What ADHD is really like. ADHD is more than poor focus and concentration. ADHD symptoms in adulthood are discussed. Hyperfocus and ADHD are an unusual combination.
Here are some signs that ADHD can be seen in adults. It is possible to have restlessness, impulsive and compulsive behaviors like gambling and drinking
Trouble regulating emotions
Acting without thinking would be the impulsivity
With the inattentive/disorganized type you can see things like
Procrastination, being late all of the time, losing things Not following through on projects or not completing them Wandering thoughts ,
Clutter, forgetfulness or anxiety
One common misconception about ADHD is that you can’t focus if you have it. People with ADHD can hyperfocus on the things they are most interested in, to the exclusion all other things. You can use this hyperfocus to your advantage when choosing a career path. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses will help you select the right career path and manage your symptoms without medication.
ADHD can have a significant impact on relationships. I will talk about this in a forthcoming video.
