Given that ADHD is a chronic disorder, it is not difficult to imagine cases in which stimulants, behavioral modification, or both are used effectively in childhood but not in adolescence due to factors such as refusal to take stimulants or lack of parental control over the contingencies that motivate the youth.

These effects do not reach degrees that could be considered to warrant a diagnosis of ADHD, but they may sufficiently predispose a child on these medications to be somewhat poorer at paying attention in school, or they may exacerbate the symptoms of a child who already has ADHD.

  • Which of these symptoms sounds the most familiar to you?
    Watch the rest of this video series featuring Dr. Judy instantly HERE:

  • I relate a lot to every ADHD symptoms but I don’t want to self-diagnose, am I the only one in that case?

    Also, if there’s any diagnosed people with ADHD can you tell me, is it hard for you to drive? Because it’s been hell for me trying to get details on the road, I try my BEST to focus but I still miss key elements. It’s a little bit better now but I seem to learn VERY slowly. And idk if it’s because of my attention span or perhaps I’m just dumb but this is hard.

    (Btw sorry for my English, I’m french)

  • Vyvanse Kicks In

    Hey Kati! Always so helpful seeing your videos. For me, the action of the dopamine from my meds is OK if I already planned out my day, and the fact I get the biggest dopamine rush from being helpful and productive at work helps keep me on track. BUT… if the structure and routine gets off track…THAT’S when I can become selfish. Party from being distracted and not able to empathize channel the energy in the way I want to. CNS on fire being like some fight or flight shit LOL. I also think my dose became stronger since working from home. I want to ask my Psych to reduce. I’m not intending to be selfish by talking about myself, but it’s what I know best, and I’m not qualified to give general advice haha. Maybe other can relate too ��

    I’ve grown a lot lately. I’ve sensed in it a lot of people resently, including you �� Not that you were ever missing anything ����. Growth is beautiful, and life long. Sometimes it’s gradual, sometimes it’s like…BAM! If you’re ready or not haha. There’s always a bright side, but it’s harder to find sometimes. Experience helps:) looking forward to the next one ✌☝��❤

  • Thanks a lot. I’ve been hard on myself my entire life, now I can empathize and relax a little…
    How can we make the best of this bad situation? With love from South Africa

  • When I get random hyper outburts idk how to like get the energy out so I get angry but I’m not angry and say stuff I don’t mean and the next day it’s like instant regret and embarrassment

  • It affects me in my relationships because they think I’m just careless and don’t listen. But really I try but forget so much and zone out. I can’t take medicine cause it’s hard on my kidneys:(

  • When your therapist only talks to your parents about issues and only consults them to help you, so you find your own help on YouTube with people who don’t talk down to you and ignore your suffering or make sure others are altering your brain while they hypocritically say they won’t let you alter your body

  • I only talk with my mom. Otherwise I don’t talk to anyone unless very necessary, like few words in months. Been like this for few years. Maybe m talking to myself all the time. Think I need a therapy.

  • 3:19 When you said that I became aware than I was tapping my foot.
    I didn’t know that’s why I have an aversion to jobs where I have to work a lot at specific times.

  • The most frequently missed subset in almost 30 years of practice after understanding “ADHD” from the descriptive world is the cognitive anxiety subset, not in the DSM, because thinking is not based upon appearances this video explains it:

  • I literally was evaluated as an adult and turns out I do have it, the only reason I went was because my wife had to constantly remind me to go to my own appointment. ����

  • only making it a bit into a video before losing interest and choosing a different one

    clicking on the video but instead of actually watching you have it minimized in the corner looking for the next video you’re gonna surf to

    -clicking on the video and instantly scrolling through/reading comments instead of watching video

    -playback speed in 1.5x because the video isnt going fast enough for you and its giving u anxiety

    -double tapping to skip forward 10 seconds because they take too long to finish a sentence and its irritating you

    -literally everything ends up on the watch later because it’s hard for things to intrigue your active interest but you feel unable to accept the fact that you will not watch a video after being made conscious of it

    -pausing midway through writing a comment to fidget and struggle with forcing ur brain not to abandon your train of thought

    -rereading things over and over again because they cant make sense the first time

