One of the most common misconceptions about ADHD is that it’s something only kids can have. A stereotypical ADHD patient is a young, hyper male who can’t focus in school. But the reality of ADHD looks so much different. There are a lot of presenting symptoms of ADHD that go overlooked—and these symptoms often lead to strained relationships. Some less obvious symptoms of ADHD that adults experience include:
- Frequent tardiness, inability to be on time
- Forgetting dates and missing deadlines
- Anxiety and depression
- Impulsive decision making
Many of our adult patients have been diagnosed with various other mental illnesses like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or various sleep disorders, because over the years clinicians have failed to get to the root of their problems.
If your mental state leaves you feeling frustrated or discouraged: have hope. ADHD could be the culprit. Appropriate diagnosis and treatment could change your life.
What Our Patients Have to Say
The staff and physicians take the time to listen and figure out cases no matter how complicated! They’re all very down to earth and easy to work with as well! I highly recommend Greenville ADHD for any young person or adult seeking assessment or treatment of ADHD. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
Dr. Brannon changed my life. Having gone undiagnosed until I was 33, I struggled to hold a good job, maintain relationships, be prompt, or even prioritize a household to-do list. After years of believing I was always going to be flaky and kinda worthless, unable to stick with anything long enough to reap the benefits, I’ve been able to heal deep emotional wounds, learn new behaviors, begin a professional career, and create positive, lasting change in my life. I’d still be depressed and lacking purpose if it wasn’t for this amazing team!
Changed my life by, at last, providing an accurate mental health diagnosis. Forever grateful.
Dr. Brannon is a hero among us. I have been blessed by her expertise and dedication to helping those unique individuals to be a star in their own lives. She doesn’t pamper or tolerate whining. She wants her patients to become the person they were designed to be. That takes effort and expertise. She’s got both.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Brannon for nearly 3 years. I had received an ADHD ‘diagnosis’ several years earlier from another psychiatrist without any kind of testing. That doctor always believed that my primary problem was depression, and she was unwilling to make changes to my medications despite no improvement in 5-6 years. Going through the testing at Greenville ADHD and speaking with Dr. Brannon was seriously a life-changing thing. Suddenly, in my mid-thirties, I was understanding why I had been dealing with these problems for my entire life.
