> As amazing as it sounds I've had ADHD/ADD diagnosed the other day, in the UK.

Great news!

> Doctors here are much slower to catch on than in the states and many are sceptics so I went private. (400 + 600 in follow up appointments)

My NHS (junior) pdoc is so utterly useless I'm tempted to borrow some money and do the same myself. How many appointments did you have for that 1000? How did you go about finding a private pdoc?

What did the diagnosis involve, out of interest?

> So having spent years battling with difficulties doing anything, due to weakness in character (I thought), I feel like i'm being given the green light again - lives before were something other people had.

Awesome. Hope you get your life back.

> I need to start treatment right away and I'm guessing most people prefer adderall to ritalin, but I don't know if the jury's out on amph's deleterious effects on the brain.

Let us know which you get and how you get on!
