      That is normal. It is common for people to have combinations of mental illnesses like that. Ocd and adhd mostly go together along with Tourette’s Syndrome as well. And some people have other combined illness. Like people who are sociopathic will often also have borderline personality disorder and maybe narcissism. And sometimes doctors will group the mental illnesses under a term of their own. Bipolar and schizophrenia together are called schizoaffective disorder. I had to learn about that also.

      Yes, they have strong similarities. The biggest distinction is in the compulsions and ritualistic behaviors that comes with OCD.

      I think a lot of mental conditions heighten eachother, and ADHD and OCD definitely make a formidable pair

      I've been diagnosed with both and find them pretty distinct personally.

      yes. I’m almost convinced I have adhd but then also idk if my brain is just exhausted from the amount of anxiety I have rn

        @cilantrohater I second that. I've never been diagnosed with ADHD as far as I know, and the OCD has been since I was a kid. I'm a nervous ball of energy, I don't know what's what. I also have PTSD and I'm in recovery so there's a lot going on up there.
