Reply To: ADHD + Masking Anxiety


Hi. I have many of the same issues. I think I have ADHD, but that is not my true challenge. I discovered by working with an OT who specializes in sensory issues that it was a sensory processing disorder and it was causing my anxiety and the hyperfocus was a coping strategy for the SPD and anxiety. The treatment is ironically the same as for ADHD, for me, and I am finding great success with it finally!
