It really is impossible to make a diagnosis on this information. It is obvious he has mood lability and irritability, but those symptoms go along with numerous conditions -- including depression. His love of computers certainly suggests withdrawal from interpersonal relations.

To be diagnosed with ADHD, symptoms have usually been present since a young age (before age 7 by DSM standards) -- was he disruptive, hyper, talkative as a child?

I think much more likely is dysthymia, major depressive disorder (mild to moderate severity), or even borderline personality.

You have to put your foot down about him seeing a ddoctor. Otherwise, your marriage and your children may suffer (not to mention you).
