Adult ADHD and Child ADHD

Much more needs to be done in terms of educating people on what ADHD is, and who it can affect. The bottom line is, this lack of information means that many people are going undiagnosed with the condition, and are therefore living their lives in struggle, when there is no need to.

 

ADHD can be managed very successfully, but in order to know about these management techniques, a diagnosis needs to be made.

 

If you have ever suffered from both then you will know that it really does feel like there is nowhere to turn. Every single day is filled with doubt, upset, worry, dark thoughts, and clouds which never seem to lift.

It’s Like Living in Hell?

There is a saying that if you have depression it’s terrible, but if you have anxiety and depression together, it’s akin to living in hell.

 

Would you agree?

 

If you have ever suffered from both then you will know that it really does feel like there is nowhere to turn. Every single day is filled with doubt, upset, worry, dark thoughts, and clouds which never seem to lift.

Do You Life Your Life in Constant Anxiety?

Life can be a stressful business, and there are times and events which occur and cause us worry. For instance, if you are at college and you have a series of important exams coming up, it would be totally normal to spend a little time beforehand worrying about them. Another example could be if you have an upcoming job interview, and in the days leading up to it, you become anxious and have trouble sleeping. These issues should pass once the event has also passed.

 

There is a line however when anxiety becomes abnormal. For instance, if you find yourself worrying constantly for no real reason, you find that you are always overthinking, coming up with worst case, ‘what if’ scenarios, and that your mood is taking a turn for the worst as a result, this is not a normal case of anxiety.
