I have never used WebMD before so I don't know exactly how this works, but I have a questions for anyone who can give me any answers. I have recently been diagnosed with adult ADHD and about 12 years ago I was diagnosed with bi-polar. My question is what is the difference between these 2 disorders??? Being diagnosed with bi-polar so long ago I completely understand it, but the ADHD part of things I do not understand. I am seeing a new doctor and she truly believe's that this is what I have, but how can anyone even a doctor be sure???? Please anyone with ANY answers I would greatly appreciate the help thank you ahead of time!!!!View Thread
Wow I realize I wrote this post a very long time ago, but I just need to say thank you for what you wrote. The key differences that you wrote about truly makes sense to me. This is the first time that I've actually understood the difference between the two. I'm definitely going to have to rethink everything I thought about my bi-polar. Thank you Ms.PeraView Thread
