This is just a quickie to share a wonderful article that was recently shared with me...
ADHD is incredibly hard to explain or describe to those who don't have a personal connection to it.
Common practice has become to refer to Hyperactivity, Impulsivity and Inattentiveness as the three main symptoms but I've always felt that this paints far too simplistic a picture.
This article gives a wonderful insight into some of the other more common, but perhaps less discussed, ways in which ADHD may affect our lives.
Emotional hyper-arousal, for example, is one symptom that I observe in so many of the clients that I work with, yet the emotional component of ADHD is so rarely discussed.
I would strongly recommend this article to anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of ADHD and I'd love to hear any thoughts that you have after reading it!
