ADD is not a disease. Your body does not produce antibodies or tumors because of it.

ADD is simply a method of wiring your brain. As an analogy, it is more like an electronic circuit that uses Alternating Current, instead of Direct Current. You still have all the components that everyone else has. You can learn the same stuff, but you may have to use slightly different methods, to acquire the information.

You can take a couple of online tests at: You can read more about it at:

Your family physican may try treatments to clear depression, and/or something to extend the amount of time that you can focus on boring subjects.

You can check for books about ADHD. They tend toward methods for organization, and coping with the thought methods, and ways of learning.

There are several symptoms for ADD. Few people exhibit all of them. Some of them change, over time. Hyperactivity in a child may transform to excessive talkativeness, in an adult.

ADDone question, have you ever been doing something and not been able to account for 15 minutes of time? a serious daydream no matter how hard you try. if you take a 15 minute trip into your own mind then you may have it. if you think it is serious, consult your doctor

More input from FAQ Farmers:

  • History of ADD symptoms in childhood, such as distractibility, short attention span, impulsivity or restlessness. I don't work with problems very well at all. I don't talk out my problems when I have them. I have mood swings alot. I don't like being around people. I never liked getting a job.
