What if ADHD is just the effect of childhood trauma?
Anyone who has ever acted immaturely above the age of 25 has unresolved childhood trauma. If you think that you have ever acted childish past the age of 25, you do in fact have childhood trauma to start processing.
People with ADHD are just people with more childhood trauma than others. That is why there’s a childhood trauma/ADHD/developmental arrest effect in people in a sizable portion of the population. Also, why there is a varying degree of “ADHD” because people are stuck at a specific time in their life and everyone has had different lives they’ve lived. That is also why those with “ADHD” identify themselves with more archaic/chaotic norms of treating life. It’s more aggressive, reactive to their environments rather than their cognitive abilities. Their brain isn’t developed as much because of childhood trauma holding It back.
