I think it is possible to have ADD & BP at the same time but some symptoms are similar in both disorders and diagnosis can be difficult.

As you know , if you are worried about something then please speak to a proffesional.

I however am not a professional.

Look after yourself , and let us know how you go ,

It is absolutely possible to have them both. ADD can look like anxiety and bipolar and vice versa. You need a professional to make this sort of a determination.
