I’m an Adult Living with ADHD
A growing number of parents are learning they also have ADHD after witnessing their kids get diagnosed
CHAOS FOLLOWS MY HUSBAND, Peter, wherever he goes. In the morning, he can spend half an hour returning to the house to collect forgotten wallets and keys. His desk is overflowing with papers that need attention, and if he’s been using the computer, 30 browser windows are open. He’s been vowing to mend the bathroom door for six months now. Our son was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) a few years ago. I was reading about the condition in bed that same night and turned to Pete. “Who does this sound like?” Sure enough, it turned out he’d had the condition all his life, and had never known it.
