I would be very interested to hear from adults who have been either diagnosed with ADHD or believe they may have ADHD. I believe i have always had it as my son was diagnosed with it recently & i find i have the same
problems as he is suffering now.are there any adults out there who have struggled with this who want to share experiences & offer mutual support?
i hope to hear from you soonxx

Hi there, you may wish to post this question instead to "Ask H2G2", rather than the forum for Newgate Prison. You can navigate to this site by clicking on the "Talk" button on this site.

Hello, I know this is a late one but we think my son has ADHD and also dyslexia (I have it so I know the signs) and we are wondering if you know of any good testers for ADHD. We watch a program on ADHD (sorry can't remember its title) but it gave no ref to the tester/s. We think it would be a good thing to get him checked out and see what to do from there.

Cheers
Nik

I have a 10 year old Daughter diagnosed as having ADHD and my sister has a son with ADHD and Autism I have yet to be diagnosed formally but all the signs and tests point to my having the condition.

I have unconciously developed coping strategies mainly making lists and getting others to 'nag' me out of daydreams and my wife understands how to calm me down and stop my distractions.

I could go on but below is a good start that wont bore you.....
If you need help or information you should visit www.adders.co.uk

good luck

I have the disorder too, but in lesser doses than some more extreme cases. I find that my conversations are rather disjointed; occasionally I'll jump from one bit to another without warning and others have a hard time keeping up. I also have something called hyperfocusing, which means that when I do get on track about something, I tend to put all my attention into it for a few minutes. But then my mind goes somewhere else and I totally forget about whatever it was I was doing. Forgetfulness is also a problem for me, but I do my best to cope.
