I am the paternal aunt of an 8yr old little guy with ADHD, BIPOLAR and Schizoaffective disorder. It was pure hell until we were finally able to get a firm diagnosis. He was EXTREMELY VIOLENT, especially with females, he would find a person's weakness and use that to his advantage. It was a nightmare.
Some question if kids actually have ADHD or if they are just hyper, but the truth might be shocking. All the kids are hyper, but the difference is that with ADHD the kid never gets exhausted.
I have a son who has been diagnosed with ADHD. I have never been diagnosed with ADHD but I suffer from anger issues. It is a daily struggle but with medication, it's becoming a little easier to deal with. I knew when my son was 2 years old that he has ADHD.
