All of this was true of me as well. Depression hit me at a very young age, and most definitely was responsible for the symptoms you describe. Your doctor might be right.
There are some good psychometric tests that can tease out true ADD/ADHD. Perhaps you should be evaluated using one.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
