Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, causes problems with physical activity levels, focusing on family and control of impulses. Even though some people prefer to believe that men and women who are overly active or cannot focus on family have behavioral issues that can be corrected with good discipline, studies show that ADHD is a real condition, possibly with genetic or environmental causes. The Center for Disease Control recognizes ADHD is one of the most common neurobehavioral disorders that are diagnosed in both adults and children. Though many adults often have difficulties sitting still or focusing on tasks, those with ADHD can lead to progressively more serious problems at work and at home. Not all men and women with ADHD have the same degree of physical activity. Some may have a low degree of activity, while others may be highly active. Symptoms include chronic daydreaming, fidgeting, constant motion, inability to listen, inability to sit quietly, problems taking turns, speaking out of turn and difficulty paying attention. Researchers believe ADHD may have a strong genetic component because of their work with twins. Other proposed causes may be exposure to lead, alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy, low birth weight, premature delivery and brain injury. No research concludes that poverty, family problems, and too much television or consuming large amounts of sugar causes ADHD, though these factors may exacerbate symptoms. These are serious problems that can seriously affect your marriage. If you see any of these symptoms in your spouse or partner you need to pick up a copy of this book : The Effect ADHD Has On Marriage by Terence A. Williams that will help you not only understand your spouse better but alleviate a lot of the stress you are going through.

About the Author
Terence Williams has studied the occurrence of ADHD and has cited that neurobehavioral professionals recognize three different types of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The Predominant Inattentive type demonstrates as difficulties performing tasks, paying attention, organizing tasks and following directions. The person may forget details of performing tasks or may become distracted from the task at hand. The Predominantly Hyperactive or Impulsive type has difficulty sitting still, may run around constantly, and find many outlets for physical activity rather than sit in one place. The person may also interrupt people in conversation, grab things away from people at inappropriate times or speak out of turn. The impulsivity can demonstrate as frequent accidents or injuries. The Combined type of ADHD can show all of these symptoms in approximately equal amounts. Terence has been married for nine years to a wife that suffers from ADHD and it is his self-taught expertise that has allowed him to have a long and healthy relationship. You should pick up a copy of his book The Effect ADHD Has on Marriage to gain more insights into how you can save your marriage and how to recognize the signs in your spouse.
