adults with ADHDYou have probably heard about attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Most of the time, ADHD is talked about in regards to children. You have probably heard about children at school struggling to focus. A lot of the time, much less attention is paid to adults with this disorder. However, adults can very much suffer from ADHD, just like children do. As adults, we are expected to sit still, focus, work, and accomplish tasks every day. When we find it challenging, we can obtain other labels such as “lazy” or “incompetent.” We even may try to self-medicate because we do not understand what we are experiencing. Rest assured that you are not alone if you have adult ADHD. Here are four common symptoms that adults with ADHD may experience.

Lack of Focus

You may find that you struggle with remembering details. Some people will struggle with finishing projects, tasks, or focusing through an entire conversation with someone.


We all get disorganized sometimes. Life gets busy and stressful. However, those who have ADHD tend to struggle more than the average person. This disorganization typically flows into other areas of life. Some people may find that they have a hard time prioritizing and keeping track of tasks that need to be accomplished.


It is entirely human to forget things. When this forgetfulness impacts our life, we start to consider if it is part of a larger problem. Forgetfulness can affect relationships and careers if ignored.

Time Management

Those who have ADHD tend to struggle with time management skills. Poor time management skills can present as procrastinating on tasks, showing up late for events, or merely ignoring specific tasks that should be done. For some with ADHD, focusing on the future or the past is much harder than focusing on the present.
