ADHD patients are constantly late. It is a big problem when they study at school or go to work. Because of this problem, ADHD people often receive low grades and/or get fired. They may be late even for the most important events in their lives such as a wedding, child birth, and so on, which may lead to the worsening relationships with spouses, friends, and relatives. They do it unintentionally, being unable to estimate the time required for certain activities.
Another commonly noticed factor is the emotional outbursts. ADHD individuals may be rather calm and shy, but it may change all of a sudden. Their mood is changing all the time, from cry to laugh, and vice versa. They cannot manage their emotions and feelings. They are also very sensitive to any changes. Usually, these people cannot even memorize what exactly used to upset them. Emotional turmoil is a consequence which the surrounding society experiences because of the ADHD emotional instability.
ADHD people just cannot be still. They are hyperactive almost all the time. It does not mean that they demonstrate their emotions all the time; instead, such people simply cannot sit or lay still. It’s a huge problem when it comes to the official meetings, conferences, or other important events where visitors should keep calm and silent. Family ties also suffer as it’s difficult to be physically close to the person who is always on the run.
It is difficult to set priorities when having ADHD. This problem is caused almost by every factor names before the absence of concentration, lack of short-term memory, obsession with triviality, etc. Those who cannot prioritize things often miss important parts of their life. They are unable to set preferences, so they risk losing their job or even family. Focusing on a small detail prevents ADHD patients from seeing the whole picture.
