  1. ADHD support/self-help group in Berlin

    Last time I checked, the Charite isn't taking any new patients at all. We found a doctor who speaks English at Vivantes Humboldt. https://www.vivantes.de/service/ihr-aufenthalt/psychiatrische-ambulanzen/
  2. The mum-and-bumps/playgroup now meets every Tuesday from 9.30-11.30 in the former café Maya & Callas, Markstr. 5, 13407 near U8-Franz-Neumann-Platz. There are plenty of toys, a nice big rug to crawl around on and a bring-and-share breakfast. Drop-ins are very welcome so please feel free to pop in!

  4. Wanting to build a "Tiny House"

    My husband and I are dreaming of a tiny house. We've got a great 2 room flat but even though it's at the bottom of current housing prices, it's getting to be too much for us. We want our monthly investment to go into something we can eventually pay off, but not in 35 years. Americans can build tiny homes of 200 or 300ft2 for under $10,000 in the States. We've been looking at what it costs to build in this country and it looks like at every step of the way there's a legally protected professional waiting to take a pound of flesh. We want to build the whole house for what normally would be the deposit on the loan. As far as I can gather, an architect is necessary to sign off on the design and get the necessary paperwork. We want to build a wood-framed house in Brandenburg of less than 40m2, no basement or even poured foundation, and ideally off grid in terms of power, water and waste so there's no Erschliessung, and do the construction work totally by ourselves. We'd get a garden house, but you can't live in them permanently. Are there any visionary architects out there willing to take up an experiment in low-cost housing? Or are there self-help groups to get through the planning, permit and inspection processes? The internet is full of info, but it's too much to navigate alone.
  5. Does anyone know of an English-speaking support group for ADD/ADHD adults in Berlin? I've found quite a few German ones but nothing English yet. If not, is there anybody out there with ADHD interested in starting something?
