Mum's Just Get to Feel Like Shit for 10 Years?

I was supposed to be interviewing Shantelle on misdiagnosis but we went OFF TOPIC hardcore. I've kept the audio because it's a rant about Mum life that I have with friends at pick up/drop off.

Topics covered:

- Shantelle's GP was blown aware on her disclosure of the self hatred that comes to ADHD.

- Why is it that when a Mum goes to the GP or seeks help she is just told she has post natal depression rather than tested for anything else?

- Should we overhaul the Australian education system?

- Why is the process to get medication for ADHD so bloody unfriendly to ADHD people 

- Shantelle's misdiagnosis story and how anti depressants didn't work for her.

- Should we medicate our kids? (Jane and Shantelle's personal opinions)

- Meeting ourselves and our kids where we are at THAT day - not where society thinks we should be

**I wasn't planning on publishing this audio so Shantelle and I have been swearing like sailors throughout and when thinking about medication you should always consult your treating professional**


Please if you have some tips send me a VM and I'll play it next episode or send me a DM.
