Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a childhood known disorder often associated with little boys ages of -3-7 years old. Studies show, ADHD affects 5% of children ages 4-17 and needs to be diagnosed early on as it may carry into adulthood which may cause issues.
In general, adults with ADHD possess mental issues such as anxiety, depression, and oppositional defiant disorder. This may be true for those soon as this medical condition has three subtypes as follows:
- Hyperactive/Impulsive Subtype: primarily displays hyperactive or impulsive symptoms together with impatience, hyper-talkative, difficulty sitting still, impulsive behaviour
- Inattentive Subtype: display inattentive symptoms with limited attention span, forgetfulness, distractibility (poor focus), daydreaming, having difficulty following directions
- Combined Subtype: possesses both inattentive and hyperactive symptoms which may be hard to distinguish.
For adults, women with ADHD are diagnosed late in life which could have adverse effects on each personality. Most women with ADHD do not know they have it and the symptoms won’t show unless triggered by a life-changing experience.
