I am only 30, but feel like my symptoms just keep getting worse with time no matter what counseling/medication/self-work I have going on.
Does anyone else feel like their symp... - CHADD's Adult ADH...
I would say that my symptoms have become more noticeable because I have gotten older. So it is not like my symptoms are changing a whole lot but because I am now 22 and not 7 they are less acceptable and are brought to my attention more. So it is more like other people notice them more. I also have noticed more struggles lately but I blame that on the current situation and not being in my normal routine.
One of the first things I learned about adhd was that more stress = more adhd symptoms. As I have aged, I have had more stress as responsibilities have grown. I assume it’s probably similar for lots of people. As the symptoms are more apparent, they are definitely easier to identify and seem textbook.
I was just diagonised a year ago at the age of 52. I would say yes they have become more noticable. Because things I once could do I have issues trying to do them now. I have a bad knee so exercising was a big thing for me. It helped me keep things in check. I am on medication now and it has helped a lot.
