Thankee kindly.

What that looks like is....ADHD is generally even-tempered children with too much energy, where BP is longer-term bad-temperedness.
Does that sound like a reasonable condensation?

...So I was walking along today, talking to my friend...just, flip flip flip flip from topic to topic and idea to idea and there wasn't even a proper conversation going on cuz I couldn't focus long enuf to hold one...

I was diagnosed with major depression around 1994-1995 and I'm wondering if I should be on something for ADD as well. I've sorta always blamed the problems on the depression, but it might be easier to deal with the depression if I had a little more control over my concentration. :/
