I am very aware I am only one of thousands across the web seeking help, and in that light I do not expect to hit my target, though any help will be received most gratefully indeed.
I have recently been diagnosed with ADHD. I am an adult now though I have suspected I might have this for the last 8 years - its taken me a long time to get around to investigating this - Ive since found I have probably had this since early teens. Its been both a revelation to get this diagnosis as well as depressing and hard emotionally as I look back and see all the ways it has impacted my life. Not saying I've had a terrible life; "there is always someone worse off than me", is something I always remind myself of to stay thankful, but this ADHD has been getting more chaotic over the last years and severely impacts my daily life in tasks small and large, so I'm happy I now have an answer for my 'messy life'. I am currently out of work, since my studies ended in 2017, since I made the choice to put my health before wealth when I realised I had mental health issues that needed to be addressed. So, here I am now with my diagnosis. Going forward then, I am looking forward to getting my treatment and getting my life back on track. However, my financial situation is going to make it very hard to afford my medication: I have just found out that they are not as cheap as paracetamol! *yikes* The cost will be around 86£ a month and so I have set-up this fund to help raise the cost for the first 6 months and hope by then improvements will lead me to a better job/finance situation.
I am thus here for funding to help with medication costs. I reiterate my grateful thanks for any help in this my cause. THANX /DARRYN xx
For those who have heard of ADHD but wish to find out more, here is a short summary and source.
ADHD is a highly genetic, brain-based syndrome that has to do with the regulation of a particular set of brain functions and related behaviors. These brain operations are collectively referred to as “executive functioning skills” and include important functions such as attention, concentration, memory, motivation and effort, learning from mistakes, impulsivity, hyperactivity, organization, and social skills. There are various contributing factors that play a role in these challenges including chemical and structural differences in the brain as well as genetics. (source: https://add.org/adhd-facts/)
Humour is also a good medication!
