Priyanka was taken aback when her four year old son’s teacher asked her to meet the school counselor, “Your son may be suffering from signs of ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.”
“So what if my son is a little disorganized and forgetful? Those are just harmless personality traits that he has picked up from me!” thought Priyanka. However, after her visit to the Counselor, Priyanka began wondering if she herself had had ADHD all along!
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD is not just a condition affecting children. Many adults are realizing that this condition was quite unknown when they were younger. Also, many people did suffer from these symptoms of ADHD as a child, but it did not hamper their routine activities. However, now as adults with increased responsibilities, they are no longer able to overcome these challenges at work and home.
Below are the common signs of ADHD in adults. Not everyone has all the symptoms of ADHD and each ADHD may be individually different.
