Im not sure if this would indicate that i have ADD
/ADHD, but ive basically been unable to focus on my homework at all at home, But i can at the college library... after a few hrs of trying to focus at the library that is. That is part of the reason why i cant focus on any of the curriculum during this summer semester i guess, since im stuck at home for the most part. Ive had this focusing issue in school for as long as i can remember. I was always zoning out and day dreaming in grade school, and almost always forgot my homework. i got better at remembering my homework, but by high school, i still forgot at least a couple of assignments every week, and was still day dreaming atleast 2 days a week. The only time i could really focus was during classes like art, and gym, and woodshop. Recently, i downloaded nba2k13 on my xbox. HUGE MISTAKE! Now, everytime i start to strain my brain a little with my math homework, i drop the math and i play 2k. some times i don't even make it to the laptop and i just play 2k, or make food, or just about anything to avoid the homework. I don't have this problem at work as a Cashier, which lead me to believe that i might be a little delusional in thinking that i have add, and also, nobody really even thought about this possibility until i thought of it the second week of summer courses. The only thing about the Clerk job is that i find it fun. i remember many times where i forgot to heed something that my parents told me, like the 6th week of the spring semester (i remember this because i wasn't able to type at home since my laptop was dead), my dad told me the previous day NOT to stay late at the campus like i had been doing earlier. He had the incorrect suspicion that i wasn't doing homework and playing ball, but was instead only playing at the campus. I did
what i normally did the next week, went thru class, talked with friends, and since i took care of the homework for that day already, i decided to stay and play basketball. when i got home, dad was... mad, and kept asking me if i was trying to diss him or something, like he always does. fact of the matter, like so many other times, was that i just forgot.
Anywhooo, let me get to the point since im basically rambling here; It seems like i can't focus at all, and i am able to forget many items and info on a regular basis. The only place i can focus on anything school work related is in the school library. I can't do homework on this laptop in my room because i always end up somewhere random on the internet, no matter how hard i try, or i end up ditching the work to play games or listen to music. I will, more often than not, think about something, try to follow that thing up ( like looking something up on the www), and completly forget it the next moment. I don't know if im just weak willed, have a short term memory issue, both, or have add/adhd, but this whole thing basically gets me into a lot of trouble and i need to know where and how to start to fix it. I'd like to know if i even have the basis to say i may have add.
what do you think? aside from this question being too wordy.
