Default What lies beneath

I wonder if there is a higher incidence of ADD among polys than the general population. The condition is erroniously named. The problem is not so much primary innattentiveness, but that we are overstimulated by too many things in our immediate orbit. When something or someone grabs our attention though we tend to hyperfocus (incredible NRE?) sometimes to the detriment of our other interests or relationships and our general well being. Impulsiveness and feelings of restlessness and being trapped are also common which can lead to rash decisions. This anxiety can be so overwhelming that circular reasoning sets in and it feeds itself. In the partner not seeking or experiencing a new relationship it can lead to feelings of jealousy and fear of loss. Maybe recognizing and dealing with the underlying condition can improve and strengthen alot of relationships. Any thoughts? Anyone heard of any studies on the subject?
