Re: add depression anxiety

Major Depression symptoms include:
Significant weight loss when not dieting, or weight gain, or change in appetite
Insomnia or sleeping too much, nearly everyday
Activity level slows down or increases
Fatigue or loss of energy
Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt
Diminished ability to think, concentrate or make decisions
Recurrent thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide plan or attempt

Hope this helps.

I would suggest you set up an appt with Psychologist as a starting point. They are not full-proof but they may be able to narrow the problem down. If it does turn out to be anxiety or depression look in to CBT. I do not think CBT is helpful with ADD though My favorite starter book on CBT is "Been there, done that? Do this! By sam obitz and many universities offer CBT programs for little or no charge. It's the best stress reducer around and once you learn the tools they are with you wherever you go
