@daedalus It IS hugely fucked, apparently all over the country. I shouldn’t consider myself “lucky” if a doctor acknowledges that ADHD is real.
Although I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that this nation of cops seems to think the whole thing is just slackers looking for excuses…
@Tarale ayup. And I’m lucky because I can largely manage and have a lot of privilege and resources and whatnot. There are people much worse off than me and I shudder to think how they cope with this stupid fuckery. Not well, by all reports.
@daedalus I do, and it’s not. I consider myself extremely lucky that I, well, lucked into a psychiatrist who actually took the idea seriously. I know most people don’t, and then there’s very little you can actually do about it. Same for autism if you’re an adult. I keep being told I should get help through the NDIS, if only I could prove to them that I do…
