Recognising ADHD in adults

Do you often experience these issues:

Impulsiveness
Disorganisation
Problems prioritising
Poor time management skills
Problems getting started on a task
Hyperfocus on one task, to the detriment of other tasks
Excessive activity, restlessness (e.g. can’t just sit and enjoy a TV programme without checking your phone, pace up and down while talking on the phone)
Low frustration tolerance
Frequent mood swings, hot temper
Sensory sensitivities
Anxiety, meltdowns or shutdowns
Trouble coping with stress?

Were you described as hyperactive as a child?

Could you have ADHD?

Only a few years ago I realised ADHD is not just something “disruptive kids” get.

Like autism, ADHD is a lifelong neurological difference, and varies between individuals.

Many of my favourite people have it too, and these are my favourite people 😍
