Approximately 4% of adults live with a neurological difference called ADHD (at times ADD if they are not hyperactive). In short, it impacts their abilities to regulate motivation, energy, emotions and attention, and to manage time, organisation and structure.
Such difficulties with self-regulation and executive functioning may impact the daily experience of adults living with ADHD, at home, at university or at work. It may be very confusing, and often impact one's self-confidence, performance, and well-being - all the more for people who have never been diagnosed or don’t understand why they feel different from others. Many develop self-blame, anxiety and low self-esteem affecting their well-being.
ADHD has actually both challenging & bright sides. It may lead individuals to face endless procrastination and daily forgetfulness issues… or to demonstrate impressive creativity and problem-solving skills. Indeed many adults with ADHD associate their unique strengths and achievements to this different brain-wiring!
