heres a couple of links to threads that u should look at first:

those are the best places to start really, also we kinda need a bit more to work on here, if u could kind of elabourate that would be great.

best thing to do as i'm sure that others will suggest is go get diagnosed by a GP or a psychologist, this community and the wealth of information stored in it although great still can't make up for an official diagnosis.

Also, welcome to the forums :D

ADHD is a lot more complicated than that. BUT , the central feature is an inability to control mental focusing.

You might look up the DSM IV criteria for diagnosing ADHD. It spells it out rather plainly.

Maybe someone will be kind enough to post the DSM IV criterial and perhaps some links to online tests.

Get the book "Delivered from Distraction by Hallowell and Ratey.
If you feel you wrote the book you have ADD. If you feel the book was written about you, than you still have ADD.
