"Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is an early-onset neuropsychiatric disorder that affects 3% to 7% of school-age children and 4.5% of adults. Its pathophysiology is thought to involve the dopaminergic and nor-adrenergic pathways associated with attention control and impulsivity."
I am a 40 year old living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I was diagnosed with Adult ADHD a few months ago. The diagnosis itself was enlightening, because I was able to stitch together a redemptive narrative to many of the significant struggles and pains I've experienced in my life. I am on medication now to help me maintain attention appropriately and to help me with my behavioural and mental impulsivity and hyperactivity.
Thanks for dropping by and reading about my journey.
