So much. Sometimes I feel so much irritability with my closest friends & will have arguments with them in my head, then when I talk to one of them, I’m better, but sometimes I need to vent to them about what is bothering me. Little things seem to fester & build up in my head & then I explode. I try to tell myself over & over that whatever it is isn’t important, that I should let it go, but it doesn’t work. I didn’t talk to my best friend for almost a whole year b/c I was trying to resolve all of this stuff in my head. I finally talked, felt better, but it’s a real problem. A constant struggle. Irritability is definitely a symptom of ADD. I hate it. I feel annoyed that I’m so annoyed. LOL
