hi! well i'm not a caregiver/certainly not a parent but may i suggest you start sharing your symptoms and how you got diagnosed and somewhere along the conversation i'm pretty sure they are going to ask you why are you telling them these things and that's going to be your hint to tell them that some of symptoms are visible with their children, it woudn't hurt if they would take a look into it,especially for the fact that ADHD cannot be treated but is managable with some help.View Thread
still envy you mstelly.atleast now you know and you have lots of resources their in the US and doctors that specializes on this condition. I am in the Philippines and i don't think we have same resources,machines,modules to use to do the diagnosis accurately.i envy all of you.i envy that you somehow gets your insurances cover a part for seeing a psychiatrist which is,as we know-not cheap! i'm 23 yrs old and just started to build my life, i don't have anything to spend just to see a doctor. well, i'm happy to find this community,atleast now i know i can say everything and people won't look at me funny.

Thank you, I'll check and see if we have that here in the Philippines. Having too little sleep gets me stressed out a lot. And the thing is, I always work night shifts which worsens everything. Having to sleep at day and work at night during weekdays then adjust during saturdays and sundays during rest days can be too much of a burden.View Thread
