Life can be overwhelming at times for any adult. However, as and adult with ADHD is not as easily explained.
We may frequently find ourselves disorganized, forgetful or absent-minded, and our level of “overwhelmed” very different and sometimes far greater than the average person.
If some of these things sound familiar, you may be struggling as an adult with ADHD. However, it is nothing to be ashamed of or fear. Recognizing the existence of life with ADHD is an integral part for learning how to more effectively manage ADHD, as an adult.
Control Life with ADHD
Fortunately, there are many ways to gain control of your life, but the first step in gaining that control is to get a better understanding of the disorder.
You might be wondering:
Who are you? How could you possibly understand what I am going through? What makes you so special?
Well, first and foremost, I'm not special. However, I am just like you. I have experienced and sometimes still experience, many of the same struggles that you do. I know exactly what you mean without needing to have you explain it to me.
Yes, I…”get it.”
The ADHD Brain
Heck, I understand that there are times that your brain is going in so many directions that you couldn't explain what's “wrong” if you tried. I can understand these things because I have spent the majority of my life living with ADHD, just like you.
The primary motivation behind creating Focus Here and Now was to help others who are going through many of the same struggles that I have and to help you to more effectively manage your life with ADHD.
No Cure for ADHD, Doesn't Mean No Hope
The fact remains that there is no “cure” for those with ADHD. However, there are many ways that we can more effectively manage our disorder. The section below includes a variety of articles, discussions, methods, routines and supplementation that has helped me to manage my personal struggles with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
This section will continue to be updated regularly and you should always feel welcome to comment and share below or on any of the pages throughout the site to talk about your own personal struggles with ADHD or the struggles with ADHD of a loved one.
Fortunately, as research and science continue to make great strides forward, we are learning that we have many more options than we had in the past. ADD and ADHD used to primarily be associated with children.
Understanding Life With ADHD
Many adults including myself, felt embarrassed or ashamed. In fact, many did not understand what was “wrong” with them.
They may have never considered that they lived with ADHD because they were also convinced it was a “child's” disorder. However, logic tells us otherwise. If there is no cure for those with ADHD, those children would eventually become adults living with ADHD.
Well…here we are. The good news is that we are gaining a better understanding of what we can do about it.
Adults and Children with ADHD: ADHD Statistics
Nearly 60% of children with ADHD will become adults with ADHD, which also equates to nearly 5% of the entire population of the world.
Adult ADHD is far more common than many people recognize and as we continue to learn more about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, we are realizing that it is less of a stigma and more help is available now than ever.

ADHD sleep disorder is also very common. Now, we are finding more with ADHD treatments and natural remedies that are available to help us get a more restful night sleep and wake up feeling more refreshed in the morning.
Very recently, our RestUp supplement review talked about a new and natural nootropic sleep aid that can help you to not only fall asleep more naturally but also allow you to wake up feeling far more refreshed!
