Distracted By ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)?
January 25, 2007
Many adults with ADHD may not even be aware that they have the condition known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Some common symptoms are having trouble getting organized, sticking to a job, and keeping appointments on time.
Even though most cases of ADHD begin in childhood, between 30% and 70% of children who have it will continue to have symptoms as adults. Frequent hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsive behavior are some very classic signs.
It's important to get a professional diagnosis of ADHD. If you are occasionally distracted or forgetful does not mean you have ADHD.
