I think I have ADHD
Is it possible that you have adult ADHD? This slideshow will walk you through the process of diagnosing, treating, and healing if you suspect that your longstanding issues with memory, focus, or friendships are due to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD).
ADHD symptoms do not vanish when a child reaches puberty. In fact, about two-thirds of all ADHD children grow up to be ADHD adults. However, many people are still unaware of this. Because the medical community's understanding of inattentive vs. hyperactive attention deficit, as well as the unique manifestation of symptoms in girls vs. boys, has improved dramatically in recent decades, many adults in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and even 60s are recognizing their ADHD symptoms for the first time. This slideshow will walk you through the process of diagnosing, treating, and moving on if you suspect that your longtime issues with memory, focus, or friendships are due to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD).
