As Detective Monk often says, his OCD is a blessing and a curse. As a young adult with ADHD, I try to explain to ‘normal’ people what it is like to live with my ADHD – my very own blessing and a curse – every day. There are characteristics that are common to all of us with ADHD, but how we live with it at different stages of life varies. Here are some videos and a link that show the different aspects of ADHD life as children and adults. The last video is about an ADHD medicine but it does give descriptions of how medication impacts ADHD traits.
This link is of an interview of two kids. One has ADHD the other does not. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IO6zqIm88s
This one is a more comprehensive interveiw of two adults with ADHD interview after having a doctor’s diognosis.
Lastly, here’s a humourous view of attention issues that are common with ADHD people. Personally, I experience a lot of the events that are portrayed here especially the part where the lady leaves her phone on the windowsill.
