Manage episode 307949696 series 2913393
ADHD is NOT well understood by most doctors.
I know, shocking, right? We often expect our doctors to be the "know all, be all, end all" of medical information, and as much as they want to help us... they just don't get the in-depth training necessary on every single area... And ADHD is one of them.
This Q&A session covers my top recommendations when it comes to prepping for an ADHD Diagnosis appointment.
Don't get me wrong, I truly believe most doctors want to help us and their hearts are in the right place.
I also believe it's important to be our own advocates by making sure we understand our diagnosis and we're prepared to ask the right questions.
The question, "How should I prepare for my ADHD Diagnosis appointment?" comes up a lot so I thought it was time I shared my two cents on the subject.
Don't worry, Successful Mama. The info in this episode will help you feel confident talking with your doctor about your options and what the right path FOR you will be on your ADHD journey.
