      I almost posted this under aand another section but…Does adhd and a bad temper go hand and hand? I was just curious. I have the combined hyperactive/inattentive type and my fuse can be very short at times. I’m not proud of it, but I have been arrested and had court dates because of my impulsive actions when I am angry. When I get angry,my first instinct is to hit and usually the urge overcomes me before I stop and think. Inside m brain, it is like there is a Ferrari in there with no brakes and no way to down shift. I have been working with my doctor on this. Can anyone else relate and any creative tips to help besides the usual breathe and count to ten (which doesn’t work)?

      This certainly can be related to ADHD:
