Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common problem among children. Some outgrow it. In others, it continues through adolescence and into adulthood.Children and adults with ADHD have trouble staying focused or paying attention. Many find it difficult to control their behavior. Many are also hyperactive, meaning they fidget a lot or can’t sit still.
Sadness touches our lives at different times, but usually comes and goes. Depression, in contrast, often has enormous depth and staying power. It is more than a passing bout of “the blues.” Depression can leave you feeling continuously burdened and can squash the joy you once got out of pleasurable activities.
Stress is bumper-to-bumper traffic when you’re in a hurry. It’s a worrisome illness, an argument with your partner, a job turning sour. It’s the need to care for an ailing parent and a pile of unpaid bills.Stress has many faces, and creeps into our lives from many directions. No matter what causes it, stress puts the body and the mind on edge. It floods the body with stress hormones.
