He is cold and has no emotion or compassion to me. He is totally shut off and angry, to the point of being nasty and disrespectful. In a matter of hours or days, he completely comes out of this and returns to either a normal state or slightly vacant but happy with the world. He hardly ever takes responsibility for the times he is nasty, saying he doesnt remember or blaming it on me, or being down. Has anyone else had experience of these severe abusive mood cycles?
WHat makes you think this is adhd? I am not saying you cant have crippling depression with adhd but what you are describing sounds like a mood disorder of some kind. I am not a doctor and can only go on what you have shared here but he definitely needs to see a doctor asap. The fact that he doesnt remember these episodes or blames it on you does not remind me of adhd.
