This isn't really my place to say, but personally, I don't think that people should be coming on this post and asking random, unknown people if they have ADD/ADHD. This isn't something you should leave in the hands of a stranger, and most likely someone who doesn't even have ADD/ADHD. This can turn into a serious problem if you DO NOTHING ABOUT IT or GET THE WRONG INFORMATION. It can affect your life and your future if ignored or dismissed. If you want some good, credible information visit www.WebMD.com. I'm sure you can find some answers to your questions there. You should maybe go see a doctor and ask for a test. If you are still in school ask for help from a teacher or counselor who you know cares if you get do anything about it or not. I was diagnosed with ADD in the 1st grade by my best teacher so far. I have taken medications since and has helped me some. I couldn't even write a 4 sentence paragraph without throwing a fit before i went on medication. But just recently it has really hit me that I need to work with my medicine and change, or i could end up as highschool drop out. Please, anyone with ADD/ADHD, use this post to tell of your experiences and/or problems with ADD/ADHD and really help out some people who need help and ways to cope with it.
you are right, they shouldn't ask for a diagnosis... however i don't think theres anything wrong with asking if they share similar symptoms with certain disorders/medical problems for further evaluation by a qualified professional.
