ADHD

Diagnosis

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is often associated with school-age kids, but it definitely affects adults, too! If you have ADHD, it can be hard to concentrate, follow directions, remember information, or finish your work on time (and not just on summer Fridays). People with ADHD can also experience chronic boredom, depression, impulsiveness, mood swings, and more. It can be easy to write off these symptoms, especially if you’re burnt out from work or navigating a stressful moment in your personal life. But with ADHD these problems can really interfere with your routines long-term, so definitely talk to a practitioner if this experience sounds familiar. ADHD has been shown to be underdiagnosed in adults, so it’s helpful to be proactive if you’re feeling like something’s off. Once you have a diagnosis in hand, you can explore treatment options. Some people take prescription medication, while others try alternative treatments like hypnotherapy, stress reduction (think mindfulness and meditation!), and certain herbs or supplements—including omega-3s and melatonin. That last one is especially helpful if you have trouble sleeping!
