Adult ADHD Treatment in Columbus, Ohio
Mistakes happen. People lose their keys. And lots of people struggle to be on time. But if you have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), these experiences not only feel like they happen more often, they can lead to excessive worry and negative self-talk.
In fact, it’s common for adults with ADHD to feel like they’re “just bad at life.”
If you are an adult with ADHD, you’re not alone. 4.4 percent of adults have ADHD, while only about a third of those adults even know they even have ADHD. And if left untreated or unacknowledged, it can result in years of missed opportunities and low self-esteem.
So the first step toward restoring confidence and getting your life together is specialized adult ADHD assessment and treatment.
Symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
While ADHD looks different for each individual there are some common symptoms. These often include struggling with time management, emotional regulation, self-control, organization, and getting started. Ultimately, these symptoms can be broken down into two “clusters”: inattention (trouble staying on topic or task) and hyperactivity/impulsivity (high levels of restlessness and energy). However, there are commonly overlooked symptoms as well.
ADHD Inattention Symptoms
- Fail to pay close attention to details, make mistakes often (errors on paperwork, poor test scores despite studying, etc.)
- Struggle to pay attention over an extended period of time (excessive daydreaming, the fear of being called on to answer a question you didn’t hear)
- Not always listening to when spoken to directly (someone has likely mentioned something about “not listening” in your life)
- Difficulty organizing yourself (messy room or bag, poor time management, missing deadlines)
- Frequently losing things (keys, wallets, cell phone, etc.)
ADHD Hyperactivity and Impulsivity Symptoms
- Fidgeting or squirming in your seat (tapping pen, twirling hair, bouncing leg)
- Feeling overwhelmed by ideas and having difficulty narrowing them down
- Leaving seat when expected to be seated (walking out of meetings, getting up and down during movies)
- Acting “on the go” or as if “driven by a motor”
- Blurting out the answer before the question is completed
- Often talking excessively
