I have been on medication for ADHD for a long while. In fact, I hardly remember a time I was off of it besides last summer (to see if I would do well without it). The more I think back and relate to now, there is one thing that has been bothering me. Can ADHD include aspects of OCD without actually having OCD?
Ever since I was nine, I've had various weird tendencies. Up until I was 10, I'd constantly clear my throat because I felt like I absolute had to. Then, I move to snorting. Just, snorting up until sixth grade around age 12 but for some reason, it went away. I haven't had anything like that in a while but now, I have a compulsion to wrinkle my nose. If not that, roll my eyes upward as if I was 'stretching the muscle'. Though neither are harmful, the eye movement is inducing more headaches than I already have. I'm not particularly worried about this, but it bugs me from time to time. It seems to happen more when I'm unoccupied. I'm back on medicine again. Have been since the end of freshman year. I don't know why I'm doing this but I really have wondered if it was part of the whole ADHD thing or if it's just in my head.
