POSSIBLE SIGNS OF ADULT ADHD
If you think you may have ADHD, ask yourself the following questions.
- get distracted easily?
- have difficulty concentrating on one thing at a time?
- tend to be disorganized?
- have a hard time focusing or paying attention during conversations, listening to others, or while reading?
- often forget things like appointments or obligations?
- have trouble following directions that have multiple steps?
- have difficulty starting and finishing projects?
- tend to procrastinate (diffculty making choices)
- have trouble prioritizing information?
- become impatient easily?
- often feel restless and antsy?
- lose track of time and have trouble with time management?
- often misplace or have difficulty finding things at home or at work?
- act before thinking through consequences?
- speak or blurt out before thinking about the impact your words will have on others?
- tend to have lots of distracting thoughts?

If you answered "yes" to 50% or more of these questions and the behaviors are severe enough that they interfere with your daily activities, it is possible that you have ADHD. An accurate diagnosis can only be made by an AD(H)D specialist. Depression, bipolar disorder, substance addictions, anxiety, phobias - all may share some similar symptoms to ADHD and Autism, so it is important that your AD(H)D specialist rule out other conditions that require different treatment.
