Teenage Problems/boyfriend has ADHD


Hi my boyfriend has ADHD i just want to know more information about it and if its a bad thing for me. thanks.

I am not a doctor but I will tell you what I know. It stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.  It has been a controversial subject since I was younger.  It is a problem for some but there are stimulants given to 'slow' them down.  I think we all have an occasional ADHD or ADD.  If you look at the symptoms you will see a lot of people can be diagnosed as such.  However, keeping on task to follow through towards completion is half the battle.  

Go to:

for more information.  The disorder has to be diagnosed through an assessment by a trained professional.

I specialize in Juvenile Crime (Property Crimes - stealing from home, shoplifting, autotheft, joyriding, burglary, etc.) Juvenile Drug Use/Abuse (Prescribed or unprescribed ADHD, Xanex, Weed, etc.) Methamphetamine and Suicide Prevention. I do not provide legal advice, however I can point you to the laws in your state regarding consequences of your illegal actions or someone else's. I work face-to-face with juvenile offenders, both pre-adjudicated and adjudicated. I am the gap filler of statistics otherwise unheard of by the justice systems. I am the fly on the wall, seeing and hearing things that teens do not share with their parents. I then point them in the direction of helpful social services.


I am a statewide director of programs to address criminal issues that juveniles encounter. I find programs and implement them as well as provide training to professionals. I also work with youths throughout the various stages of their lives.

Extensive history of training by the Department of Justice, local universities, and Office of Juvenile Affairs. I am also a Certified District Court Family & Divorce Law Mediator. (I am NOT an attorney. Please do not confuse the two.) I am also certified in the area of Domestic Violence and a certified trainer for Healthy Relationships. If you reside in Oklahoma, and you are interested in training or free services, please contact me.
