Oftentimes people may wonder if they are suffering from ADHD if they notice themselves having difficulty concentrating, having a difficult time completing projects, finding themselves easily distracted, or noticing themselves having difficulty sitting still. It can be common to experience these symptoms every so often, but if these symptoms are present much of the time and seem to interfere with daily tasks such as work or school, they may be signs of ADHD.
ADHD can manifest in a variety of ways such as frequently making careless mistakes, missing details, experiencing difficulty sustaining attention in a particular task, having difficulty with organization, frequently losing things or forgetting things, having difficulty following through with projects, feeling fidgety/ restless often, talking excessively, frequently interrupting others, and various other symptoms. ADHD symptoms tend to show up during childhood. People can experience various forms of ADHD such as the inattentive type, hyperactive or impulsive type, or a combined type.
ADHD is often treated with a combination of medications and behavioral interventions/ skills training/ psychotherapy.
Behavioral interventions may include teaching skills related to time management, breaking larger tasks into smaller tasks, scheduling breaks, setting small goals, or making lists.
It is also important to learn and treat other associated conditions that a person may be experiencing such as issues surrounding substance use or another psychiatric condition such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.
A diagnosis of ADHD can be made by a qualified professional and is important to help guide treatment.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms and are wondering if you have a diagnosis of ADHD, please feel free to contact Boulder and Denver area psychiatrist Dr. Rebecca Dolgin’s office to inquire about the possibility of meeting with her for evaluation and management suggestions regarding your symptoms.
