the thing is I don't really recall experiencing any of these symptoms in conjunction with a low mood .. I was reasonably happy as a kid, sporadic bullying not included ..
I have had psychometric testing done while responsive to an AD and it showed an incongruously low processing speed (bottom 20th percentile) and very poor executive functioning, which my psychologist at the time thought was highly indicative of ADHD.
