Symptoms like trouble focusing, lack of concentration and organization, you might be suffering from ADHD, a psychological health disorder.

Lack of focus and concentration can signal a dangerous psychological issue that if left untreated can affect many aspects of your life.

Although sometimes you lack focus just because you’re tired or you haven’t had enough sleep the previous night, it can also mean you’re having other more serious psychological problems.

ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a condition where you have trouble focusing, lack of motivation and concentration, as well as many emotional problems.

This condition can develop as early as in childhood, but not necessarily. There are millions of people around the world who get this condition in adulthood.

To capture the nature of this condition, it is better to explain each symptom. As mentioned, these symptoms clearly affect your social, professional and private life up to a point where you’ll need to sign up for a therapy. However, better safe than sorry, right? ADHD, if noticed on time, can be successfully treated. That’s why you need to know the symptoms in order to recognize them and act.

Symptoms of ADHD

Trouble focusing

By trouble focusing, it means you are easily distracted, you have no time orientation whatsoever, you’re having difficulties completing task at the office or home and you can focus only on one particular issue. No multitasking – one thing at a time.

Lack of organization

You’re life is a mess: you’re having trouble prioritizing your tasks and time, you have no idea what you’re supposed to do first and what next and you completely suck at organizing your time.

Impulsive

In addition, you’re impulsively interrupting people’s speech as they talk, due to your lack of organization and focusing. So your social life is a complete disaster; people might start ignoring you and not want to hang out with you. You’re rushing through your tasks, trying to finish them on time but you still end up doing not one single thing right.

Keep forgetting things

Although we all tend to forget about things on a regular basis, this problem is beyond forgetting where you’ve put your keys. If you’re ruining your career or marriage because you keep forgetting things, then you’re probably suffering from ADHD. This forgetfulness affects your professional skills; you keep forgetting dates and deadlines. Also, it affects your personal life; you constantly forget completing household things or private dates, such as birthdays, anniversaries or other important events.

You lack motivation

Motivation is another problem. After you’ve experienced all of the previously mentioned symptoms, it is clear that in such a mess of a life, you lack motivation. And who wouldn’t? If you’re life is completely falling apart, it is perfectly natural to just give up.

Other emotional problems

Low self-esteem, poor self-image, depression, feeling of underachievement are the reasonable emotions when you’re facing the ADHD.

When and where to seek help?

Seeking help whenever you experience at least two of these symptoms is the best solution. Although it might not necessarily be ADHD, it is better to check it with a professional.

Therapy and group therapy are the perfect solutions for this disorder. Your therapist will work with you, you’ll share your daily problems with your support group and you’ll find ways to manage stress and other difficulties you’re experiencing. Positive thinking in group therapies really helps out.

Today, there are millions of apps that can remind you of every single thing you might need help for. Hell, everyone has a reminder on their phones if nothing else. But these apps are great, they can alarm you when to take a nap, when to drink water, when to surprise your loved ones, when you need to finish some work-related stuff etc.

The most important thing to remember is not to ignore this disorder; not for you, not for your loved ones. Everyone deserves help and needs to seek help.
