“If you often lose your train of thought at work or spend too much time focusing on small tasks, you’re not alone. These are characteristics of a condition that is more common in children, but more adults are being diagnosed with.

Bill Johnston was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) around 2005. Johnston, from St. Paul, sought help after it was getting in the way of running his own business.

“One day I was sitting at my desk and realized that for three days I hadn’t produced anything,” said Johnston, who was 55 years old at the time.

Johnston said he would be at his computer, reach for the mouse, and forget what he wanted to work on.

“I think that’s something people think, ‘well, that happens to me.’ But that happens to me 12 times a day,” said Johnston.”
