Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD or ADHD) is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder. It is the most commonly diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children affecting about 3 to 5% of children globally with symptoms starting before seven years of age. It is characterized by a persistent pattern of impulsiveness and inattention, with or without a component of hyperactivity. ADHD is diagnosed twice as frequently in boys as in girls, though studies suggest this discrepancy may be due to subjective bias. ADHD is generally a chronic disorder with 30 to 50% of those individuals diagnosed in childhood continuing to have symptoms into adulthood. As they mature, adolescents and adults with ADHD are likely to develop coping mechanisms to compensate for their impairment.
Well in going over many cases on ghost and paranomal investigation teams as well as reading Troy Taylor's many books I have come to the conclusion that ghosts all suffer from a form of Paranormal AD/HD or ADHD
Though previously regarded as a childhood diagnosis, ADHD can continue throughout adulthood. Four percent of American adults are estimated to live with ADHD. But many belive and state that AD/HD or ADHD does not exist. And we also know many say ghost are not real either?
ADHD management usually involves some combination of medications, behavior modifications, life-style changes and counseling. But what if your dead and you did not get this or any kind of help when alive. Then you know as we all do that everything from insanity to sexual and Violent emotions carry over past death.
ADHD and its diagnosis and treatment have been considered controversial since the 1970s. The controversies have involved clinicians, teachers, policymakers, parents and the media, with opinions regarding ADHD that range from not believing it exists at all to believing there are genetic and physiological bases for the condition and also include disagreement about the use of stimulant medications in treatment. Most healthcare providers accept that ADHD is a genuine disorder with debate in the scientific community mainly around how it is diagnosed and treated.
Certain locations in my oppinion is that the higher the locations percentage of ghosts or hauntings the higer the incident of Paranomal ADHD .
Paranomal Ghost ADHD Symptoms
The most common symptoms of ADHD are:
*Haunted high level phenomena. Impulsiveness: The ghost seems to be acting before thinking of consequences, jumping from one haunted activity to another, disorganization, tendency to interrupt peoples' conversations. Most likely to be photographed, EVP capture PK activity. Polterghiest fall into this catagory.
* Paranormal Hyperactivity:Spirit or ghosts restlessness, often characterized by an inability to sit still or haunt one room or location, fidgeting feelings are said to be picked up by psychics, squirminess, climbing on things, restless sleep. Foot steps in the night. Rocking sounds or repetive noises in wall attics and matresses.
* Paranomal Inattention: These ghosts are easily distracted and the easiest to be rid of. These or the type of ghosts that might haunt you once a year or every decade. They are known for not finishing a haunting, Often this ghost might frighten you once then dissapear forever Often called travelor ghosts because they move from home to home or person to person.
The DSM-IV categorizes the symptoms of ADHD into three clusters, referred to as subtypes: (1) Inattentive; (2) hyperactive/impulsive; and (3) combined. Most people exhibit some of these behaviors but not to the point where they significantly interfere with a person's work, relationships, or studies. ADHD may accompany other disorders such as anxiety or depression.
Hyperactivity is common among children with ADHD but tends to disappear during adulthood. However, over half of children with ADHD continue to have some symptoms of inattention throughout their lives. And these I bleieve are the ones that haunt us. Through my work as a necromancer I call of several types of spirits, spooks and ghosts. And theuough my questioning of them I feel I am Learning a lot about paranormal mental behavior.
Inattention and "hyperactive" behavior are not the only problems in children with ADHD. ADHD exists alone in only about 1/3 of the children diagnosed with it. Many co-existing conditions require other courses of treatment and should be diagnosed separately instead of being grouped in the ADHD diagnosis. Some of the associated conditions are:
* Oppositional defiant disorder (35%) and conduct disorder (26%) which both are characterized by anti-social behaviors such as stubbornness, aggression, frequent temper tantrums, deceitfulness, lying, or stealing.
