ADHD Symptoms And Treatment.
Life for most adults is always harried. Balancing life and work can be tricky but manageable. Sometimes however, you may notice that you are always late, distracted, forgetful or even overwhelmed by daily responsibilities this may be a sign that you have ADH.
ADHD or attention deficit disorder (ADD) affects many adults. It has various symptoms that may hinder you from having a normal relationship or pursuing your career. It is important to learn the many signs and symptoms as well as effects of ADHD in adults.
ADHD is a condition that is common among children. This is because ADHD symptoms start to show during the early years of a child. And if you have been diagnosed with ADHD during your childhood, chances are you have carried some symptoms into adulthood. However, you can still be affected by ADHD even if you have not been diagnosed with the condition as a child. Implying that not all symptoms of this condition can be identified as a child.
We cannot ignore the fact that in the past we did not have as much information as we have today about the condition. In the past therefore, instead of picking out ADHD symptoms from children exhibiting them, most parents labeled such children as trouble makers, dim witted and slakers.
Some Common ADHD Symptoms:
A patient suffering from this condition is generally not able to concentrate. If you have ADHD, concentration and focus are difficult to achieve. For instance a child or an adult could exhibit such behaviours like being bored easily, being easily distracted as well as not being able to stick to one activity.
Another symptom is hyperfocusing. This means that a patient suffering from this condition is able to be greatly absorbed in an activity that they find interesting to them while they find it very hard to focus on those other tasks that they find to be uninteresting. When they hyperfocus, they do so to tune out distraction and chaos that may happen. This may work to the patients advantage if all this energy is focused onto positive activities and the opposite is also true. If this prolongs for a long time or if it is left unmonitored, it may affect ones relationships with other people.
Individual talk therapy is a way to help an adult with ADHD deal with emotional baggage such as low self-esteem, shame and feeling of embarrassment. If this condition has caused problems in your relationships with your family, theraphy talks that educate about this disease can be really helpful in order to mend those relationships.
