Famous People with ADHD

ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is one of many childhood conditions, that tends to follow those suffering from it, through their adolescent years and even adulthood. People suffering from this disorder have an inability to focus or pay attention, they're hyperactive in nature and have trouble controlling their behavior. They tend to slip away from other children during their childhood days, often escaping elders from noticing that these kids suffer from ADHD. When I found out that my favorite artist, Vincent Van Gogh suffered from ADHD, I wasn't surprised. He seemed eccentric, odd and different. Even Leonardo Da Vinci, was one of the famous people diagnosed with ADHD. There are three kinds of stages when it comes to ADHD, namely predominantly inattentive, combined hyperactive-impulsive and inattentive and lastly, predominantly hyperactive-impulsive. There is no known cure for this disorder, except treatments to ease one from the symptoms. One can still lead a normal life, even finishing school and having good lives thereafter. A lot of research is going into ADHD treatment, with new methods taking shape as time lapses. Find out who comes under famous people with ADHD, and if you know someone who suffers from the same, it should be pretty clear that things worked out just fine, and that they aren't alone.
