Just been diagnosed with dyspraxia and discalculia aged 53 by the University ed' psych'- also she suspected adhd but would not diagnose - said I would need to see my gp, does anyone have any advice to impart? - My sister and niece are both adhd/oppositional disorder - my brother suspected Asperger/autistic or adhd (undiagnosed) and my mother and father suspected adhd too.. I struggle with extreme anxiety that fluctuates - I am on a mild dose of sertraline for about 2 years 50mg - want to come off but I know my brain was less organised before the drug- I still struggle with focus and find doing my part time course stressful even though I am already getting 'A' results in term 2 pushing myself to actually do the tasks I am set is exhausting and my memory does not help! Any words of wisdom would be welcome- thanks!
