Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, more commonly known as ADHD, is usually diagnosed in kids. Because of this, adults have a misconception that they can’t have ADHD now that they are older.
With so many things happening today, it is only natural that people sometimes lose their focus. Working or studying from home does not always work well because the environment itself is meant for relaxing, not working or studying.
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a behavioral condition that often develops in childhood, but it can also affect someone as an adult. In fact, about 2.5% of adults in the United States live with this condition. And while some people seemingly grow out of some of their ADHD symptoms, the condition is usually something that needs to be managed for life.
While many children with ADHD are diagnosed and treated with medication and/or behavioral therapies, many adults have never benefited from diagnosis and treatment. If this applies to you, you might feel lost, misunderstood, and have poor self-esteem. It’s not your fault, and there is a path forward for adults with ADHD.
