hi

i dont know

i live in perth though. i KNOW people and know OF people who have adhd.... but no support groups


i'm having a hard time finding a dr.. well not so much finding a dr, b ut making an appt and keeping it. i got a referal last year and made an apt, then changed it, then the dr took sick leave and they said to go to anohter dr, and then i made an apt there, then i cancelled it. here i am a year later, no better off and possibly worse off, still trying to figure out "how to have adhd". :faint:

Have you tried speaking to a specialist in the field?? They tend to be a little expensive, but might be of help. If you contact Hollywood Private Hospital and ask them, there is a specialist there, I can't divulge names out on the web though. But they should be able to help.

:p try www.ladswa.com.au (http://www.ladswa.com.au) they have a list of docs, and I am guessing Lex and I use the same one at the same place, on the 2nd floor:D

LADS was around a few years ago, think they're in Subi. They have a list of Doctors that you can go and see (at least they did last time I checked a few years ago. Failing that, drop into 15 Colin St West Perth coz there are 3 docs there that treat ADD.

Curtin uni disability support office sent me to see a doc in East Perth because the one they usually send people to was not available to me (loooong story there). He used to be at 15 Colin Street but was at Cambridge Hospital in Wembley a couple of years ago. Thank goodness I took someone who I knew from my old work who has ADD & could see it in me. I think that what he could add made the difference in whether the doc trialled me on dex or not, which has come as a godsend to my situation
