Adult ADHD

Lee Sooyeon

             Do I have ADD? Adults with ADHD symptoms including distractibility, impulsivity, disorganization, poor time management, emotional sensitivity, relationship problems, and/or trouble managing money should take this adult ADHD test to learn more about the way attention deficit shows up later in life.

             Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD) is a neurological condition defined by symptoms of inattention and/or hyperactive impulsivity that interferes with daily functioning in at least two settings — for example, at work and at home.

             Roughly two-thirds of people who experienced ADHD symptoms as a child will continue to experience ADHD symptoms as an adult, though its manifestations tend to shift and change with age. But many people with attention deficit — particularly its inattentive symptoms — are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed as children. They may suffer serious psychological consequences after a lifetime of blaming themselves for ADHD symptoms.

Symptoms of Adult ADHD May Include:

Impulsiveness

Forgetting names and dates

Missing deadlines and leaving projects unfinished

Extreme emotionality and rejection sensitivity

Becoming easily distracted and disorganized

Suffering generalized anxiety disorder and mood disorder

Low frustration tolerance

Trouble multitasking

Excessive activity or restlessness            

 

If you find many of the symptoms above yourself, you show signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD). However, you can still have ADHD even if you found less of those yourself. Those symptoms written above are intended as a general guide only; you should share it with your doctor for further analysis.
