Struggling to focus? You may have adult ADHD

After forgetting her house keys inside her gate on the floor, Antoinette Muller decided she had to get checked out. Her doctor recommended medication that helps with focus. The change she felt after going on medication was so remarkable, Muller realised there was something bigger going on.

Muller did research, went to a psychologist and was diagnosed with adult ADHD. The change since going on treatment has been remarkable. Muller says that all the issues she had since childhood with regards to being distracted, struggling with tasks or being emotional eased up.

It's like when you put on glasses for the first time. And you go wow, this is what the world looks like. It's not a high, it's just a feeling of calm and normality.
