Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders, affecting approximately 10 million adults and 6 million children. As symptoms may begin to appear in childhood, many individuals aren’t diagnosed with ADHD until reaching adulthood. Everyone is different, and symptoms may vary from person to person.
Some symptoms may include:
Inattentive ADHD: One who has inattentive ADHD symptoms may struggle with focusing or making careless mistakes. Difficulty following instructions, getting easily distracted, and disorganization may be common. Also, it could be easier to daydream, misplace important belongings, or fall into not managing time well.
Hyperactive ADHD: While someone could have inattentive symptoms, one could also have hyperactivity. This would look like fidgeting, being impatient, talking over or interrupting others in a conversation. Self-esteem, anger issues, and relationship struggles could be apparent as people with ADHD get older. Anxiety and depression may also be likely in adulthood with ADHD.
