    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodivergence characterized by excessive amounts of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that are pervasive, impairing in multiple contexts, and otherwise age-inappropriate.

    ADHD symptoms arise from executive dysfunction, and emotional dysregulation is often considered a core symptom. In children, problems paying attention may result in poor school performance. ADHD is associated with other neurodevelopmental and mental disorders as well as some non-psychiatric disorders, which can cause additional impairment, especially in modern society. Although people with ADHD struggle to focus on tasks they are not particularly interested in completing, they are often able to maintain an unusually prolonged and intense level of attention for tasks they do find interesting or rewarding; this is known as hyperfocus.

    There's also an overlap with Autism and ODD (oppositional defiance disorder), since the chances of having ODD from ADHD is higher and having ADHD also increases the chances of having autism. As you could expect, having autism and ADHD is paradoxical and leads to the person having these neurodivergences leads to having a significantly harder life, also partially due to discrimination from society at large.
