Do you find yourself repeatedly facing organizational challenges (time management difficulties, missed appointments, frequent tardiness, unfinished projects, etc.)?
Everyone has some of these symptoms occasionally, but those with adult ADHD have more of these symptoms consistently and to a level of impairment. These symptoms may be fairly consistent, vary according to the situation or fluctuate without control.
