    Hi Jasmine. I'm new here myself, I also have Asperger's and hypermobility, not sure of the cause of the hypermobility, I've just looked up Ehlers Danlos and I guess it must have a similar effect. This seems a very supportive site and I hope you feel comfortable here.

    Thankyou. I have ADHD but I wonder if it's closer to ADD.

    I was diagnosed with ADHD at age 3 because I constantly fiddle and I am impulsive for example at the time I would randomly walk out during story time. I am not jitterey hyperactive but I d struggle to focus for long periods of time.

    Hey Jasmine, I have aspergers, anxiety and depression. I don't have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome but I do have an interest in medical terms. I don't know the difference between ADD and ADHD though. I was under the impression they were the same.
