I have a hard time with the depression thing. From what I understand depression involves sadness and unhappiness but there are many times that this incredible fatigue comes out of the blue and doesn’t have much emotion behind it just a total mental and physical “shut-down.”

I have done a lot of CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy not the other CBT (Google it with the adult filters off to see what I’m talking about), and I have a hard time identifying negative thoughts. I believe it’s due more to low dopamine. Don’t get me wrong there are times when I feel really depressed about the situation but I can use the CBT techniques to move beyond that but other times the fatigue is just simply debilitating.

I want to know if it is common among people with ADHD to suffer from a lot of fatigue.
