Here you need a diagnosis for ADHD to get it. It's a cultural difference with thee US. Doctors tend to be, of course, sceptical of the diagnosis but some are willing to bodgie one up if they think it will really help. My psych though is (justifiably) uncomfortable with polypharmacy. We just say to each other that we live under a Methodist dispensation, that humanity is f*ck*d, and that it is all a very sorry business. He has already written agomelatine, Valium and gabapentin. So I don't like to ask.
The unlamented Labor Government that was recently booted out was contemplating making illegal a new batch of plants (Leopard trees, wattles, angels trumpet). My son commented that the expenses involved in dreaming this up would have come from a fund designed to help combat drug abuse.
I while away the hours reading "Bloodlands". It would make your hair curl. It is oddly relaxing, I don't know why. After that, I think, all we are here to do is to make each others' lives a little better.
Tonight I will go and hear a Buddhist lecture on Buddha Nature and (no doubt) the origin of suffering. Half a Valium and a stiff drink to get me there.
