My interaction with women and proven research has led to this conclusion, there are some Signs of Adult ADHD – ADHD in some adults.
Lack of focus
The typical inattention symptom of ADHD in some adults often continues into adulthood. You may find you are always starting a project – but never finishing. You may find it difficult to follow along in conversations or find you are easily distracted. You may miss important details – or details in general.
Frequent job changes
Job changes occur for two different reasons. You may have a history of being fired – your lack of attention to detail, making mistakes, or personality conflicts can lead to being fired. Or, you are bored with your job and constantly searching for a more interesting job. While many adults with ADHD do end up with successful careers, it can take time to find the right job to fit your skills and personality.
The opposite of lack of focus, hyperfocus is when you become completely engrossed in an activity you like that you forget everything around you. You ignore those around you, lose track of time and forget about responsibilities. While hyper-focus can be an asset and may help you sometimes, at other times it interferes with relationships.
A number of the symptoms that cause problems in other areas of your life – disorganization, procrastination, impulsiveness – can wreak havoc on your finances. You might find yourself paying late payments because you lost the bill or simply forgot to pay it. You may make impulsive purchases and then not have enough money to
You don’t just forget the unimportant details, you forget important dates, to meet your spouse or friend for lunch, where you put your keys, you name it, you forget it. Forgetfulness is a routine part of your everyday life.
ADHD in Some Adults
We shared a couple symptoms with you, who knows you may or may not be suffering with ADD or ADHD, however if you find that too many of these symptoms are related to you maybe you should start paying attention.
Get yourself checked out, knowledge is power.
A diagnosis of ADHD often comes as a surprise for adults. Some experts estimate that as many as 75 percent of adults with ADHD don’t know they have it. This might be because it was once considered a “childhood disorder” and it was thought that by the time you ended puberty, you outgrew it. It was also considered a “male disorder,” which means women were much less likely to be diagnosed with ADHD as a child. Today, more and more adults are being diagnosed with ADHD. Sometimes this happens when their child is diagnosed and they realize they share many of the same symptoms, such as lack of focus.
Now go and save your relationship, it just may be something intrinsic and it really isn’t about your partner.
