ADHD Symptoms in Adults

Person displaying ADHD symptoms as an adult

Many people are familiar with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects children. However, ADHD is not limited to childhood, and many adults continue to struggle with the symptoms of this condition well into their adulthood. At Honey Lake Clinic, we have an adult behavioral health center in Florida that specializes in helping manage ADHD symptoms in adults using a faith-based approach.

If you were diagnosed with childhood ADHD, chances are you’ve carried some of the symptoms into your adult life. But many discover the condition went undiagnosed in childhood, coming to recognize its symptoms in adulthood. Contact Honey Lake Clinic online or call 888.428.0562 to learn more about signs of ADHD in adults and our ADHD treatment in Florida.

What Are the Symptoms of ADHD in Adults?

ADHD doesn’t just affect kids. One in 12 American adults struggle with ADHD. If you are battling ADHD, life can feel overwhelming. The more hats you wear—career, family, household, relationships—the more demands there are on you, the harder it seems. But here is some excellent news: No matter how it feels, with the right help, ADHD is beatable.

The first step is understanding what you’re experiencing. ADHD’s symptoms, although generally similar, can look and feel a little different in every individual. Here are a few lists of signs broken down into sub-sets.

Do You Have Trouble Concentrating and Staying Focused?

Ask yourself the following:

  • Are you easily distracted by noises, activity, or other stimuli you try to ignore?
  • Do you have difficulty paying attention or focusing when reading or listening?
  • Are you having a hard time remembering details of conversations or directions?
  • Do you sometimes zone out without realizing it?
  • Do you struggle to complete tasks?

These adult ADHD symptoms may point to an underlying issue that requires professional help to manage.

Do You Have Difficulty Staying Organized and on Top of Things?

Ask yourself the following:

  • Are you chronically running late?
  • Are your home, office, car, desk, and other spaces messy and cluttered?
  • Do you tend to procrastinate?
  • Do you frequently forget appointments and commitments and miss deadlines?
  • Are you often losing track of or misplacing things?

If you have difficulty staying organized and on top of things, it could be a sign of adult ADHD. Seeking professional help can provide strategies and tools to manage these challenges better.

Do You Wrestle with Impulsivity?

Ask yourself the following:

  • Do you struggle with self-control or exhibit addictive tendencies?
  • Do you frequently interrupt or talk over others?
  • Do you often blurt out thoughts without thinking?
  • Are you prone to act recklessly without considering the consequences?
  • Do you have difficulty in social settings, perhaps sitting still or being attentive?

Improving your self-control and managing these impulsive behaviors can be a crucial step in managing adult ADHD.

Do You Have Difficulty Managing Your Emotions?

Ask yourself the following:

  • Are you easily stressed out?
  • Do you frequently experience irritability or a quick temper?
  • Do you wrestle with low self-esteem or a sense of insecurity?
  • Are you hypersensitive to criticism?
  • Do you have difficulty staying motivated emotionally?

If you recognize some of the symptoms in your life or in someone you love, we understand, and we can help. To speak confidentially with a certified counselor, contact Honey Lake Clinic today.
