Hi...I hope I can help

The first things that comes to mind is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Here is a questionnaire to complete to see if it fits. There are other possibilities such as superior intelligence. Individuals with high IQ's can appear to have ADHD as well.

If the questionnaire helps you to decide you may have ADHD and if you have had this problem since childhood (the diagnosis requires this), then, take results to your primary MD or a psychiatrist for a trial of medication. You'll be glad you did.

If this helped, press ACCEPT or if you have a follow up question, feel free to ask.
