ADHD is part of the coupleship system when one or both adults have ADHD. Since no two adults with ADHD express the same, it's important to take the uniqueness of each into consideration.
An ADHD family system is definitely more than the sum of its parts. The interactions between multiple neurodiverse individuals offers the opportunity for creative modifications for effective and satisfying day-to-day living.
During this time of important life choices, young brains have not yet fully matured (prefrontal cortex) until at least age 25. This is the part that helps control impulses, have the foresight to come up with long-term strategies and determine what you will do with your life.
First challenge, correct identification. There is a temperament component beyond IQ - greater intensity and increased levels of emotional, imaginational, intellectual, sensual and psychomotor excitablity - all normal for you.

I can sum up my experience with Barbara in two words : life changing. She is one of the most intelligent people I have ever met, and her abilities and experience seem endless. Barbara is enormously perceptive, and has a wonderful way of giving you a different perspective on what may be stopping you from achieving your objectives. Simply put, she quickly gets to the heart of things and brings about real and lasting change, from the inside out. Barbara has an innate talent that cannot be quantified in any other way than by working directly with her. There is just something about her that is truly compelling. Working with Barbara was one of the most important, life-changing decisions I have ever made. You will not be disappointed. ~ L.V.
Working with Dr B has been more helpful and encouraging than I can say, and she has inspired real change in my life. Because of steps she encouraged me to take, there are several tangible achievements she helped me accomplish, for example: following up on a job opening and getting hired on the spot, changing my perspective on tasks I dreaded to instead addressing them promptly and with ease, and learning to be a kind encourager to myself, treating myself with care. I am forever grateful for her willingness to be transparent in showing that it can be done, that we can do it! Dr B is a pleasure to work with; I look forward to continuing to meet with her many more times in the future. ~ R.O.
