Common misconceptions have caused such troubling disturbances in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. Most parents and teachers can tell you that their ADHD children are the most bright, loving, compassionate individuals. Why should there be such a stigma around it in this day and age?
Hi. Iím here to talk to you about ADHD. One of the common misconceptions that I find in my practice is that adults are starting to show up saying that they see a commercial on TV, and they wonder if they have it, you know? Sometimes they tell me that they were diagnosed as children and were told they grew out of it. Now in my opinion, this doesnít seem to be the case. It seems to be more so that it seems to follow along into adulthood for a good percentage of the people out there. Now, you wonder, what does this have Ė like how does this impact you? What does this mean? Some people seem to manifest it in some other ways that seem to be destructive to them, whether itís divorce or having poor relationships, smoking, drinking. And I seem to find that people that try to find a cause of it seem to get to the underlying root. So if you have any questions, find a local doctor, someone thatís knowledgeable in ADHD, and you should do good.
