Hello ) so I have an appointment coming up with a psychiatrist. I am 20 years old, and I think I have ADHD. I have never kept a job, never got done with what I started, impulsive, trouble concentration, temper, and etc. However, my parents dont know im going to a psychiatrist....bc they dont approve of it. My brother was mentioned in school as well that he needed to be put on medication but my parents refused. My thing is that im scared to pay all this money for the frist appointment, and I wouldn't get what I came for(medication). Does anyone have any clue what does psychiatrist do with a 20 year old girl, who is going to see a psychiatrist without the will of her parents, and if they would prescribe medication on the first visit?
