  • Mom of TS son tryign to get help with her own ADHD symptoms...

    Hello, I have a son with TS+. Mason will be 9 in a couple weeks and was diagnosed with TS when he was 5.

    During my journey with my son's diagnosis, I began to see myself differently. I noticed that I too had difficulty paying attention and focusing. I am very diorganized and I seem to be thinking of 100 things at once. I have anxiety issues and have taken some meds for my anxiety. I really feel that this is starting to take over my life and I am constantly trying to cope. I seem to loose everything that I touch and cannot complete tasks at work. I start 15 tasks at once and try and jumble them around my brain. It really gets exhausting. I am concidering medication...something like Strattera so that I can get help with the anxiety at the same time. This has been issues I have had to deal with all my life. It just seems to be taking over and I am so tired of fighting it.

    My problem is trying to get a doctor to help me. They will give me something for the anxiety, but it does not help with all the other issues. I am hoping someone can tell me of a ADHD clinic where I can get formally diagnosed and treated without going through this hassle. I live 1 hour north of Toronto. I would have no problem travelling to Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton or Barrie.

    If anyone knows of a good doctor or clinic, that won't take a year to access I would really appreciate the feedback.