    -forgetting what you wanted to say and feeling physical unrest until you FINALLY REMEMBER OMGGG

    -feeling like you have 80 thoughts you want to express all at once and end up talking really fast in fear of forgetting your thoughts

    -forgetting your thoughts

    -word salad when you try to talk a lot of the time because your brain and your body aren’t on the same page

    over explaining because you feel like people need to understand your point a specific way

    -when you focus on something it’s extremely intense to the point where you can get accidentally sucked into things for hours and not realize until ur body’s physical needs pull u back to reality and u realize the sun is gone

    -having to rewind because you dissociated or got distracted by your inner dialogue and realize at a certain point you have no idea what they are talking about

    -reread this comment dozens of times to make sure it was decent and I’m still not happy with the way I wrote things LOL

    -you prolly scrolled to the bottom of this comment after a few sentences to skim for key points bc it was too long

    Pretty sure I have ADHD and OCD

  • I just wish more people would be more understanding that we can’t help it because it really hurts when your trying your hardest and still fail. Its a neurological disorder.

  • Had to start this video over four times because I caught myself being completely distracted oh, and realizing I don’t remember what was said in the first 5 minutes. The last time I started it at one and a half speed, and was able to focus through almost the whole thing… anyone else? No? Just me? ��

  • I swear while trying to watch this To see if I can say “lol you suckers I have a mental illness”

    I was able to sing into my fan

    Make and re make my bed

    Literally go to my sisters room and steal some random thing

    And to only come back to only do the same thing again

  • I don’t know if I have adhd or not, I get lots of mood swings and have sudden bursts of energy but when I am trying to study, I don’t have a problem focusing, same for when I am doing a workout or homework or drawing, but I do read a word incorrectly like 7-8 times a day, and am often absent minded, also I use to use the same word every now and then, I really don’t know if this is a disorder or I am just stressed. This has been happening for like about a week and I think it’s gradually becoming better, I am all the time stressed out about it and keep checking my recent memory to see if I forgot something

  • When she explained how anxiety can accompany ADHD
    My life pretty much
    As a kid I struggled with just ADHD. Now I struggle with ADHD, Anxiety and Depression.

  • Anyone that is diagnosed ever feel extremely uneasy when making eye contact with someone? Almost like they’re judging everything about you so you have to look away for a second to not feel so awkward, then in focusing on that so much you can’t even really take in what they’re saying to you

  • My parents won’t take me to a psychiatrist yet yell at me for how unfocused and lazy I am. It intensifies my depression, which they think can’t possibly be real because we’re well off, and I have no idea how to cope. I just want some kind of help.

  • Anyone literally within a minute started looking at the comments and then thought, “shoot…FOCUS on the video!”, “OMG look what this dude said…”, “VIDEO…TYLER… VIDEO”, “that comment is HILARIOUS!”, “GOSH DANGIT WATCH THE VIDEO TYLER”. You know you have adhd when you literally can’t even focus on the video long enough that is talking about your ADHD just because it’s so hard to focus on one thing! Honestly will never understand how people’s brain don’t just jump and jump and jump to all different things unless that something is just SOOO interesting to me I usually am already looking at something and so on and so on. Is this anyone else lol??

  • i have adhd. i pop pills fo this shit i have the focused me. and the slap happy me. its a little difficult at times but fuck it we are who we are “be proud of who you are, dont ever let any one tell you you aret beautiful” (Eminem)

  • I sorry, but my attention was hampered by her fast talking. She appeared more interested in how she looked and impressing us with her knowledge. I would not want to go to her, if, I had this problem. It would be about her and not me.

  • Even though I didn’t get an answer from the video to whether I’m selfish or not, some tips here are new to me and I’m going to try them out! (Like saying “stop!” more clearly in my head).

    I think the question of selfishness is more ethical than psychological. Before I got divorced, I really struggled to carry my weight in the everyday household chores. Even though we don’t intend to be self centered, our actions can be.

    Many of my ADHD friends including me, are people pleasers, generous and caring. I really think that we can’t label people as selfish, just because their actions are often seem this way.

