Social Anxiety and ADHD
I have SAD and ADHD and I'm not sure how to cope with both at the same time. I currently take medication for my ADHD, and it really helps me concentrate, but dramatically increases the physical symptoms of my anxiety (ex: faster heart rate, breathing, more shaking and stuttering, redder face). I've tried different types of medication but have had the same issue with all of them.
I also notice that it's really hard for me to talk at a normal pace with people. When I'm uncomfortable I stay very quiet because I feel too anxious to speak, but when I am comfortable I can talk someones head off because I have so many things going through my head and I want to say something before I forget it. I wish I could just talk back and forth with someone normally, and feel comfortable about it.
Does anyone else have SAD and ADHD and deals with these issues and knows ways to cope with them?
