My son has severe anxiety and ADD (some mental health professionals say he has ADD some do not). My wife’s doctor says that she has severe anxiety and old mental health professional that she was see years ago said that she possible has ADD. I believe that she does have ADD from the questionnaires I have seen. Is there a way to figure this out? So that both my wife and son can get the right treatment. Can severe anxiety and or ADD be inherited? My wife keeps tell me things that are happening to her at work or with her friend’s and I have lost all ability to believe her. From everything that she tells me everyone is against her, looking and thinking about her, planning bad things to do to her etc, etc, etc.
