    Hi Paul, I’m sorry you are going through this but I am so impressed with how well you have been able to analyze and understand the issues and how much you want to make things better. I have a few recommendations: Joining an ADD support group (You will probably feel at home there and you’ll get honest feedback from people who understand you and don’t judge you.) Also, if you can, it would help to videotape or record yourself in social interactions or conversations. Looking at or listening to yourself, might help you see the dynamics of how different elements affect your behavior and thought. Lastly, you may want to consider neurofeedback. This helped my son with anxiety and impulsivity and it has greatly helped him with his confidence in social interactions. He is calmer, happier, more engaged and much less hyper. I wish you the best.

    Neurofeedback changed our life. It helped my son with his anxiety, impulsivity, and emotional regulation. Most doctors we consulted told us that there is not enough evidence to back up the effects of neurofeedback but because we knew someone who had tried it successfully we gave it a try. It does not work for everyone but If your child has anxiety, you must at least try it. Usually within the first few sessions you will see a difference. It is not inexpensive but the effects have been significant (at least for us).
