Well, do you think you have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder)? We usually associate ADHD with children but adults can have it too. ADHD symptoms can pass down throughout the generations, so someone in the family most likely had or has symptoms too. If you suspect that you have ADHD, there are usually signs from childhood, that you had ADHD but didn’t connect the signs at the time. For example, if it took you twice the amount of effort, to do only half of what the other kids accomplished, or if you had a difficult time sitting still or keeping up academically, those could have been signs of ADHD.
If the above sounded like you and you think that you could have ADHD as an adult, here are some common signs that you may be experiencing: being easily distracted, impulsive, have relationship problems, can’t relax, quick temper, thrill seekers, procrastinator, over-thinker, lose things all the time, smoking, can’t stay on or complete tasks, trouble on the job, and being disorganized. Obviously, all these signs can make life difficult and can make you feel inadequate. This can be hard on your self esteem. No one should have to go through life feeling misunderstood and defeated.
