I have WHAT? Accepting ADHD Diagnosis Later in Life
I have WHAT? Later Life ADHD Diagnosis
Linda Roggli, PCC
Women diagnosed with ADHD at age 40, 50, 60 and beyond are usually stunned, then relieved, and finally angry and a bit sad that their medical professionals missed the signs of ADHD for years. They also have a heightened sense of urgency about “fixing it” to make up for lost time. Even normal aging shows some cognitive slowdown, yet with the overlay of ADHD the symptoms of perimenopause and midlife are amplified exponentially. This session explores the complex relationship between A.G.E. and A.D.D., and offers some hope about a midlife rebirth of sorts.
