My husband has ADD. He also at times (when experiencing high stress) goes through behavior like this. He can’t take his Adderol because he has a very addictive personality and takes way more than he should. A close friend of mine specializes in things like this and has helped him. She actually holds teleconferences on Wednesdays. If you are interested let me know, I will send you some info. Good luck!

I do I am 35 and have had bipolar disorder (manic Depression) my whole life. I am fine with treatment and live very much a normal life. You are not alone and need to find a doctor that you feel comfortable with to help you . Psychotherpy helped me. Don’t be afraid to ask for help it is right around the corner and you will feel better and CAN feel better I promise!
Good Luck Kimba;)
