ADHD in Adults is Frequently Undiagnosed
For many adults, ADHD was overlooked when they were a child – so they know nothing about the condition nor are they aware of the causes of their problems.
Many sufferers can make no sense of their "abnormalities" and seek out a doctor only when they start to lead to serious problems in everyday life and relationships.
Common trigger points for starting the search for a cause include:
- Difficulties in the workplace
- Conflicts with family and in relationships
- Comorbidities, such as depression or addictions
Undiagnosed ADHD – Often a Long Ordeal
Those affected often have many experiences of failures and frustrations, which frequently play a role in both the past and present.
Those affected cause offence to others – and have no explanation why.
These weaknesses and supposed "character flaws" become increasingly more apparent. Therefore, the positive aspects of the human being are often lost; Creativity, enthusiasm, and openness to new things.
