Women with ADHD eBook: How Hormones, Symptoms & Late Diagnoses Impact Females

$11.95

  • Product Description

    For many decades, ADHD was considered a hyperactive behavior problem in young boys. Medical professionals frequently dismissed or misdiagnosed the signs of ADHD in girls and women. Symptoms were blamed on hormones or mistaken for comorbid conditions like anxiety, depression, or even bipolar disorder. Without adequate treatment, females faced academic frustration, social setbacks, and shame that can last a lifetime.

    This eBook is here to help, providing ADHD-friendly tips from ADDitude editors, readers, and experts. You’ll learn:

    • What ADHD is, and how symptoms of inattentive, combined, and hyperactive-impulsive subtypes manifest
    • How hormonal changes during PMS, pregnancy, perimenopause, and menopause affect ADHD
    • Guidelines for finding an ADHD doctor
    • Solutions and tips to get things done
    • Strategies to improve interpersonal relationships
    • Expert advice for managing motherhood
    • Why science has paid little attention to female manifestations and impairments, and how to change this
    • What it feels like for a woman to live with ADHD
