Is it ADHD or is it Bipolar 2 Hypo-Mania?
 
ADHD and Bipolar type 2 (Hypo-Mania) are very similar in their symptoms. I was diagnosed with ADHD 7 years ago and just diagnosed with Bipolar type 2 a few months ago.

How do you know you do not actually have ADHD, but Bipolar 2 instead? By the way, you do not need to have major depression to be Bipolar.

I have both and treated the bipolar first. For me, a manic phase isnt a routine all day everyday sort of thing but untreated and even symptoms despite treatment is.
