@daedalus Same in SA. There’s 5 ADHD specialists, none of them are taking new patients, and honestly, there’s almost no psychiatrists in the state that are taking patients at all for anything. There’s no clear pathway to get an assessment, you just kind of “luck into it” if you manage to see a psychiatrist who is willing to consider it.
@Tarale it’s hugely fucked and I am already tilting at enough windmills because privileged fuckwits aren’t doing heir jobs I don’t have time to try fixing this shit too I am just so tired
@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…
@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…
