View Full Version : I think I have O.d.d.

01-09-08, 02:40 PM
Hello I am new to this forum
I think I have o.d.d. I am 21
I still live at home with parents and am looking for a job
My mother and I always fight
I just found out about o.d.d. last night after a friend told me he had it I did research. I fit it. I can't be dinoused cuz my mother will start a fight if I mention it. I don't like psychs. they make me cry
I have always been picked on in school and had special help since 3rd grade cuz I was slow at learning things. I dont do drugs. But I cant control myself when a fight starts. I dont know why I do the things I do. I think I will be fine once I am away from here. But that wont be for awhile yet. I love to help people it makes me feel good. I have a boyfriend of 2 months he has a mild case of aspergers.He makes me feel safe like he will never hurt me. All of my other relationships have failed.My mother dosent think I can handle being with him cuz I wont be able to handle his probs. But before we even started datting I knew about it and did research he is a great guy I never want to leave him. I am pretty sure I can handle him I just cant handle my mother the way she is the way I am. What can I do to get better with out being dinoused?Where can I find support? Is there any one out there like me? Oh and I have read O.d.d does not exist in adults. But I was never dinoused as a child.

First off i would like to welcome you to the site..
Another there is people like you and there support for you
My two cent opinion is when you get a job and money move out.
You and your mother i don't think can live together. Also i recommend to get elevation from you doctor to see if they can diagnose you

Your Mother will "start a fight if you mention it"? What?

A child raising a health concern should not cause a parent to 'start a fight'. *gasp*

Is it really just you who has the ODD (oppositional defiant disorder) or PD (personality disorder type symptoms)?

[Being 21, you are an adult now, so the categories change. ODD is a kid thing, IIRC.]

Maybe you're not the only one with a 'problem'?

Talk to your Doc.

Do you have ADHD?

This thread is 3 years old and they only made one they probably won't respond.

The head nurse at our rural,non-profit community mental health

center,who's also a good and trusted friend, said to me this week,

"You know Robert, I think you're an adult Conduct Disorder."

My response, before lapsing into convulsions was, "Okay, so like

how long have you know me now (answer: 25+ yrs.) ?"

Then I was like .."That was etched in stone by the 7th grade." :D

In truth, it's not entirely accurate, but it doesn't matter, because

it's good to poke fun at myself.

i started to learn more about O.D.D after watching dr.barckley video last night; he claims "ADHD causes ODD" so i was curious waht the heck is odd?
here is waht i found'
"In children, the rebellious behavior of ODD is directed towards authority, whether it be parents or teachers. If it's not cured or resolved, a child with ODD can later develop Conduct Disorder (CD) as an adult

Read more: Oppositional Defiance Disorder in Adults | ("

Common features of Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) include excessive, often persistent anger, frequent temper tantrums or angry outbursts, and disregard for authority. Children and adolescents with this disorder often annoy others on purpose, blame others for their mistakes, and are easily annoyed. In addition, these young people may appear resentful of others and when someone does something they don't like they often take revenge on them.<SUP id=cite_ref-0 class=reference>[1] (</SUP>
In order for a child or adolescent to qualify for a diagnosis of ODD these behaviors must cause considerable distress for the family and/or interfere significantly with academic or social functioning. Interference might take the form of preventing the child or adolescent from learning school material or making friends, or placing him or her in harmful situations. These behaviors must also persist for at least six months.

I can tell you from what I've seen in classrooms for years ODD and ADHD have a strong correlation. In fact I think it's really uncommon to find someone with ADHD that does not have another comorbid psyche issue.
