ADHD is fascinating (and a pia if you have it) because it can present symptoms of anxiety and depression, even some emotional lability. People often underestimate it, "oh you're just spacey. If you just concentrate...."

I recall a discussion on ADHD overlapping with borderline symptoms and bipolar. Not borderline personality disorder unless coping behaviors are dysfunctional. (All IMO)
