I thought I had ADD a couple of years ago and was sent to a clinical social worker who diagnosed me with PTSD after hearing about my childhood. My mother was emotionally and physically abusive. He also stated that because I had a college degree (Associates) that it was highly unlikely that I had ADD because I obviously could focus. I believe wholeheartedly that I have PTSD but I would not give up on the ADD issue and was finally diagnosed by another doctor 2 weeks ago. Is it common to have PTSD/depression, anxiety and ADD? Has anyone also been told they couldn't have ADD because they have a college degree? I just want to know if this has happened to someone else and hear about how your situation panned out.
