Adult women often live undiagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.(ADHD) Traditionally it is a condition thought to mainly impact males, however females tend to have more covert or less recognizable symptoms. ADHD comes in three types;inattentive, Hyperactive/impulsive and a combination of the two.

Common signs of ADHD in women may include:

  • Disorganization of surroundings at work and home
  • Easily distracted with noise /people making it difficult to complete tasks
  • You put a lot of energy looking as though you have it all together and to present as “normal”
  • In the midst of paper piles, unpaid bills, incomplete projects at home, work and/or in car
  • Your mind may often drift in conversations or meetings
