ADHD Anxieties

First, Doug says, there are basically two types of anxiety.

1) Stomach turning somersaults, a prelude to a panic attack

2) Worrying, ruminating

He and I also talk about the difference between anxiety in ADHD and how someone can have both ADHD and a comorbid anxiety disorder.

He shares his top 3 tips on how to manage anxiety as well as how they work for him.
