taboo here and a lot of people still see it as an excuse! I was diagnosed when I was 31 with Severe ADHD and Developmental Dyslexia. I always knew that there was something different about me, but I never could put my hand on it, until my dad heard someone speaking about it on Radio and realised that, that is exactly his son and wife! My mom and I went for tests, she was diagnosed at the young age of 60!!
I went for a second and third opinion and all three confirmed.
I am now on Concerta and man has that changed my life!
I would love to start a support group here in Johannesburg, but not sure how to go about it and also scared that I will get labelled at work etc.
Well that’s my intro, hope to meet some fellow South Africans here! Otherwise, great to be able to discuss things with like minded “BRAINS”!
