Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is not common only in children, adults too are faced with this. While it can be easily identified in children, in adults the symptoms are a lot more subtle and difficult to identify. It leads to poor relationships, performance, self-esteem and several other associated problems. This is an illness which is really tough to deal with, only recently have doctors been able to learn how to treat this in a better way.

Among the most common symptoms of this are problems in focusing or concentrating on one thing, becoming easily and overtly excited, inability to control one’s feelings and emotions, impulsiveness, aggressive responses and actions. Paying attention to present issues, anxiety and depression are the other common things that a patient suffering from ADHD is faced with.

Susan Rachele is one such patient who has been a sufferer of this disease from a long time now, but she is an ideal to follow in this case. She has learned to accept her situation and tries to implement ways and plans of controlling her uncanny behavior as an outburst. She believes that positivity is the best cure for this problem. Only if one can think positive, all the negative attributes that are a product of this ADHD can be turned into positive ones.

But because the negative traits are so prominent, most people related to these ADHD patients tend to overlook it. The impulsiveness and hyperactivity can all be channelized into more useful activities, instead of getting irritated with it. One good quality of ADHD patients that is often overlooked is, if they take a liking towards anything, they get completely engrossed into it and have a much more thorough knowledge of it than any other normal person, in the same given situation. They sort of lose themselves into it, until and unless they are totally convinced that they have it within their grasp and all that is there to know about it.

Dealing with those affected with ADHD, whether children or adults like Susan Rachele, being patient is of utmost necessity. There is no way, that you get carried away by the rough situation and counter react to their reactions. Things have to be simplified for them so that they are easily able to manage their daily chores without difficult. This will help in reducing their opportunities of getting irritated and as a consequence, they are able to handle their whimsical behavior.

There are also reported cases of the diet of a person being responsible for the difficult behavior of an ADHD patient. There is a possibility that one may be allergic to certain types of food, if care is not taken by the people around the ADHD patient, he/she could land up eating those and getting the allergies, which in the bargain will activate irritable behavior, and other negative traits of the person. So, even the diet of these patients need to be constantly monitored in order to avoid unwanted and unpleasant situations.
