    i have this problem, not sure if it is just me..
    seems like my attention span is very low, everytime i try to study, my mind drifts off suddenly, and when i try to focus, my mind drifts again...
    it really iritates me, same goes for school during lectures...
    i am consious about this... it is really hard for me to focus...

    anyone care to share tips...:sadwavey:
     
  2. I'm like that a bit also. Can't study for the world. And also, I might be talking to someone on the street. And just turn away, only realising then that they asked me something, but I've already left.

    possible A.D.D. symptoms. although, if you don't have these same issues concentrating on something you like doing, you may just be a bit more susceptible to boredom. :dunno:

    I could be in the middle of a masturbation session and my mind will completely flip channels.

    Some people think ADD and ADHD do not exist. These people don't have ADD.

    ---

    Try Strattera. It's a new drug that is the first FDA approved ADD\ADHD medication that is a none stimulant. It also works long-term like Paxil or Prozac. In fact -- it is exactly like those drugs in function, but it works on a different chemical.

    It has a low side effect profile and is much safer then SSRI's (Selective Seratonin Reputake Inhibitors, ei Paxil).

    If that doesn't work, you might end up on ritalin. I hope that's not the case.

    I've realized that I drift off in situations where I'm not interested. I know for a fact I dont have ADD, because when I want to focus I can do it very well. I consider myself to have an active imagination which goes hand in hand with my creativity. As a matter of fact, my Boss called me a "wonderer" a couple of months ago...seemed like it made sense. Dont let it get to you...that just may be the way you are. However, if it continues to bother you I would consult professional advice.

    Same here, Im ADHD, and I take ritalian, although I cant really tell a difference in the focus department; I still cant focus that well. But in the hyper department it makes a big difference, I am very hyper without ritalin.
