Everyone is different
The main symptoms of ADHD are:2
- Inattention - you may have a short attention span, are easily distracted, disorganised or forgetful, or find it hard to complete actions
- Hyperactivity and impulsiveness - for example you might tend to fidget, talk a lot, and often interrupt other people
Of course everyone experiences these kinds of behaviour from time to time, but you might experience these feelings more often, and they may often get you into difficulties at school, at home and even with friends.
Not everyone with ADHD is the same - for example some people find focusing on a task and remembering details (inattention) the most difficult, and others may find they have outbursts of temper and cannot control their moods (impulsive behaviour), and some people might experience all the symptoms.
