Comorbid and Co-occurring Issues

Comorbid and Co-occurring Issues

ADHD Autism comorbidity
I was recently in a discussion regarding co-occurring conditions and it suddenly occurred to be that there is an un-stated or unwritten implication that many of the issues we refer to as comorbid or co-occurring are not really "co" occurring (as occurring with), but rather they are occurring over or around the underlying neurological issues.
This layering is like that of an onion with the co-occurring issues acting like a shell or filter through which the underlying personality or neurological issues are accessed or viewed.
