What is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?


So ADHD  is a medical condition which first appears in childhood and then I really like eating ice-cream after But some trees are not green I don’t know why maybe because they don’t have chlorophyll.
Get it?  No?

Well, this is something that happens to a person suffering from ADHD. Their mind just wanders around, they are easily distracted and forgetful in daily activities.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as the name suggests, is a disorder where the individual lacks attention and is very hyperactive in nature. Individuals having this disorder tend to be impulsive in nature because of their lack of attention.

It is a brain disorder which often begins in childhood and continues into adulthood. Symptoms of it typically first appear between the age of 3 and 6 and the average age of diagnosis is 7.
It is diagnosed approximately three times more often in boys than in girls.


The first thing that you should know is that it’s nobody’s fault. The cause of this disorder can be both – genetic as well as outside trauma.

Factors that lead to trauma can be exposure to toxic substances, injury to the brain from trauma, brain tumor, strokes, or diseases.

Types and Symptoms 

Types of ADHD

Inattentive Type: People of this type are natural dreamers. They do not pay attention to details, make careless mistakes, and find it hard to pay attention. They also tend to lose their things.

Hyperactive-Impulsive Type: People of this type are always in motion, impatient, and uneasy. They talk too much and run or climb at inappropriate times.

Combined Type: This is the most common type of ADHD. People of this type have symptoms of both inattentive and hyperactive type.

The other side of ADHD

Having ADHD has its own advantages. People who have ADHD –

  • tend to be more creative
  • think out of the box
  • have a good sense of humor
  • are fast speed readers
  • hyperfocus, i.e., have a great concentration
  • tend to be good inventors
  • have a strong sense of fairness
  • have a willingness to take risks
  • are persistent
  • have engaging conversational skills

And they are also more likely to be a successful entrepreneur.


Why fit in when you were born to stand out? Because “different” is not bad; in fact, it can be incredibly good.

ADHD shouldn’t have to be a negative factor in one’s life. A person can use their limitations to do other great things. For example, a person with ADHD can use their habit of daydreaming to be thoughtful creators or inventors.

ADHD isn’t a bad thing and we shouldn’t feel different from those who have this disorder. They are just like us and we are just like them.
