I am a little frustrated - I've been trying to get some help for what I suspect is adult ADD, and I keep on hitting dead ends. I've asked my regular doctor, a psychiatrist, and a few more people in the mental health field (a counsellor and a social worker) and never seem to get an answer on what to do. Because I am also depressed, there was often the response of "let's fix your depression first, and worry about that later". I was once directed towards the ADHD clinic of Toronto, (in Ontario, Canada) but that seems to cost some considerable money to get help there. Since I do have attention problems I often forget/have trouble following up with more in depth investigations, and stop trying to get in touch if no one emails/phones me back. I know this is my own fault, but because this is part of the attention problem I don't know how to correct this.
Is it not possible to get help/get assessed as an adult with ADD without having the monetary funds? Or should I just give up the chase? I keep on hearing of those who've managed to get diagnosed as an adult, so I expected it to be an easier task than it has turned out to be.
Any hints or guidance would be appreciated, thank you :)
