Hello all, there is a link for some women between perimenopause and ADD/ADHD. If I can find the articles I have read, I will see if I can direct you to them as I believe we can’t post links here. It would be interesting to know if there is any link for men at this stage of life.

Spacecadet59, your daughter’s research is interesting and it makes me wonder more … I was diagnosed with low-level post-natal depression about 10 years ago. I had a lot of memory issues and scatter-brain issues but the depression tag never sat well with me, having had depression previously and feeling completely differently.

It’s difficult when so many conditions share symptoms and are often inter-linked.

Thanks so much to all on this thread. Hummingbird19 – your frustrations are mine, too!
