Do you have undiognosed ADHD? Before you say "No" have a look at what undiognosed ADHD looks like in Adults.

Lets see what undiagnosed Adhd in Adults looks like from the outsideā€¦.

1: Consistently forgetful. i.e walking into kitchen and forgetting why your there
2: Start tasks but never finishes them or never gets round to starting them in the 1st place.
3: Drinks lots of coffee or energy Drinks and smokes or used to smoke
4: Has Anxiety and/or other mental health problems
5: Very unorganised. So much so that it is a shock when they do what they say they are going to do at the time they said they would. Is constantly late
6: Has trouble motivating themself to such a degree that they appear lazy.
7: Has mood swings
8: Often sais the wrong thing at the wrong time
9: Very impulsive and doesnt think before acting
10: Has gone from job to job because of boredom or perceived injustice in the workplace
11: Has constant relationship problems
12: Seems to have difficulty in controlling any emotion. i.e If someone annoys them they cant ignore the anger and must act on it. Even to their own detriment.
13: Has family members who are "Just as bad as them"
14: Gets very sleepy when doing tasks that involve lots of focus.
15: Is consistently distracted by things that are not relevant to the task at hand.

17: Has an addictive nature

I will stop there, the list would go on much longer if I listed the life course outcomes of this condition. I welcome any questions and would be happy to explain in detail why this list is related to Adhd symptoms.

  • Apr 6 2012: Im in the midle of making a video but I sure you that I will reply with the evidence, opinions and what I personaly think. I did not say I am pro Adhd, I am going the long way to explain what it is so you can make your own informed decision.

    If you have a bit of time to spare watch this and then research the speaker and the research done. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WroDEcG7tJc&feature=relmfu
