Someone on the Internet is wrong!

I already have imposter syndrome and have been considering whether to get my child assessed and then I come across this. It makes me so angry. I know people are entitled to their opinion but I spent years struggling and would have loved to have been diagnosed earlier and hate to think I would get my child assessed for extra money rather than because it would make his life easier.

So much misinformation and ignorance on that thread. Twitter is a bloody cesspit!

Don't let the opinion of people who have no idea what they are talking about put you off seeking a diagnosis and support for your child. Good luck with it - ignore the naysayers!

Empty vessels make the most noise...

Another Mumsnet classic, you can't argue with stupid...applies there as well.

God forbid anyone should listen to the experts, I mean what do doctors know after a decade of study compared to someone who read something on the internet... (Sarcastic)

Let's deny my child/grandchild medication prescribed by a Dr because of some random idea I have in my head.

They're just full of ignorant shit. If I was that stupid I'd have to go and live amongst a herd of goats and the goats would be more intelligent.

Another Twitter thread full of ignorant people - don't waste your energy reading their tweets. I've just read some - it's incredibly sad, but nothing will open their minds. Leave them to it. Block if necessary.
