Even if theyre not chronic spenders, many people with ADHD tend to have other financial problems.
In my house, we spent a ton of money just on overdue library books.
My husband would forget to mail his mothers birthday present ahead of time, so wed spend a fortune overnighting it to Canada.
Unpaid bills, late fees, speeding tickets, higher insurance rates due to car accidentsall these things can add up to big problems.
Thats why the official name is AD/HD, with a slash, to indicate that the hyperactivity is optional; that its a subtype of a larger condition.
