I'm a fourteen year old girl, and ever since o can remember, I've n bed been good at concentrating. Even with small tasks, like getting dressed, I often get distracted and end up doing something completely different, without even finishing dressing. I find it impossible to concentrate on anything I find boring. No matter how hard I try, I just can't get my brain to focus on it. I usually just end up thinking more about focusing than actually focus ing and end up daydreaming. I've always had a problem with fidgeting. I can't sit down without jiggling my leg, or tapping my pencil. I move around in my seat so much that I get told off, at home and at school.
Whenever I start a new hobby, I can't seem to do it for more than a few months without it becoming a chore. Even if I chose to do it, and I previously loved it. With drawing, writing, playing the violin, and horseriding, it's always been the same story.
It's starting to have a negative effect on my grades too, and I and up interrupting studying or revision with pointless tasks. Even when I know that the exam is important, I get unbelievably bored.
It's also impacting my social life. I can't concentrate on a conversation and usually end up in my own world. People think that I'm rude, even though I want more than anything to focus on what they're saying, but I just can't.
Is this ADD? If it isn't, what could it be? And how do I cope with it? Thanks.
