New to this group, binging on How To ADHD and Jessica. I’m in Victoria, Australia and seriously proud of the journey I’m making with this diagnosis. Fancy being a mature adult and finding out why I always felt different.
Welcome to the community!
I was diagnosed in my early 50’s (now 73) . . . So, ditto to that!
Welcome. Looking forward to seeing you around.
Welcome. I was diagnosed a few years more than a decade ago, when I started up law school (and therefore regained for a while regular access to campus-based counseling and medical and career advice, all rolled into one institution) at the ripe old age of 42.
I was just diagnosed. My husband and 2 of my 4 children were all diagnosed a couple years ago. I saw signs in myself, but I always thought I just needed to try harder. I’ve always been super hard on myself, which counseling and peer groups have helped, but being stuck at home for months with absolutely no schedule has created an overwhelming chaotic hell. My house is terrible and I sit there thinking I need to get up and do something, but I feel paralyzed when I’m overwhelmed.
Good you are here . . . Only love, support and integrity abound here. Don’t be shy and keep in touch. We all have much to gain from each other!
Welcome aboard. Another Australian. It seems to be mostly adults in Australia that end up here. And with an adult diagnosis to boot. The Australian education and medical Systems the 80’ missed so many of us. If we weren’t causing chaos we where under the radar.
