    I pay attention to the people and things happening around me, but I have trouble concentrating on my own independant thinking. (For example: In the library. I can't focus on my book im reading, instead im looking around me nervously.)

    Seriously, does this just mean i'm stupid? Or is there help for people like me?

    it's just either too many things going on in your head. or a lack of focus/concentration. i do the same thing. even alone in a room i used to have trouble reading. just try to relax yourself, you'll be much more efficient that way.

    I don't think you're stupid.

    You're obviously self-aware, you've been able to describe your situation clearly (even if you don't yet have the answers) and you're looking for help and therefore not in denial. Those things demonstrate intelligence.

    So, next, how old are you? It makes a big difference if you're 14 vs if you're 34.
