As mentioned above, flooding isn't just anger/rage outbursts.

It can also be anger or frustration turned inwards resulting in depression.

And it probably has some effect on impulsivity.


Core symptoms of adhd are caused by the disorder, not by choices.

I had a lot of angry outbursts before getting on meds for anxiety.

I did not choose to be angry or to yell and slam doors.

It was like a flashover that happened in the blink of an eye.

There was no time to make choices, to think about a different response.
