This may be a little of topic, but I’m intrigued by your flying activities; it’s something I have always wanted to do myself. But dealing with the depression and anxiety undiagnosed ADHD for most of my adult life (I’m 57) there was no way I could have even dreamed about working towards a private pilot’s license then. But now, why not?

In checking Transport Canada’s website, it is not specifically spelled out as to what mental health conditions prevent certification. What has been your experience?

What am I up against if I wanted to work toward a private pilot’s license with ADHD/Depression/Anxiety (All of which has been greatly controlled with meds and therapy)?

This may be a topic we need to take off line. But then it may be of interest to others to learn that life can go on with ADHD and we still need to have fun.
