Patient : Hi I am a 20 year old male and I think I may have ADD or ADHD. I show some symptoms such as being unable to focus especially at school (I only go 2 days a week) and I always procrastinate. I can't remember deadlines especially for my classes (tests, papers, etc) I can't keep anything organized and usually I can only get things done if I drink a lot of caffeine or take a 5 hour energy (i take at least 4 a week)I also tend to catch my leg bouncing up and down very fast at times when I am sitting and I always blurt out random things when no one is around. I work full time and usually stay on task, but I have been known to act up and that got me fired from my last job. I also have been diagnosed with anxiety that is usually brought on by racing thoughts.. It's hard to describe because I wasn't really like this when I was a kid but my mother and my sister both suffer from ADD.. so possibly it is just coming out later? Or could it just be something else?
