Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer. It sounds like you may be referring to impulse control issues (impulsive speech?), disorganized mind, and memory loss. These symptoms may be indicative of neuro-psychiatric condition like ADD/ADHD and mood disorder like Depression and Anxiety. Did I answer your question? Please let me know if you have more questions. Warm regards,

what would be the significant differences between the impulse control issues with ADD/ADHD and/or Depression/Anxiety? How would one be tested or treated if this were a concern? Thanks an namaste!
Hi, Thanks for your response. "A Freudian slip" speech and disorganized mind may be caused by ADHD and/or Anxiety as it has to do with
impulse control issues. Memory loss may be caused by ADHD and/or Depression. Some symptoms of Anxiety may be similar to those of ADHD in irritable behavior. However, primary conditions of ADHD are inattention and hyperactivity. To note, a person may have all - ADHD, Anxiety and Depression.

First of all, you may need to see your primary care physician for a physical check-up to rule out and detect any medical condition that may cause these symptoms. Then, you may take an ADD/ADHD screening test in a local hospital to detect and rule out ADD/ADHD. Then you may take a psychological assessment/evaluation by a clinical psychologist to see if you have anxiety and/or depression.

Please let me know if you have more questions. Warm regards,
