I am sorry you had that experience/are having that experience.
Your Doctor was open, understood that ADHD is REAL and referred you to a group of Psychiatrists who were to evaluate you for ADHD and treatment for it. It seems as if the best option now is to either:
1. Call/return to your Doctor and request another referral.
2. Do some research, find a friend or look up on CHADD’s website reputable Psychiatrists in your area who do good evaluations for ADHD and medication.
Don’t listen to under educated people who tell you that ADHD does not exist. It does. There is research, brain scans and a DSM 1V diagnosis to prove it. Not to mention the tons of posts on THIS SITE ALONE of people that don’t know each other who all share similar experiences and symptoms.
I wish you a qualified Psychiatrist who recognizes the truth of the existence of ADHD and some answers for your own challenges soon:)
I am finally being treated for my ADHD because of my son’s diagnosis.
It has been beneficial!
With warmth and good thoughts for the future.REPORT ABUSE
