Unhappy Headaches trying to focus

Hey all!

I'm relatively new to all this, but I'm pretty sure I struggle with ADHD. Luckily I get accomidations at my school already because of my dyslexia, but it's still so hard? I can't focus, I get bored doing anything, even this email, and then all I want to do is fixate. Even activities that I enjoy I dread because they seem like that take so much attention. I haven't been able to play the piano properly in ages, I haven't really done art or animation, I'm behind on all my homework, and just like everything is too much. The icing on the cake is that I get headaches from trying to focus so hard, which makes me want to focus less, but then even when I zone out my head still hurts and I feel guilty. Like help plz, is anyone else expriringinng this too???

Re: Headaches trying to focus

Yep, I get focus headaches, or my head hurts when I try too hard to concentrate.

Have you tried any meds as treatment? They can help with this.

Re: Headaches trying to focus

I also experience headaches if I am hyper-focused.
