You hear it more & more:

"Everyone has ADHD."

"ADHD is just a made up excuse for lazy people ."

"It's just bad parenting ."

And it's true, everyone experiences these symptoms from time to time, but that doesn't necessarily mean everyone has ADHD.

Symptoms can include: trouble organizing, trouble listening, trouble remembering, easily distracted, forgetting to do daily activities, have difficulty waiting turns, impulsive emotional responses, daydreaming, etc.

It comes with a unique perspective that can make succeeding in standardized systems a different challenge. It comes with advantages though, too! Like...
