I was diagnosed with ADD as a child, but my parents refused to medicate me. I appreciate them so much for that. Diet and exercise really do make a difference with this condition. I've experienced most of the symptoms related to inattentiveness listed in this thread, and they all improve at least a bit when I'm really careful about my diet and diligent with exercise. That being said, I never cease to struggle with running behind at work. It really bothers me sometimes because I've always been really tough on myself about concentrating and staying focused on tasks. Others around me will slack off and wonder around the building gossiping with other co-workers and hiding from the supervisors, while I stay in my spot absorbed in my very tedious work all day and still get told that my work is good, but I'm not producing enough fast enough. It's infuriating and disheartening at the same time. It's silly, but every time I hear how slow I am it takes me back to all of those parent/teacher conferences I had to go through in elementary school. The teachers would always say how intelligent and well behaved I was before going on for the better part of an hour about how much better I'd be doing if they could only get me to stop daydreaming. I'd always cry when they'd say that because I had tried so hard to pay attention everyday, and couldn't remember daydreaming even once. I've been slowly coming to grips with the fact that my messed up attention span coupled with my near compulsive/perfectionist tendencies will always slow me down a bit.

It should be, though seems like people just enjoy merging personalities and mental conditions. And then there are idiots who like to blame their problems on such things (I have heard far too many people swearing they are clinically depressed or have OCD) just because it's easier or makes them seem interesting. I think we just all like to categorize things. I think just when they step over the line and harm themselves or others is when they truly need help.

Isn't this a thread someone has opened up and revived to discuss their condition and coping measures with others who share that condition, not debate the veracity of the majority of psychiatric/medical diagnoses. This thread isn't even about sob stories, or people looking for an excuse for their problems. It's simply about folks sharing their experiences and what works or doesn't work for them with other individuals who face the same very real, very specific challenge.

I've had it all my life:


Me too , the only thing i hate about it, is when my friends are talking to me , if they take too long to say what they want to say , I will find myself not listening ,
And i do not really think of it as a disorder ... It's apart of my personality
