View Full Version : Does ADHD have anything to do with obssessions?

I am just interested to know about if there is any link or effect that ADHD might have on obsessions or maybe it's just called hyperfocus but I think this particular example isn't really hyperfocus.
I do hyperfocus but also around PMT time, I get really regretful over my wedding dress (it turned out very plain and I was very disappointed). The rest of the time, I can accept it and look at all the many positives in my life, but when it starts to hit again I have to go thru it and it REALLY eats into me, it plagues me nonstop for those few days/week.

I have never known where to get help about it but I really don't want to have to put up with it every month for the rest of my life.

So I just thought I'd ask. Thanks!

What I know is that one ADHD trait is "too much or too little" in everything.
We're enormously happy, enormously sad, enormously interested, enormously bored.

Thanks I love the way you put it. Next time it hits, I will think of that and see if that helps me get it back in perspective.
