Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

– The Evidence Is Now Overwhelming

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is not just a problem in children. Worldwide studies now show that up to 5% of the adult population struggle with Adult ADHD. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) have now recognised Adult ADHD as a genuine medical condition with a specific cluster of symptoms and they have issued clear guidelines on the best evidence-based treatments.

If you were diagnosed with childhood ADD/ADHD, chances are, you’ve carried at least some of the symptoms into adulthood. But even if you were never diagnosed with ADD/ADHD as a child, that doesn’t mean you can’t be affected by it as an adult.

In the past attention deficit hyperactivity disorder often went unrecognised throughout childhood. Before the 1980’s very few people were even aware of ADD/ADHD. Instead of recognising your symptoms and identifying the real issue, your family, teachers, or other parents may have labelled you a dreamer, a slacker, a troublemaker, or just a bad student. Even many doctors were not aware of the condition.

Alternatively, you may have been able to compensate for the symptoms of ADD/ADHD when you were young, only to run into problems as your responsibilities increase. The more balls you’re trying to keep in the air—pursuing a career, raising a family, running a household—the greater the demand on your abilities to organise, focus, and remain calm. This can be challenging for anyone, but if you have ADD/ ADHD, it can feel downright impossible.
