I can totally relate! My son hasn’t been fully diagnosed yet (just waiting on the official diagnosis from the psychologist but we are pretty sure he’s ADHD mixed with ODD and possibly some ASD. The paediatrician asked if I had every been tested for ADHD and I said “Me? No! I have anxiety.” Turns out I tick a lot of the boxes in the questionnaire he gave me. I am often anxious around my son when he’s being extra hyper and when he is repeating words or phrases over and over, my irritability goes through the roof! I think I will take a look at those articles above. I’m from Australia btw – where are you all from?
