Do you have ADHD or ADD?
Sure, there are more kids who get diagnosed with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and Attention deficit disorder (ADD), but you can also get it when you’re older. Or, sometimes, it can last into adulthood. The main symptoms are easy to spot: inattention, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. But, these may appear differently when you’re an adult.
Do you feel like you have low self-worth?
You feel like as a woman, life is hard. You’ve got a lot of responsibilities. Work, family, home, relationships — you’re drowning and don’t feel like you can keep up with everything, which impacts your self-worth. But you don’t have to feel like you have to do it all. And, you don’t have to beat yourself up over it, either.
Hypersensitivity to criticism
Are you hypersensitive to criticism?
You might have been taught to always be a good girl and always live up to expectations. This can make you have a thin skin, and you might easily overreact to even the mildest of criticism.
No Sense of Time
Do you have a poor sense of time?
Time management is a common problem if you have ADHD. Always running late is a good indicator of this.
Getting Mad and Upset Easily
Do you get easily upset and frustrated?
If you’re usually feeling angry about something — ANYTHING — you might have ADHD.
Are you depressed?
Depression is a very common symptom of ADHD — one in four women experience it.
