Re: PTSD vs ADHD poll

I wonder if would be fair to say ADHD is a type of PTSD?

But, in order to have PTSD you have to have suffered some kind of trauma right? ADHD cant be THE trauma.

In many circumstances, being born with a more sensitive emotional temperament can be chronically distressful everyday, day after day.

great point sarah

I've thought this about myself often

i remember times as a kid when i experienced emotions at a more conscious cognitive level, not a lot of memories but some. the emotions were so powerful , so overwhelming , so intense they were frightening

I wonder if that put me into mostly permanent parasympathetic state like PTSD

I still have poor emotional control, but since my mid teens, emotions have become just strong uncomfortable bodily sensations that i have difficulty differentiating a lot of the time
