As you know, people with ADHD are both blessed and cursed. They are often lively, quick thinking, enterprising, independent minded and incredibly curious individuals who refuse to tread the trodden path. However, they often drift like clouds in the sky, day dream like hell and can’t focus on what is considered important – they may choose to focus on the flight of swallows through the windows than listening to the math’s teacher, often get in to trouble for not doing homework/School work and for acting without thinking. They often get marginalized and ostracized.
One of my young friends aged 11 described it as having a “super Ferrari brain with the breaks not working well and the satnav being shot at”. They often do not materialize their full potential, develop serious problems to their physical and mental health and end up having a lot of problems in their family and social lives as adults.
