The science has been clear since 1994, when Adult ADHD was declared a medical diagnosis. Still, the public harbors misconceptions. That means millions suffer needlessly. Moreover, that includes millions of couples who can't understand why their marriages or intimate relationships are so hard-sometimes despite many attempts at couple therapy.
Everyone knows someone with adult ADHD. Yet we misattribute the symptoms to anxiety, depression, or even laziness, selfishness, or moodiness. Moreover, we assume ADHD means 'little boys with ants in their pants.' In fact, childhood hyperactivity goes 'underground' as the person matures, resulting in a mentally restless state. Adult ADHD can affect every aspect of life, including education, employment, money-management, driving, sex, and health.
Meticulously researched by Gina Pera, Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.? is a comprehensive guide to recognizing the behaviors where you least expect them and developing compassion for couples wrestling with unrecognized ADHD-related challenges.
