This particular subset of ADHD is late onset Adult ADHD, and if you don’t know about it, you simply won’t see it. The original observation was by Freud in the 1916 [Freud, Sigmund: The Complete Works]
- The Context: ADHD is Contextual Diagnosis not 24×7
- Freud brought this character problem up in a paper in 1916
- His solution was unconscious Oedipal conflict
- Saw deterioration in context of employment advancement
- Many who do well academically appreciate and benefit from the context of academic life.
- We’re now beyond all ADHD being only 4 year old children
- This appreciation of structure can last long into adult life
- These folks do not have the typical ADHD history
- School history does not have the bumps
- 2. The Correction:
- Approach is ‘cognitive issue,’ not “job issue”
- They are worse at home – less structure more variables
- They are worse anywhere they don’t have control – they must determine the structure.
- Many are medication resistant, and Neurotransmitter testing is remarkably helpful to begin the process.
