Re: Flooding - is it really caused by ADHD?

You'd think if it was a core symptom that every single one of us have then you'd see flooding, mood swings, etc - things related to emotional dysregulation as part of the DSM symptoms.

Is this just one "expert" says or is this something that is overall accepted. I also had thought some things Barkley said were garbage as well. I don't think just cause one or some experts think something, makes it true.
ADHD is a spectrum disorder. Very few have all of the symptoms, much less to
the same degree.

At this time, the DSM-5 lists emotional dysregulation as a separate disorder:
DMDD or Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder.

Emotional dysregulation may also play a part in impulsivity and depression.

And no, it's not just one expert saying this is a core feature of adhd ...
