ADD vs. Avoidant Personality/Social Anxiety

My counselor is pretty certain that I have ADD despite my stubborn insistence that I have mild Avoidant Personality Disorder.

I’ve recently complained to her about things getting worse; me focusing so much less and not even understanding much of anything anymore.

Still, I didn’t believe her until reading this (which frankly sounds just like Avoidant Personality Disorder to me.) I sat here and nearly cried as I read this.


That is an interesting article.  Sometimes we can have two or more diagnoses.  And sometimes they have some similar or same symptoms.
