im easily distracted. right now i should be writting an essay. and for a while it was going fine. i wrote part of it up up, proofread it, all while talking on aim. and then all of a suddenly it was like i couldnt do anymore. i played some games, got something to eat, took a break. and now im back with the samefeeling of i just can't bring myslef to do it.so this got me thinking. ive always been like this. sometimes i can write a brilliant five page paper in two hours. other times i cant even get myslef to do some simple homework. i can study my ass off for a test one day and the next i cant bring myself to open a book. somedays i can pay attention in class. other days ive slept through every damn class out of pure boredom or not being able to concentrate. intrest has a play sometimes i noticedi know some a.d.d type sympton runs in my family (two of my cousins had it). ive asked my dad before and all i got was "ur full of shit. stop being lazy" (real supportive. but hes a doctor so theres no arguing)so back on topic. could this be some mild form of add?now its time to try to get back to this essay.
It is human to have bad days, but just not having motivation every now and then isn't a.d.d. Other than that symptom there are other core a.d.d. traits you would have on top of this. You can google for tests online similiar to the ones a Dr. would give you to see where you stand. I highly suggest taking it with another person who knows you well, so your answers are not bias. When I took them by myself I had a tendency to give my self the benefit of the doubt and it affected my score, but when I took it with my girlfriend at the time or a family member, the difference in the scores was huge.
