That is a good quiestion.......Sometimes I wonder myself if I have ADD......Alot people ask me if I do but I always say anxiety.......
my family doctor recently had me see a therapist for further diagnosis but while i was waiting she had me on meds for bipolar, it turns out i am highly ADD. if you think you might be i would suggest seeing someone specifically trained in the feild.
i was diagnosed with anxiety years ago, not only was i later diagnosed with hypothyroid but with ADHD as well so yes in my opinoin ADHD mimics bipolar 100%
anxiety and depression are two side effects from ADD. i know i have ADD and as a adult i have never been treated for it- just have to try to focus that much harder. i'm currently on meds for anxiety and depression and i'm wondering if i'm starting backwards. should i be getting treament for the ADD first and then see if the anxiety and depression continue.
