Re: Insecure - is this related to ADHD?

I was under the impression that ADHD was pretty well known for causing low self-esteem and insecurities over intelligence and socializing among other things. I could be wrong, though, as I'm still one of the newbies who doesn't know as much as they might like.

I haven't been officially diagnosed yet, but for what it's worth, I do get where you're coming from. I've been very positive lately but when I was younger I spent a good deal of time beating myself up. I think it's largely due to environmental factors, though I could be totally wrong. My parents were not terribly supportive, especially when I went to university. My wife is extremely supportive, even when I do really stupid things.

I still take the time to kick myself around occasionally. I think everyone does that from time to time, though.
