ADHD in Florida
Need Help in Pensacola
I am a 66 year old woman living in Pensacola and am having trouble finding help with what I believe to be adult ADD. My personal physician laughed at me and said she doesn’t believe it exists in adults. I’ve tried psychiatrists who want me to be evaluated by a psychologist but the ones in Pensacola only see children for this condition. I saw a neurologist who said he didn’t know anything about adult ADD and wanted me to have a lot of medical tests - EEG, MRI etc. My entire day is a mess and I don’t know what to do. I’ve been taking Synaptal with no results so I drink coffee all day. This is a family condition which I believe I’ve had since I was a child. What can I do to remain sane?
