Default Did this cause it?

When I was little I was abused and stuff and i was adopted at the age of 4.
I lived on the street for 3 years and stuff happend.
Could this be why I have ADD
I have been told it might by my mom a few years ago but I just wanted to know for sure.

My friends are what keep me going, what a great support system<3

We cant really tell you for sure, since we cant even see you
Go to a doctor and get checked out if you want to know

Although, I doubt it... I honestly don't see a connection between being abused and having ADD... To my knowledge most abused children are quiet and scared

you dont get ADD your born with it

or at least thats how it goes with ADHD but i think they are pretty much the same thing

The exact cause of ADD and ADHD are unknown.
There seems to be a genetic factor in the development of this disorder as it tends to run in families.
I haven't yet come across a page which links it to abuse though...

Truthfully, most people claiming ADD or ADHD just don't pay attention and there's no disorder. In some, it is very serious and very real.

The trauma, however, may keep you from using your brain to it's full potential. Therefore causing symptoms similar to ADD. You won't want to accidently think about what happened.

Also, saying "stuff happened" on the street could likely play a factor. Drugs?

It would've shown up when you were real little. Either it's all caused by environment or you were born with a minor case and it turned really bad.

The cause really isn't known. All they know is that it tends to run in families.
