Re: Is this ADD or laziness? Just cant distingush!

> As far as I can remember, this thing started to cause serious consequences for me around 18. Until then my academic performance was good. Suddenly I remember to be having great resistance to study and started failing in exams, developed OCD and eventually dropped out of college

This is not uncommon for people with ADHD. For many people, the symptoms may not be as noticeable at early age. A lot of ADHD people who do well in the early stages of school despite bad study habits are highly intelligent. However, the more challenging life and school becomes, less reliable natural intelligence is and the more noticeable ADHD symptoms become. Not necessarily because those ADHD symptoms are worsening, but because your natural intelligence is no longer sufficient to make up for things like procrastination and lack of studying.
