Venting; A little over a year ago, I had a psychiatrist diagnose me with ADD with the possible H (I scored pretty high on the test, but not in a lot of the hyperactive areas), but because of my epilepsy she was afraid of prescribing a stimulant due to the possibility of lowering my seizure threshold or interactions with my Keppra, so she recommended going to an ADHD specialist but for whatever reason I couldn’t get her to give me a referral and absolutely none of the clinics around me are taking new patients without one. What’s more annoying is the psychiatrist was a temporary one from scoring high a “in danger to themself” questionnaire before a routine gynecology appointment (not suicidal, I am just very depressed and anxious 24/7 and it was bad enough to get contacted by an immediate therapist who got me a temp psychiatrist to prescribe some meds). I talked to my general doctor who said “only kids can develop ADHD” which, um, kids who don’t get diagnosed become adults you dolt. I know that I need to either keep up the pressure or find a new GD, but I just have no motivation/energy and when I do I’m fixated on some random thing so I forget to do the thing that will help long term. It’s a fun cycle.
