What is ADHD?
Imagine that your mind is always buzzing and wandering with a kaleidoscope of ideas, energy, and distractions.
It’s hard to focus on just one thing for very long; it can seem like time collapses and everything happens all at once. You’re impulsively “spilling over”: fidgeting, tapping, whistling, doodling, blurting things out, and running from one thing to the next. These are some of the ways people with ADHD describe it.
ADHD is a common medical condition that makes it hard for someone to sit still, pay attention, and focus. Someone with ADHD may be distracted, impatient, fidgety, and disorganized. ADHD is a brain disorder that affects the way people process and organize information and manage their impulses.
