ADHD is a condition that both children and adults can have.
The symptoms include an inability to focus, being easily distracted, hyperactivity, poor organization skills, and impulsiveness.
Not everyone who has ADHD has all these symptoms.
They vary from person to person and tend to change with age.
What does it feel like to have inattentive ADHD?

Is ADHD really that bad?
ADHD even increases the risk for non-psychiatric disease such as obesity, hypertension and diabetes. Perhaps most worrisome is that people with ADHD have a small increased risk for premature death.