  • I have ADHD, High anxiety and depression. I have no clue what the hell I want to to with my life because I am very ‘limited’. Just graduated high school, need a break from school but I can’t just be sitting around doing nothing. All I want is to start a family of my own someday and I’m not sure I am going to be able to even find a partner because of how my brain works. I am so sick and tired of going through suicidal thoughts off and on, it wears me out and I am done. No matter how hard I try, when I try to talk to people about it I can’t get the words out of my mouth or I don’t think that they’d understand. I am 19 with no clue what I want to do with my life and I fuckin’ hate it honestly. I am so tired of feeling suicidal off and on.

  • Hi I’m Joe and i have a question. I was sexually abused for a long part of my childhood and now later in life I have been developing anxiety and depression and bad dreams. Lost my job haven’t had any motivation to do anything. I’m finally going to see a therapist Monday and well I’m scared about that but my question is if my therapist prescribes me medication does that stuff really help? A lot scares me but I’ve never had to takeanything before and don’t trust easily but maybe some advise?

  • It’s super hard to pinpoint adult ADHD because by the time we reach adulthood, we have somewhat become accustomed to expectations and rules which make it hard for people to show symptoms. Obviously, you can’t run a lap in class, I wish I could! but the reality is, the older we get, we need to become accustomed to social rules and mainstream followings. In doing so, we leave it up to resilience and mental agony which are much harder to detect as adult ADHD symptoms which could lead to a beneficial diagnosis. More or so, the effects of voiding out your ADHD in an attempt to be normal.

  • Hello Kati, my name is esmeralda and I always watch you’re videos because they make me feel better. I hope u keep doing them. My parents see that I’m always alone, have no social life, and barely communicate with most of my family. They always ask me if i need psychological help, but not in a good way. Then they call me crazy if I’ve been in my room for too long. I always deny it. I dont know if I should ask them for help. My parents are not very informed about mental illness and study stigmatize it a lot. They just assume everyone struggling with their mental health is crazy. My family is mexican. I’ve watched many videos about Avoidant Personality Disorder and I feeling I can relate to them all. I really dont want to self diagnose, but all the symptoms are there for me.and it really affects the way I socialize with people, if I do. And I jist dont want to be lonely anymore. I want to have friends and relationships and be surrounded by people who love me. I feel like if I explain the diagnosis to them, they’ll think its dumb because everyone worries about being liked. So it’ll make me sound selfish and self centered. Also I have been hospitalized for depression before, on my 6th grade year. But we haven’t talked but it since. While i do have depressive symptoms, AVPD (what I belive i have) really affects me and and I struggle with it everyday. But I feel like they won’t believe me. I dont knkw what to do. I’m 16 years old. Can you please give me some advice on how to ask them for help, after I’ve always denied it and argued with them about it?

  • A lot of people don’t recognize Dr. Ahonle on YouTube who has the permanent cure to sort out herpes virus from your body system completely, thanks so much Sir I really do appreciate your herbal medication

  • Lol…when I was a kid back in the 60’s and 70’s, I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. I actually made a schedule for every little action I should take during the day.
    Wake up
    Use bathroom 2minutes
    Brush teeth 3 minutes
    Wash face 2 minutes
    Make bed 5 minutes etc
    I followed this schedule for years.
    I had to have everything completely organized
    A home for everything and everything in its home.
    Everyone used to say I suffered from OCD.
    That wasn’t it. It’s the only way I could keep my mind clear enough to both, make time for responsibilities and life.
    This helped me all the way until retirement
    But now everything is a complete mess. I can’t distinguish my @$$ from my face.
    The kids are grown and gone. I’m no longer working. There are no immediate responsibilities that would give me immediate negative outcomes.
    I get those highs where I feel like I can conquer the world. I get started on projects and then I run out of attention and energy. My house is topsy turvey. Half done projects everywhere and a total mess because there is no home for all the stuff I have to finish projects.
    They also try to tell me that I’m manic depressive.
    I don’t really know what’s going on. I only know that from time to time, I adjust my diet to clean everything out.
    I get better. Everything becomes clear and the energy level and feeling of well being is through the roof. Unfortunately, I can never stay with such a restrictive diet. It’s only a matter of time for me to fall back into this unmanageable life.
