  1. Hi,

    My name is James, I’m a 35 year old Swedish Brit who moved to the UK about 2,5 years ago. I am both a Swedish and British national, so Getting here and living here haven’t been to hard on me.
    Except one for me, Major thing.

    About 5 years ago I got diagnosed with ADHD, Asbergers and Dystemia and I was getting medication like Citalopram for my depression.
    For my ADHD I first got Concerta which gave me a few sideffects like itching throat/coughing and other things. So I eventually jumped onto Ritalin which worked better but still had some side effects.

    After some studying online on ADHD forums and what not I read about Metamina (Dextroamph) and Adderall which most, or practically everyone said the same thing about, the side effects from Concerta which I had in common with many
    and with Ritalin didn’t apply as much for those medicines. I Then took this up with my Psychiatrist who where just about to get everything done with paperwork and what not to get me to try one of those medicines.

    Then I moved to the UK, and besides the quite easy conversion to UK, the rest, my disabilities haven’t bee as easy. I was worried when I moved here that my medication would be at risk, read up on it online and tried to find as much information
    as possible about how it would work, If i could continue the medication here in the UK. But it turned out to be harder then I had hoped for.

    It’s been a hard struggle my whole life not being aware of why everything has been so difficult, then I finally got diagnosed and tried medications which helped a whole lot, It made me feel like a normal human so to speak. I could actually
    concentrate, walk the dog and make music etc.

    I Registered at a GP and showed him a paper from my Psychiatrist in Sweden to confirm my diagnoses and medication plan, but instead I got referred to what seemed to be a completely new assessment.
    As I said earlier, it’s been a tough time for me to even get these in Sweden, It was a great relief when I did just to have to redo it all from square 1. Is this really how it has to or is suppose to be, living in EU and all?

    Is there any kind of help with communications and so forth to be found here, As in Sweden I had a personal hmmz what would it be called, like a Private solicitor but not really that dealt with those things. I’m having difficulties talking for myself
    and I’m I tend to easily pull back and push my problems or meetings ahead because of this, or not sort them out at all.

    As I mentioned, I did get a referral had to wait 1 year to get an appointment here in the UK, pretty much the same procedure as in Sweden, That took heavily on me first of all. Then I got the date and was getting ready, gathering energy and courage to
    get to that appointment. Then something happened that isn’t really easy on any person with these difficulties, All in a sudden I got a phone call with the Psychiatrist telling me there has been a reschedule of my set date. This made me worried as I didn’t know the town well enough or at all really, Had no idea where I was going, and it was quite far away from where I live. The first date was more fit for me as I would get accompanied by my girlfriend, she couldn’t really do it at this new date. And I didn’t speak up enough
    to tell them about this, which I have problems with as well.

    We did try to get there though, but heavy traffic and wrong GPS directions made it so we would’ve been several hours late so it got cancelled and I didn’t get a new appointment.

    Since then I’ve more or less given up, I don’t know how else to explain it but it’s too heavy to just think of redoing all of this again, it took years to do it the first time. And It feels like I’ve got my diagnoses already and shouldn’t have to go through that again.

    What can I do? Please help, I want to be able to study, get a drivers license, be a Family father and all that I know i was for that time i was on medication.

    I’ve got my full Journal from Sweden now printed out, that I had to collect in person from Sweden but it’s in Swedish, would that still be enough?

    Hope I’m sending this to the right place,


    I previously sent this as an Email to Addiss but I haven’t got a reply yet and it’s been about 6 months.
