How does ADHD ruin your life?
Untreated ADHD can cause problems throughout life. People with ADHD tend to be impulsive and have short attention spans, which can make it harder to succeed in school, at work, in relationships, and in other aspects of life.
Why do ADHD patients daydream?
When you have ADHD, daydreaming is intensified—and it is very difficult for the brain to self-regulate. This is the brain’s ability, in part, to move itself from one task to another. When you don’t have ADHD, you can start and stop tasks fairly easily. In ADHD, this ability to self-regulate is impaired.
What is wrong with the ADHD Brain?
ADHD is associated with abnormally low levels of the neurotransmitters transmitting between the prefrontal cortical area and the basal ganglia i.e., dopamine and noradrenaline. Dopamine is closely associated with reward centers in the brain, and also interacts with other potent neurotransmitters to regulate mood.
Is ADHD my fault?
No matter how often people remind you that attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) is a disorder, that it’s not your fault, ADHD affects every aspect of your life — and every one of your emotions. You lose things, you forget things, and you feel guilty.
What does untreated ADHD feel like?
