Interesting article from a Guardian writer on being recently diagnosed with ADHD.
This is a difficult column to write, but I have to try, since this is, after all, a family column and the shape of my family has been transformed. Just after Christmas, I separated from my partner of 15 years. I have left the family home and divorce proceedings are under way. No other party is involved.
ADHD is a brain disorder and should not be used as a convenient label for difficult children or poor parenting, the first major physical study of the condition has concluded. Researchers analysed the brain volumes of more than 3,200 people and noticed that those of patients with ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder) were underdeveloped in five key regions. Areas governing emotion and motivation were found to be smaller than in the general population, regardless of whether the participants were taking brain medication.
