Question AS Symptoms in ADHD context

Can anyone share expericence or lead me to information on how Asperger's would present itself in someone that also has ADHD? Some of the symptoms seem to be oposite from each other so I would be interested in learning more about this.

hi,


i was diagnosed with adhd, add and asperger syndrome almost three years ago.
(originally it was "adhd and add with autism spectrum traits, but since then the doctors have changed their mind - mainly because of the "interpersonal difficulties" i have...)

ahdhers - impulsive, "sloppy"...
aspies - rigid, pedantic...

contradictory?
sure!

i'm a sloppy, hippie-type bohemist who's slowly put surely trying to come to terms with the fact that i need *structure* in my everyday life to be able to "control"/"balance" both the adhd *and* the aspie side of my personality - because they're both part of who i am...
