The general consensus amongst experts is that you are born with ADHD. Some prenatal and postnatal things may also play a role.

id say you are at least born with a vulnerability to ADHD

I believe there is a genetic component and environmental factors.

I believe that you are born with AD(H)D. I do not believe you can acquire it!

See most people were born pretty much the same, then god decided to make special people and he wanted them to stand out among the others so he could watch them. Sort of like his entertainment. So he made us AD(H)D people!
So when people would tell me as a kid that I was special, little did they know they were right!

So go out there today and give god a good chuckle or two! I know I must be cracking him up on a daily basis! We are his reality TV!!!

From everything I've read, you're born with it.

What happens after birth can either minimize or maximize how it impairs you.
