ADHD

Attention Deficit hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is frequently the source of distress in couples.
• People with this problem have difficulty focusing on a subject (particularly when the subject is not of interest).
• The individual with ADHD might get up in the middle of a sentence and walk into the other room because they lack the attentional capacity to stay with the present interaction.
• Attention and memory are both executive functions of the brain meaning that the same brain region governs attention and memory so people with ADHD often have problems with memory.
