“Like much of what ails us, ADHD is often misunderstood. The symptoms exist on a spectrum, and in some people—both children and adults—ADHD means you can’t sit still or struggle in school or at work. For others, it looks like losing keys and wallets, making impulsive decisions, and chronic distraction.
ADHD can be some of those things, but a person can also have ADHD and not display the typical symptoms. If managed well, and with help from a doctor, ADHD can present as the opposite of what most people think it is. Some people mistakenly believe that ADHD is a side effect of modern life and the rapid increase in handheld devices, but technology has gotten a bad (and factually incorrect) reputation as a cause of ADHD.”
