Welcome to AADD-UK Talk
(Link to forum below, but please read the stuff before that first, especially if it is your first time.)
AADD-UK Talk is our online discussion forum where you can ask questions, and chat with others about ADHD and related matters. Information posted on the forum boards can support but not replace the relationship between you and your doctors or other healthcare professionals. And while it may inform your discussions and explorations of treatment options with your healthcare professionals, you should also always check with your doctors if you are considering changing treatment or medication.
We don’t really have rules for this forum (most of us don’t read them anyway) but since it is intended to be a supportive forum for adults affected by ADHD (including partners & spouses) we do ask that you respect the opinions of others and avoid arguments. And if you should come across the rare Troll (a user who deliberately posts an inflammatory message just to cause grief), please do not feed it by responding. Instead report it to one of the moderators who will deal with it.
You do not need to register in order to view and post messages.
Please be aware that this is a public forum and your postings are open for all to see.
And that’s an end to the formal stuff so come on in and meet us by clicking on the following words:
