In this post, I’m going to talk about something that may not be common knowledge. Something that we may not really think about or be aware of.
The topic is ADHD and comorbidity. By that, I mean ADHD and another condition.
Not many know that many with ADHD also have another condition, such as another learning disability, or depression, or anxiety, for instance. There are several other conditions that individuals may also experience on top of ADHD.
More than half of kids and adults with ADHD suffer with another condition. ADHD is not always a stand alone condition, like it may be thought.
It is important to remember that these other conditions may be due to having to manage the ADHD symptoms.
It’s important for those with ADHD to be aware of this and get help if they struggle with something other than ADHD. As hard as it can be, it is always better to get help, if you feel like it could be beneficial.
