You have what some might call DSM-IV-itis. It might be better for you to consider a specific symptom target rather than a cluster of symptoms subsumed within the disorders. For example, are you trying to improve anxiety, organizational issues, anger, focus etc. There may be many symptoms but pick the one at the top of the heap. Now that gives us a plan to look at what the possible treatments for that symptom might be. Symptom-based management actually widens the range of possible medical and behavioral choices and gives a more rational strategy to affect change. The message here is that if one symptom can change so can all the others….one symptom at a time. When you have so many disorders operating, it is likely that as one disorder is addressed the others get worse and counter the effects of the improvement that you are making.
