i mean... i'm kinda filling out a form right now dude, give me a minute first
@kat thinking about how the guy assessing me for ADHD (over a video call in 2020) just commented once he'd actually finished asking me stuff, that "you literally can't even sit still on this call"
@kat And to add insult to injury, in my experience doctors... don't read forms, make up their own mind of what they're going to do, and will ignore common sense to chase a ghost issue they imagine is the 'real problem' -- and as the patient, will just expect you to allow them to do so.
(Needless to say, it is one reason I should probably get more medical services but due to horrible past experiences with doctors probably will remain doing just the minimum...)
@kat this form looks like it's a set up for conversion therapy. legit like, trying to get you to admit to using "drugs" because you drink stuff with caffeine in it and blaming your ADHD symptoms as "addiction" and trying to get you to align with their agenda or some shit.
i really hope for this to not be the only method you have of getting treatment
@Liizerd yeahhhh it's a lot of the same kind of gatekeeping i had to deal with before i could start HRT back before informed consent was more of a thing
on the plus side, i'm a lot better at dealing with gatekeeping now
