Re: ADD and Depression, how to tell the difference...

In reply to ADD and Depression, how to tell the difference..., posted by Janice on October 21, 1999, at 14:08:48

I am trying to figure this out. As I wrote above, my psychopharmocologist said in my most recent appointment that he thinks I have ADHD. He was vague as to why, and not real committed to the idea, maybe just musing. Anyway, I have been thinking about it a lot since. I think I have concluded that I don't have ADHD but that many of the symptoms of my depression and anxiety overlap with those of ADHD. Both really do interfere with how we regulate our attention, mood, effort, alertness, etc. For me, I think it is the mood disorder family and not the attention disorder family. If one has both, the overlap is larger, and it can be hard to know where the boundaries are.
