what you guys are describing IS in fact the same thing as ADD. you cant focus, your have a deficit in your ability to pay attention thus Attention Deficit Disorder. i dont know why people shy away from this diagnosis. im actually glad i was diagnosed as attention deficit because at least now i know what is going on. unfortunately, i have yet to find an effective treatment. meds dont do squat. i had some results from taking adderall but that was very short lived. unfortunately the only way to cope with this is to COPE with it. ADD people have to live their lives much differently then everyone else. thats just the way it is. we have to keep things as simple and consise as possible. cause chaos only confuses us more.
