I disagree that anxiety comes and goes. I like what the last post said. It is always there it is just at different levels of intensity.

I found my anxiety/depression were a part of my overall ADHD symptoms.

It makes sense to me when I finally understood the bigger picture of what is going on in a chemically imbalanced brain. There are classic symptoms that are born out of that imbalance.
