    That is your opinion.

    Because it causes impairment and/or distress.
    So does driving in glaring sunshine... I think your definition is ridiculous, as if a man thinking he is a woman doesn't cause distress.

    Obviously you have learned some excellent coping skills in order to deal with your ADD. You still have the disorder but you have nulified it's impairment and distress through good coping skills. I congratulate you. That's not always an easy thing to do.
    Or I was just a little hyper and the over diagnosis by doctors lead our doctor an incorrect diagnosis and put undue worry into my life.

    If the issue causes that individual distress or impairment, it would then be considered GDD.
    Disorder...

    Depends on how it is presented, and if they have GDD, which many do, they do get help.

    Wrong. Diagnostically, the impairment and/or distress must have been happening for +6 months in many aspects of one's live. Driving in glaring sunshine is situational and has nothing to do with the type of psychological distress that is being discussed. Your analogy is idiotic. And in MANY cases, transsexuality causes GDD, a psychological disorder.

    Or I was just a little hyper and the over diagnosis by doctors lead our doctor an incorrect diagnosis and put undue worry into my life.
    That is VERY possible. I have "undiagnosed" many people who were incorrectly given an ADD/ADHD diagnosis. It has been the "thing" to give someone and has been overdiagnosed for more than a decade.

    Disorder...
    ...would be GDD, not transsexuality.
