Oh, is this the Winterpeggers’ blog page? lol I’ve been out of province so long now I couldn’t make any recommendations to help you out but trashman is right. If your family MD knows you well at all they may feel confident enough to go ahead and at least get you started on meds (I’m assuming that’s why you want an official diagnosis).

When I mentioned this stuff to my family MD here in ON, she immediately pulled out a pamphlet on Adult ADHD. At least some of the family physicians are aware of it now and as Dr. J mentioned on the medication Webinar, family docs are well-trained enough to be the ones totally in control of the meds as long as their are no comorbidities to the ADD.

See if a talk with the family doctor can get something rolling. Good luck!
