I know this isnt strictly nutritional, but it tags onto the end of what Erasmus was saying about sunlight. Sunlight is essential and helps process Vitamin D. The best way that I have found to get sunlight is jogging. Jog for an hour a day and you get the sunlight and you also exercise as well. (And exercise is great for lifting moods). You see, everything is kind of inter-linked and once you start one, you get the domino effect where everything starts falling into place.

My immediate thought as I read through your post is the amount of worry that you seem to write with. Self-Diagnosis is OK to a point but it is known to be much les reliable that seeing your doctor since there are many different disorders that can have the same signs and symptoms. My advice would be to go and see a doctor, since I think you are likely to worry yourself to pieces. He should be able to tell you if you have OCD and ADD. Also, he will be able to give you some advice regarding meds. As far as I am aware, Lexapro does not do anything for OCD or ADD but I could be wrong on that score.
