Dealing with adult ADHD
Ruston resident Letitia Bridwell suspected something wasn’t quite right most of her life. But, it wasn’t until she was well into her 50s that she finally found answers.
Bridwell was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder this year at the age of 58, and now she wants to connect with others in Lincoln Parish who have the disorder. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Bridwell is one of the 4.1 percent of the U.S. population that has adult ADHD. Of that number 1.7 percent have a severe case of the disorder.