* Primary disorder of vigilance, which is characterized by poor attention and concentration, as well as difficulties staying awake. These children tend to fidget, yawn and stretch and appear to be hyperactive in order to remain alert and active.
* Mood disorders. Boys diagnosed with the combined subtype have been shown more likely to suffer from a mood disorder.
* Bipolar disorder. As many as 25% of children with ADHD have bipolar disorder. Children with this combination may demonstrate more aggression and behavioral problems than those with ADHD alone.
* Anxiety disorder, which has been found to be more common in girls diagnosed with the inattentive subtype of ADHD.
* Obsessive-compulsive disorder. OCD is believed to share a genetic component with ADHD and shares many of its characteristics.
ADHD may be seen as an extreme of one or more continuous traits found throughout the population. ADHD is a developmental disorder in which certain traits such as impulse control lag in development when compared to the general population. Using magnetic resonance imaging of the prefrontal cortex, this developmental lag has been estimated to range from 3 to 5 years. These delays are considered to cause impairment. ADHD has also been classified as a behavior disorder. A diagnosis of ADHD does not, however, imply a neurological disease.
What if Ghosts and ADHD do not exist?
ADHD is classified as a disruptive behavior disorder along with oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder and antisocial disorder. Many think chemical imbalances in the brain or more paranomal then normal.
Could these ghosts having been brainwashed during life to believe they are impaired and continue to be in death.
Adult Ghosts Paranomal ADHD
It has been estimated that about eight million adults have ADHD in the United States. Untreated adults with ADHD often have chaotic life-styles, may appear to be disorganized and may rely on non-prescribed drugs and alcohol to get by. They often have such associated psychiatric comorbidities as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, substance abuse, or a learning disability. A diagnosis of ADHD may offer adults insight into their behaviors and allow patients to become more aware and seek help with coping and treatment strategies.
There is controversy amongst experts on whether ADHD persists into adulthood. Only recognized as occurring in adults in 1978, it is currently not addressed separately. Obstacles that clinicians face when assessing adults who may have ADHD include developmentally inappropriate diagnostic criteria, age-related changes, comorbidities and the possibility that high intelligence or situational factors can mask ADHD symptoms.
Oppositional defiant disorder is a psychiatric category listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders where it is described as an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile, and defiant behavior toward authority figures which goes beyond the bounds of normal childhood behavior. It is what I believe the ghosts of this world in majority suffer from.
With real horrible scary hauntings we notice that a pattern of negativistic, hostile, and defiant behavior of a ghosts usually lasting at least 6 months, during which four (or more) of the following are present:
Note: Consider a criterion met only if the behavior occurs more frequently than is typically observed in individuals of comparable age and developmental level even related to that of supernatural beings.
Bad or evil ghosts demons and polterghiest often loses their temper. These spooky spooks often cause arguements with adults in a haunted location.
These spirited spirits often actively defies or refuses to comply with requests to leave or rules we ask them to follow as a normal rather then abnormal haunting. These poor pitiful shades of a pale wretched specter often deliberately annoy people just to get attention. If they were visible and alive these would be the individuals that often blames others for his or her mistakes or misbehavior.
These wayward wraiths are often touchy or easily annoyed by other ghosts or people in it's hauntedt teritory. This sickminded shade is often angry and resentful. They seem to exhibit spiteful or vindictive beaviors against ghost hunters especiallly. The disturbance in behavior causes clinically significant impairment in social, academic, or occupational functioning. Might this be what a spooked out ghost on an over dose of ecto would or might do?
These behaviors do not occur exclusively during the course of a ghost hunt. But the Psychotic or Mood disorderthat a particular ghost might exhibit is purely happening at the moment. . Also it might just be a real case of Antisocial paranomal personality disorder.
If the ghost meets at least four of these criteria, and they are interfering with the ghost ’s ability to function, then he or she technically meets the definition of Oppositionally defiant.
