ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a condition that is detected at an early age. Due to a lack of information about this condition, parents of a child with ADHD do not take the necessary measures to treat it at an early age as it should with therapy, it is important to consider that this disorder may perceive symptoms until adulthood.
If You Are Struggling with ADHD, We Got You!
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) stands as a prevalent neurodevelopmental condition in Canada, impacting around 4-6% of adults and 5-7% of children. This translates to roughly 1.8 million individuals within the country living with this disorder.
ADHD in each person is as distinct as their individual fingerprints. The experience of ADHD varies uniquely among those who have the condition, among the discomforts that some people may experience are fidgeting a lot or talking excessively. Some people with ADHD may make decisions too quickly and without thinking through the consequences or act rashly, while others may not have the ability to be patient and wait, leading them to interrupt conversations or situations.
However, if you are experiencing ADHD, know that this condition is very common and that you are always on time to learn how to manage it with therapy.
Understanding ADHD: Unveiling the Real Story
There are many myths about ADHD, nowadays people are talking more about this condition, than a few years back. The good thing about this is that people are more informed, and the condition is being normalized in society. However, the disadvantage of this is that there are more opinions, misinformation and as a result myths have been created, here are some of the most common myths people are talking about:
Myth: Someone can't have ADHD and also have depression, anxiety, or other psychiatric problems.
Fact: A person with ADHD is six times more likely to have another psychiatric or learning disorder than most other people. ADHD usually overlaps with other disorders.
Myth: ADHD is just a lack of willpower. People with ADHD focus well on things that interest them; they could focus on any other tasks if they really wanted to.
Fact: ADHD looks very much like a willpower problem, but it isn't. It's essentially a chemical problem in the management systems of the brain.
If you think you might be experiencing ADHD, have a consultation with a psychotherapist and get all of your questions cleared out.
