    Just wondering about cancer or other common diseases out there, I’ve recently been reading about how our personality effects the illnesses we are prone to, as my cousin developed colitis  and the doctor blamed his introvert nature.  I’ve met quite a few people with ADHD including most of my family members and it almost seems as if people with ADHD are less prone to other illnesses. Any thoughts?

    Hi, this is an interesting one. My husband and I both have Chronic Fatigue. I think that his introvert nature and the anxiety that goes with it may have contributed to it. But for me.. I had undiagnosed ADHD and only realised after I crashed with CFS. So.. I believe that teh stress of undiagnosed ADHD very much contributed to my Fatigue crash. Maybe if you have been successful with your ADHD it may contribute to good health, but if, like me, you’ve lived among ordinary folks who have jobs and live life in straight lines.. you will probably find the stress gets you one day!
