Hi from oz.

Hey all,

New to these forums, 37 and was only diagnosed with adhd last week. Just started on dex today, not sure if i liked it or how i feel about it. Spent the whole day subdued and emotionally raw. Might not be a bad things just a big change to adjust to.

Have had a previous high functioning autism diagnosis which ive been working through for a while and only recently gotten over the stigma and "came out with" it. Gotta say this second diagnosis has really tipped my world on its head. I was asking for help and a change... so i guess i got what i was seeking - like they say, be careful what you ask for lol.

Raced motorbikes professionally for years, started when i was 4. Always seeking fun, but have reached a point in my life where this is taking over. Relationships are hard to maintain, feel like people dont get me at all, and have been out of work for 10 years on a disability pension. Started a degree this year following a passion and hoping to meet some new like-minded people only to find out im literally old enough to be everyone in the class's dad. Needless to say my sense of self-worth is low right now and are feeling pretty lost.

Would really appreciate it if anyone knows of ADHD support groups in South East QLD, AU... more specifically Brisbane or Gold Coast.

Anyway pleased to be here
Luke
