ADHD IN ADULTS

High functioning ADHD can look like:

    • Feeling like you have great ideas, but are unable to organize them or act on them.
    • Hitting a wall or shutting down in the middle of the day, or after going for hours.
    • Feeling not good enough or an imposter.
    • Losing or misplacing things.
    • Difficulty prioritizing when faced with multiple tasks.
    • Mundane tasks are avoided or postponed.
    • Dreading facing deadlines and time constrained tasks.
    • Trouble focusing on the task at hand.
    • Procrastinating: difficulty starting tasks.
    • Difficulty ending tasks; feeling like you can go on and on.
    • Feeling restless and fidgety while working (leg jiggling, playing with objects on
    • your desk, moving in your chair).
    • Feeling behind. All the time.
    • Messy workspace, desk, car, purse, papers.
    • Exhaustion from trying to stay organized, hold it together, and keep up.
