Women with ADHD often go undiagnosed throughout their lives because it is commonly thought of as a condition that mostly affects males. Though another reason for this is also because females tend to have less obvious symptoms than males.
In school, girls with ADHD symptoms are often overlooked because they are more likely to have inattentive ADHD, and unlike hyperactive/impulsive ADHD, there are no visible behavior problems. Listed below are some of the common symptoms of ADHD in females.
Your Workspace Is Cluttered
Your desk at work is piled with papers and other things, and even when you make a big effort to tidy it, it only stays clear for a day or two.
Being at the Office feels Difficult
The people and the noises make it very distracting and hard to get work done.
You Dislike Social Gatherings
You may dislike going to parties or social gatherings because they make you feel shy or overwhelmed, and you may also feel pressure to look or act normal.
You Find It Hard To Focus During Conversation
You may find that your mind drifts when you’re having a conversation unless you are the one talking or it’s a topic that interests you.
Friendships Can Be Difficult
You may find friendships to be difficult because you find navigating social rules complicated.
