katrina1980 Posted August 16, 2019 Share Posted August 16, 2019 Hi guys, I'm am so frustrated with myself! I am now convinced that as an adult, I have developed ADHD or just ADD. I find it difficult focusing and concentrating on one subject at a time, for anthing longer than a few paragraphs at a time; it's gotten to the point where unless something captures my attention very early on, I become bored with it and move on, stop reading. Books, articles, even the longer posts on relationship advice forums! Lol I simply do not have the patience to make it through, what the hell is wrong with me? The problem now is that I am studying for the LSAT and my focus on doing well is what is propelling me forward, and I hope that once in law school it will be the same as the curriculum involves tons and tons of reading!! Several top attorneys I know, including those who graduated from Harvard and Stanford struggle with ADD and take meds for it, is this what I have to look forward to? Ugh. I used to love to read, novels, bios, I could spend all day reading, but now as I said, unless something captures my attention from the get go, I will stop reading -- mind races with other thoughts, I lose focus, even happens when I watch movies and the tele. What's wrong with me? I have not mentioned to my doctor yet as I believe I have been in denial about it. But it's been happening for too long now and I cannot deny it any longer. Have any others experience this? Lack of focus and concentration? I still have a great memory though, sharp as a tack which is definitely a positive and will serve me well in law school. I just wish I had the ability to remain more focused though. Thanks in advance for any insight and advice. Link to comment
