Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Inattentive Type in Adults

ADHD in Women: Symptom Checklist and Self-Test for Adults

It cripples their self-esteem, their families, their lives, their work and their relationships. However, adult ADD, especially as it appears in women, often goes unrecognized. The symptoms of ADD are many. Some are more commonly seen in women and opposite the more recognized symptoms seen in men. This makes detection unlikely and diagnosis difficult.

The Hidden Struggles of a Woman with ADHD

ADHD in women often goes undiagnosed. Too many women grew up being called lazy, selfish, spacey, or dumb because their symptoms were ignored or disregarded. If you endured a childhood of insults and low self-esteem, take this self-test to see if you exhibit common symptoms of ADD. Then share the results with your doctor before seeking a diagnosis. Which means that, if you are the mother of a child with attention and impulsivity problems, chances are quite good that you have ADHD, too.
Knowledge of ADHD in women at this time is extremely limited as few studies have been conducted on this population. Women have only recently begun to be diagnosed and treated for ADHD, and today, most of what we know about this population is based on the clinical experience of mental health professionals who have specialized in treating women. ADHD in young girls is often overlooked, the reasons for which remain unclear, and many females are not diagnosed until they are adults. Frequently, a woman comes to recognize her own ADHD after one of her children has received a diagnosis.
