Woman Explains What It Actually Means To Have ADHD In Hopes Of Eliminating Misinterpretations

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD for short, is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders among children. While it is usually first diagnosed in childhood, the disorder often lasts into adulthood. ADHD is characterized by having trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors, and being overly active. However, as it appears, there’s way more than just that.

Symptoms of ADHD, according to the NHS, can be categorized into two types of behavioral problems: inattentiveness; and hyperactivity and impulsiveness. As mental health experts explain, most people with this disorder fall into both of these categories. However, it’s not the same for all. For instance, some people may struggle with inattentiveness while not having problems with impulsiveness or hyperactivity. This is what psychiatrists call a form of ADHD that is also known as attention deficit disorder (ADD). Sometimes, as the symptoms of ADD can be less obvious, this disorder can go unnoticed.
