ADD / ADHD vs. Guilt Driven Anxiety and Depression

Does Synaptol alleviate chronic anxiety, fear, insomnia, poor concentration, lethary and inattention if taken concurrently with an MOAI like Seratonin Re-uptake Inhibitor like SERZONE and TRANXENE? I take 150 mg. and 7.5 mg respectively each night. I believe I was likely misdiagnosed in 1987 as having "Obsessive, compulsive, perfectionistic personality traits along with chronic guilt, low self-esteem and a lack of a sustaining connection with God. I was convinced I had ADD at the time (from kindergarten through high school and all my life), but my psychiatrist back then insisted the treatment for HIS diagnosis was different, i.e. taking the MOAI and anxiety meds. I turned 60 recently, have been unemployed for 22 months and am terrified of setting myself up for failure once more, so having a tough time finding work. I saw a Psychologist last week and he thinks I have ADD or ADHD. I've read the book "Driven to Distraction" by Edward M. Hallowell, M.D. and John J. Ratey, M.D., and I can virtually relate to 90% of the symptoms case studies presented. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Trish O.

Comorbidity?

For the last few years, I've always thought that maybe my symptoms were associated with clinical depression and some sort of anxiety disorder. Now I'm thinking that perhaps I may actually have ADD/ADHD, since the symptoms I've been experiencing fit so smoothly. I've always been very obnoxious in class, though once I realize I've shouted out my opinion I get rather embarrassed and tell myself I won't do it again... Then I do. I'm always losing and forgetting things, and my room's a downright disaster zone. My teachers don't really treat me any differently than the other kids, mainly because I usually can do well enough on my own, and my mother just thinks I'm either lazy or something similar. I always feel like there's something bothering me, and often times there is, even if it's something considered "small." When I was younger, I used to have fits of anger/frustration over something as simple as not finding my pencil, and as I grew older I suppose these outward impulses became more introverted, probably explaining why I constantly blame myself for everything and have attempted suicide several times due to not being happy with myself. My question is... Is it possible to have both ADD/ADHD, severe depression, and anxiety at the same time? If so, how can I get help for not just one, but all of these? I've been through CBT and have a therapist and medication... But there are days when that's just not enough.

Facebook and Kids - Should you let you kids use facebook?

That is the title of an article published by fyi Living. It talks about how social networking, such as Facebook can really harm teen mental health if used extremely regularly. A professor of psychology believes that teens who constantly use Facebook "show more aggression, mania, anxiety and depression.” They believe that it gets worse as the teens age. It also brings up that Facebook depression is real and may some day be a clinical term. I've heard stories of teens bullying or gossiping using Facebook, instant messaging, and even e-mail. It really did affect the ones they targeted. The internet is just another vessel people use to communicate. It could be another vessel teens utilize for all sorts of communication and since bullying and gossiping happens in real life, it seems like it would transcend online as well. What do you think about this?
