is any of it situational ?
It could be "environmental" , maybe you have too much to deal with at the moment...
I wonder about sensory issues If you have them and are abled to moderate them... or perhaps are gettingh a tad overwhelmed by a high sensoryneural load ?
In any case, you should see you doctor...

ADD and depression do have similar symptoms. If you have ADD and then add on a dose of depression the symptoms can combine and it can make you even more forgetful.
I know this is going to sound horribly backwards but I can't stay depressed or sad any more than I can stay happy. I just sort of bounce between the two and that passage is interrupted by things I want to do. Like makes stuff and sometimes break stuff.
I don't know if this helps but being able to handle any situation is a hallmark of ADD. For me pain last about as long as pleasure does. Both fleeting. Mayber you are blessed/cursed the same way.
If you are having a really hard time and are considering hurting yourself to stop the anxiety or pain. Please please please see your doctor and tell him/her whats up. They can help.
My thoughts are with you man!
