There are a few symptoms nessisary (sorry about the spelling)for a positive diagnosis of ADD
/ADHD these are spontineity (random purchases, spur of
the moment choices etc.)inability to focus and, lack of organizational skills (also unusually high amounts of energy in ADHD.)
I have ADD i was diagnosed at the age of 6 and have found many stragies to cope, instead of fighting it, flit from task to task, everything will stil get done quikly. getting alot of exercise helps, espesially aerobic.
