Spanish guy, who likes open source software and has just discovered the fediverse (as of 28th of April, 2022). I like video games, and indie and retro music. I’m a student. I’m officially diagnosed with ADHD and ASD since January, 2023.

This profile is from a federated server and may be incomplete. Browse more on the original instance.

Ignacio,

Retro games (console & computer), indie games and open source games for the win, absolutely.

Ignacio,

I don’t think that tankies are the real issue. Obviously they’re an issue, but the real issue is that mods/admins allow them to post and comment as they please, and they don’t remove any of their posts and comments, and they even don’t ban them for good.

Ignacio,

I got harassed by tankies even after pointing them out that I have ADHD and ASD. That was months ago, when I was commenting from time to time on a lemmy.ml community. And mod did nothing, obviously 🤷‍♂️

Ignacio,

Wow, thanks a lot, Mike, you always have to mess everything up.

Does anyone know good and especially cheap therapists who do online therapy for ADHD?

Hello. I was diagnosed with ADHD one year ago already (I was 35 back then), but since then I’m only with medical treatment, in other words, with medication. This medication can keep my ADHD symptoms under control, at a degree. But it does absolutely nothing against my executive dysfunction and my focus issues, and I don’t...

Ignacio,

I’m assuming that you know about SOCIEDAD ESPAÑOLA DE PSICOLOGÍA CLÍNICA – ANPIR and their directory, but just in case: www.anpir.org/…/profesionales_avanzado.php

Thank you. I’ve only found one psychologist near my town, and he doesn’t even treat ADHD on adults. Only on children and teenagers. Either way, being in Spain I can assure you that price would be astronomical for my wallet.

About the other link, I’m looking at it. There are a couple of psychologists from Singapore, but I need to be sure that they treat ADHD on adult population, and I don’t even know how the price is per session there.

Ignacio,

I don’t have any insurance, only for dental treatments. For everything else I’m under the Social Security.

Ignacio,

Creo que un psiquiatra, independientemente de si es sanidad pública o consultorio privado, no debería comportarse así, dada la fragilidad de los pacientes que acuden para precisamente tratar esa fragilidad. Pero te cuento: fui a pedir derivación a mi médico de cabecera en noviembre del 2022. Me dieron cita con una psicóloga clínica para enero del 2023, y luego de eso una cita con una psiquiatra en marzo del 2023. Dada mi urgencia (estaba queriendo preparar oposiciones a funcionario), no quise esperar y fui a un consultorio privado. Comenté mi asunto, y me recetaron medicación. Funcionaba, pero no como yo quería, así que me la cambiaron, y sí que se notaba, de no hacer nada en todo el día a estudiar casi todo el día. De ahí se confirmó que efectivamente yo tenía TDAH. Luego en la seguridad social me quitaron ese estimulante por problemas legales, y volví a la medicación original. Y con esta sigo.

Ahora intento obtener terapia psicológica en algún despacho privado para manejar o superar esa disfunción ejecutiva, y poder hacer cosas sin depender de café o té o lo que sea que pueda tomar.

No diré nombres de medicamentos ni nada, ni tampoco diré nada que vaya contra las normas de esta comunidad. Solo te deseo mucha suerte, y ojalá que consigas ese diagnóstico en la seguridad social.

Ignacio,

My biggest complain about Threadiverse (Lemmy/Kbin pages) since I came is that there is too much content from US, both posts and comments, and almost no content from other countries, except for UK. But no content from Portugal, Spain, Italy, Poland, Germany (only in German on feddit.de), and so on.

Reddit had that problem too, but on r/europe at least I could read several news posts every day, even with translations in the comment section. Here everything is about Musk, Trump, DeSantis, FCC, Governor of Virginia, Governor of California, Governor of Iowa, SCOTUS, POTUS, CNN, Fox, Jon Stewart…

I have no other complains. But this one is getting me tired of Lemmy/Kbin, because I have almost no place to interact on.

Ignacio,

Maybe we, or anyone, should create an instance called “lemmywithout.us” or “kbinwithout.us”, in a similar fashion to this magazine.

Ignacio,

I just hope that the IPO backfires, or that users suddenly realise how shitty that webpage is and they leave.

Ignacio,

Lemmy devs are jerks

Worse. They’re tankies.

Ignacio, (edited )

There is a gaming community, but I would like to see a retrogaming community, to discuss and share photos and videos about old/retro games, like Spectrum, NES, SNES, MS-DOS…

Ignacio,

Doom 2 is my most favourite game, being Doom Eternal my second most favourite one. I’ve never played Doom 3, I’ve barely touched Doom 2016, and Doom is meh without the super shotgun or the pain elementals.

Gzdoom is the source port I use to play Doom games. It has lots of configurations, you can use tons of mods, and freelook & no autoaim are a delight.

By the way, I upload regularly Doom 2 videos on my HardLimit (Peertube) channel.

Ignacio,

Nutomic and dessalines aren’t exactly brilliant programmers or project managers, and their presence is more of a hindrance than a help at this point.

That’s absolutely right.

Ignacio,

As a person afraid of death, I like hearing stories like this one…

Well, not really afraid of death, but more like afraid of not existing any more. Like not experiencing anything at all ever again. That’s why NDEs give me some hope, either another realm, or reincarnation, or whatever except nothingness.

Ignacio,

I managed to study 2 hours yesterday. It seems that atomoxetine works. But it doesn’t feel very effective, because I planned to study 8 hours, and a wild YouTube video appeared during my break. And today I’m doing nothing productive at all.

Medication works, but it doesn’t work in the way I want, like methylphenidate did.

Ignacio,

You’re very lucky you can change to an stimulant. I’m not so lucky because I was diagnosed as an adult, so I’m not allowed to take stimulants in Spain. Besides, stimulants work for half a day, more or less, and can’t be taken every day.

Ignacio,

It’s OK, I won’t complain (yet :P ). The problem was more the time when I take medications. Both Concerta and atomoxetine, I took them at breakfast, let’s say between 7 and 8. Concerta wore off at 18, 19 or 20, it depended on the day, but sometimes I needed more time to do my stuff, until 22, and I felt upset because of that.

Atomoxetine starts fully working after weeks or months. But it works for 24 hours, so I can control when I start and when I stop doing my stuff.

Besides, I didn’t take Concerta during weekends, which was good at that moment, but not always. Being a student has some circumstances. I stopped taking that pill in March, when I started atomoxetine.

Ignacio,

I had a competitive service exam last Sunday. I think I passed it, but I don’t know yet, until the publication of the provisional official results after some weeks. That’s the good news.

The bad news is that I’ve been bullied by two tankies over two comments I posted on lemmy.ml, and I’m so upset that I don’t even know what to do or how to deal with it. Life fucking sucks, really.

Ignacio,

Hi, Elmo Muskrat. Why don’t you stop playing too much Call of Duty and instead you go to Russian occupied territories in Ukraine to see how Ukrainians are living and being treated? Just a little tiny suggestion, as small as your brain. You’re welcome.
