Have you ever jokingly blamed your forgetfulness or disorganization on ADHD? Or, seriously wondered why, no matter how hard you try, you can never stay organized?
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder is a genetic neurobiological condition usually diagnosed in childhood continuing into adulthood, much like diabetes or heart problems. It can also result from a head trauma. There are three core symptoms of ADHD: inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity.
For many it is undiagnosed until circumstances in our life do not keep our “habits” under control.
* not following through on promises or expectations
* being distracted to the point of not listening
* being too active - being too withdrawn
Usually, these are greeted with accusations of “being lazy”, “not reliable”, “uncaring”.
You know you’re not any of those things. But, those labels feed negative self-esteem diminishing self-confidence and lead to an attitude of “why bother”.
If this sounds familiar to you, it’s important to check out whether ADHD is a part of your life. If you’re not able to make effective changes to accomplish that job promotion or maintain a caring relationship, consider the possibility that ADHD may be part of the reason.
