I think for my husband the ADD has greatly compounded his CSA related issues. I feel really bad for him as he feels very frustrating that there are all these things that are "wrong" with him. But there have been a lot of people who apparently had ADD/ADHD and they did things that changed life...Thomas Edison, Albert Eistein,etc...
The worst part of ADD is an inability to finish projects that he starts. It's a terrible cycle. Then he feels so overwhelmed...he can't finish them. Then he doesn't want to start another...and so it goes on and on.
Do meds help with this?
