What is ADHD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder affects children and adolescents and can continue into adulthood. People with ADHD generally become easily bored or frustrated with tasks, find it hard to concentrate or pay attention, find it hard to follow directions, act impulsively, and are always on the move. ADHD can negatively affect people’s daily lives at work, home, and/or school.
People with ADHD find it difficult to:
- Manage time
- Set goals
- Stay organized
- Maintain a steady job
- People with ADHD suffer from:
- Low self-esteem
- Mood swings
- Frustration tolerance
- Chronic boredom
- Anger management issues
What causes ADHD is still uncertain. The factors believed to be involved are heredity, chemical imbalance, and changes in the brain. Other factors that may contribute to ADHD include injury to the brain, brain disorder, and poor nutrition. If the symptoms of ADHD become severe and are interfering with your daily life then it may be beneficial to seek treatment at a counseling center.
