About aDHD

What is ADHD?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects both children and adults. Individuals with ADHD typically struggle with inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, which can significantly impact their daily life and functioning.

ADHD can also cause problems with executive functioning, such as planning, prioritizing, and initiating tasks. These difficulties can lead to problems in academic, occupational, and social settings.

While the exact causes of ADHD are unknown, research suggests that genetics, brain chemistry, and environmental factors may play a role in the development of the disorder. However, ADHD is treatable through a combination of medication, therapy, and lifestyle change.

Understanding the SIGNS

What Are The Symptoms?

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) encompasses three primary subtypes: Inattentive, Hyperactive-Impulsive, and Combined, each reflecting the diverse manifestations of ADHD in individuals.

In the past, the distinctions between ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD were made based on whether inattention or hyperactivity-impulsivity were more prominent. Today, we acknowledge that individuals often exhibit a mix of both sets of symptoms, leading to a more nuanced understanding of the condition.

Inattentive type/ Inattentive symptoms

Typically, this presents as mental hyperactivity or internal restlessness, which might not be immediately apparent to others. The individual might struggle with maintaining attention on tasks, keeping focused, and organizing activities, with these challenges stemming not from defiance or misunderstanding, but from the condition itself.

Hyperactive Type/ Hyperactivity

This term often refers to the physical expressions of ADHD symptoms, indicating that an individual might frequently move or fidget excessively, even in situations where such behavior is considered inappropriate. For adults, this hyperactivity could manifest as significant restlessness or excessive talking.

Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria

Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria (RSD) is characterized by a profound emotional reaction to actual or perceived criticism, rejection, or failure. In people with ADHD, RSD can intensify their emotional responses to social situations, causing extreme distress, shame, and pain. Situations that might seem like minor setbacks to some can evoke intense, distressing experiences for individuals with RSD, resulting in deep emotional turmoil that may not be visibly apparent.

Extreme Sensitivity:

Even mild criticism or perceived disapproval can trigger an intense emotional reaction, causing individuals to feel deeply hurt or demoralized.

Heightened Emotional Reactivity:

Emotions like anger, sadness, or anxiety may surge rapidly and intensely in response to perceived rejection, sometimes leading to outbursts.

Avoidance Behaviors:

The fear of experiencing rejection or criticism might prompt avoidance of situations, leading to social withdrawal or isolation.

Negative Self-Perception:

RSD can foster negative self-talk and undermine self-esteem, perpetuating a cycle of self-doubt and self-criticism.
