Thought I had the perfect fit with a neuropsych ADHD specialist and I had written a coherent e-mail describing me. They are booked out until April and want a referral from a primary doctor (whom I saw once and who was just awful). I need this assessment for my own mental health but who is going to really care since I am 68? I was flabbergasted by the request for a referral, since I offered to pay cash. Just kind of “stuck” for the moment. Is the assessment really worth it?
I could use a little lift and focus from medication but I don’t want to get slotted into just the depression/anxiety disorder definition. Been there, done that, doesn’t answer my questions about not only me but all of my siblings and my mother, who, by the way, was a nightmare to live with for the first 18.
Comment away, I’ll take anything at this point.
