With Asheville holding a number of free events in honour of ADHD Awareness Month, Yourwellness Magazine explored how ADHD impacts adult life.

During October, which has been designated ADHD Awareness Month, a number of related free events are planned in Asheville, North Carolina, Citizen-Times.com reported October 7th. The article, “Free Asheville events promote ADHD awareness,” noted that Asheville’s ADHD Centre for Success is sponsoring a series of free, interactive and informational events throughout the month, including an ADHD Awareness Presentation by coach and licensed clinical social worker Rudy Rodriguez, a film screening of documentary ADD & Loving It?! and a meet-up group for adults in the area with ADHD.

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine took a closer look at how ADHD affects adults. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘ADHD comes with two potent symptoms which, when put together, can cause all sorts of problems. These are hyperactivity and a powerful impulsiveness. Sufferers will act without thinking, often irrationally and not to their best interests. At a young age this might not be too damaging, their school-work might suffer or they may get into trouble with their teachers more often than other kids but they won’t be endangering themselves. As they enter their teens, a period already roiling with moody hormone driven angst, their disorder can become much more dangerous.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/01/adults-and-adhd/#sthash.bWv0D28C.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine commented that it’s common for teenagers who have ADHD to get themselves into problems with the police as being ‘naughty’ becomes being ‘criminal’. Adults are responsible for their own actions and the defence of having ADHD and struggling with the condition isn’t a defence any more. Yourwellness Magazine noted there are potent drugs aimed at countering the symptoms of ADHD, but before they can have any effect the sufferer has to confront his/her condition. Yourwellness Magazine explained that without the strength to admit there’s a problem there can be no chance of fixing it, which is the same with most psychological disorders.
