For 49 years I have lived with one of the hardest things. Untreated Adhd. I wasn’t diagnosed until I was 49 and then I have spent three months syr with my mental health.
To the point that I August, I contemplated suicide or at least harming myself. Thankfully my Gp called me the Sunday before the August Bank Holiday.
They were so helpful and spoke with me for around 30 minutes. They saved my life. The outcome of this was a referral back so I can at least try medication. This week I had an assessment to see what my needs are.
For the first time I was completely honest, I told them of my struggles and how close I came to suicide.
Back in July I was referred to the local talking Therapies team. I’m still waiting it has been almost three months.
So I have had to struggle with mental health issues, coming to terms with a life changing diagnosis and the debilitating affects of severe untreated Adhd.
