Adult ADHD Treatment

If you or a loved one suffer from ADHD, you’re likely aware of the many criticisms that exist with the condition, particularly in adulthood. These criticisms can be damaging for self-esteem, self-confidence, self-image, and may even worsen symptoms. In this blog post, we will discuss how adults with ADHD are often criticized and misunderstood and what it means for them. We will also talk about how to get help for ADHD from a Licensed Clinical Psychologist. Learn more and reach out to Blair Wellness Group in Beverly Hills today!

What is ADHD?

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common mental health illness. It typically manifests as problems with focus, impulsivity, concentration, executive functioning, and hyperactivity. Many people with ADHD also experience symptoms of anxiety and depression. Adults with ADHD often have trouble keeping a job, maintaining relationships, and managing their finances. In addition, they may also struggle with substance abuse and other mental health issues.

Causes of ADHD

ADHD symptoms can vary from person to person. Some people with ADHD may only have problems with focus, while others may have trouble with impulsivity and hyperactivity. Symptoms of ADHD can also change over time. For example, a person with ADHD may be more hyperactive as a child and then become more impulsive as an adult.

Many people with ADHD also have comorbid conditions, such as anxiety, depression, or learning disabilities. Comorbidity is when two or more disorders are present in the same person. It is important to note that not all people with ADHD will have comorbid conditions.

Adult ADHD

While it’s common to hear about children being diagnosed with ADHD, it is prevalent among adults as well. In fact, it is estimated that between four and five percent of adults have ADHD. That’s about eight million adults in the United States alone.

However, many adults with ADHD are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. This is often because symptoms may not be as apparent in adulthood as they are in childhood. For example, an adult with ADHD may not be as hyperactive as a child with ADHD. Instead, they may have trouble focusing or completing tasks. As a result, they may be seen as lazy or disorganized.

Another reason why adults with ADHD are often undiagnosed is because the symptoms can vary from person to person. Some people with ADHD only have problems with focus, while others may also have issues with impulsivity and hyperactivity. Symptoms can also change over time, which can make diagnosis more difficult.

01
  1. Criticism of Adults Who Have Been Diagnosed:

    One of the biggest challenges that adults with ADHD face is criticism. Many people who are not familiar with the condition tend to misunderstand it. Instead of working to understand the complexities and causes behind it, they may think that ADHD is an excuse for bad behavior or laziness.

    This misunderstanding can lead to a lot of judgment and criticism from others. Family members, friends, and even strangers may not understand what you’re going through. They may say things like, “just try harder” or “stop making excuses.” This can be very frustrating and make it difficult to cope with ADHD.

    If you’re struggling with ADHD, know that you’re not alone. There are many resources available to help you treat your symptoms. Reach out to a Licensed Clinical Psychologist at Blair Wellness Group to learn more about how we can help you manage your ADHD.

02
  1. Types of Criticisms That Exist:

    There are many different types of criticisms that exist. Typically, certain types of ADHD behaviors are most commonly criticized, and they are generally consistent with the understanding that ADHD is due to a problem with executive dysfunction or poor self-regulation. However, in social settings, impulsivity is the most commonly criticized symptom of ADHD sufferers.

In What Ways Are Sufferers Criticized? 

 

There are a few different ways in which ADHD sufferers are commonly criticized. Typically, this criticism comes in the form of jokes at the sufferer’s expense. It can be carried out by comparing people to those with undesirable behavioral traits or trying to be funny by making remarks about someone’s inability to carry out tasks without exhibiting the symptoms of ADHD, which can cut deeply.

How Do Criticisms Affect Those With ADHD?

Criticisms can have a negative impact on those with ADHD for a number of reasons. Criticisms can be very hurtful and may make it difficult for people with ADHD to cope. Additionally, they may make people with ADHD feel like they are not good enough or that they are not trying hard enough. This can lead to feelings of low self-esteem and worthlessness. Lastly, criticisms may make it more difficult for people with ADHD to seek help because they may feel embarrassed or ashamed.
