ADD in women — ADD Tip o the day 97

ADD or ADHD starts in childhood.  Boys tend to have the hyperactive type, so they get diagnosed or punished or expelled, whatever, they get noticed.  Girls tend to have the “inattentive” type, they just sit there and daydream and don’t cause anyone any trouble and get ignored.  Both grow up and often to continue to have their symptoms although the hyperactivity tends to diminish.  But women will have the self esteem, self image, and shame problems, and they will tend to have trouble educationally, occupationally, relationships, and otherwise.  They are not as easy to diagnose, but proper treatment can be extremely helpful.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
