Adult ADHD looks and feels different than it did in childhood. ADHD is now seen as an executive function disorder. Simply put, executive functions are the mental skills that help you get things done. Planning and organizing. Starting and finishing tasks. Even managing your emotions. In adulthood, these higher order skills are needed to get through the day. This is why many first recognize the symptoms as adults. How can Dr. Bike's Do-It Days help you get things done?

ADHD is not a problem with volition or knowledge. 

You know what to do. You want to do it. 

Your brain won't let you take the steps.

Is Adult ADHD real?

People may say, “We all have problems with those things. Get over it. Life is stressful, and we all get behind.” This is true, to a point. At our most stressed and over-scheduled, all adults can temporarily fall into these patterns. But for adults with attention problems, these issues are chronic. They don't just stop. Even when the pressure's off, the brain will not cooperate for what seem to be the simplest things.
