[QUOTE=soconfused]freespirt-
can you tell me where I can read about ring of fire? you sound like me and they told my parents that I have adhd and something called border line personnallity. thanx[/QUOTE]

I'm about to leave for work but I'll post some sources and info on all ADHD subtypes later on today.

Borderline personality disorder has a lot to do with how you relate to others, relationships etc etc. Symptoms of impulsivity are alike but Ring of Fire isn't borderline so you really need to do some research to make sure you have a correct diagnosis.

This is borderline:
A pervasive pattern of instability of interpersonal relationships, self-image, and affects, and marked impulsivity beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five (or more) of the following:

(1) frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment.
Note: Do not include suicidal or self-mutilating behavior covered in Criterion 5.

(2) a pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation

(3) identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self

(4) impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., spending, sex, Substance Abuse, reckless driving, binge eating).
Note: Do not include suicidal or self-mutilating behavior covered in Criterion 5.

(5) recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, or threats, or self-mutilating behavior

(6) affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood (e.g., intense episodic dysphoria, irritability, or anxiety usually lasting a few hours and only rarely more than a few days)

(7) chronic feelings of emptiness

(8) inappropriate, intense anger or difficulty controlling anger (e.g., frequent displays of temper, constant anger, recurrent physical fights)

(9) transient, stress-related paranoid ideation or severe dissociative symptoms

As you can see, very different, do you have those symptoms or do you think you are just ADHD?
