Mental health awareness and acceptance has led to more people seeking help. One issue is Adult Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or formerly also known as ADD). Some adults with ADHD get better as they age but others continue to have symptoms that interfere with everyday life. Have you ever wondered why you struggled to pay attention? Why you were always so disorganized, and forgetful? Were you ever called "lazy" just because you couldn't start or finish something even though you tried your hardest? It most likely wasn't you! These are just some of the symptoms we find in adults with undiagnosed ADHD.

Maybe, you're not out (or fully out) and need medication to help the anxiety.
