First of all, you need a plan. ADDers require a lot more structure than others, so you need a system of organizing tasks/time management that you think you can work with.

Second, medication. If you aren't diagnosed, see a psychiatrist and get diagnosed (make sure it's a psychiatrist, psychologists can't prescribe meds). If you are diagnosed, go see a doctor and talk about what meds are available. Medication will help you stick to the plan, and stay on task long enough to complete what you're working on.

Third, get a "Coach". This is a person who will keep you accountable. It can be a friend/co-worker/parent/spouse/whatever. Their job is to check in with you for a few minutes each day/two days/week and keep you on track. All they need to do is cover 4 topics, with the acronym H.O.P.E

H - Help, What do you need help with?
O - Obligations, What obligations do you have in the near future?
P - Plan, What is your plan to meet your obligations?
E - Encouragement, You're doing a good job!

I'd recommend some reading too.
Books that have really helped me are:
Driven to Distraction - Gives a thorough explanation of what ADD/ADHD is and isn't.
The Now Habit - Gives a really good plan to work through procrastination, but most importantly to deal with the guilt and anxiety that go along with it.
These are available in audiobook too. I find it easier to listen while driving/running/waiting in line/etc than to force myself to sit and read.

There are lots of resources to help, and your psychiatrist can answer a lot of your questions too.

Hope this helps :)

I found this book pretty helpful. However, it is not a replacement for actual treatment. Many pediatricians treat ADHD, but it's not their primary focus. Unfortunately, it's way too common that they simply prescribe medication and hope for the best. I'd suggest looking around your area for doctors who specialize in treating ADHD. Look around until you find one with whom you're comfortable and whose treatment is effective for you.

Normal path:

    1. Teacher says you are misbehaving

    1. "Expert" tells you, "you have ADHD"

    1. You take medication, probably adderrall or Ritalin

    1. You tell people, teachers, yourself, "I just have ADD, I'm special, it's not my fault, I need drugs." You still don't really understand the issue. There may be another diagnosis or complicating factors that have built up over times, your self esteem and self image may have suffered.


    1. Get this book:

    1. Try to find a good or at least competent therapist (25% are competent, only 10% are good). Even someone close who understands ADHD very well will work. Your goal is to understand ADHD really well.

    1. Find out who else has it (if you have ADHD, most of your friends/family members probably do too) and try to help them with it.


    1. Collect underpants

    1. Profit!!

This Honestly Hits home for me. I am sensitive to meds.

I recommend you read Driven to Distraction , Skip the first parts about diagnosis, and get to the living suggestions.

There are a few CBT guides that help with ADD, I recommend this one it worked for me. + if you can afford it a therapist trained for ADD would be a good resource.

I take fish oil every day... great for the skin and brain... does nothing for my ADHD though. Tell your mom to read this book

It's awesome. It's the actually textbook Psychiatry students use to learn about ADHD. I highly recommend this book for anyone with ADD. You read this, and you will most likely know more then your psychiatrist.

As the one with ADD in my relationship, I highly recommend you get a copy of Driven To Distraction. It has a chapter specifically dedicated to relationships, and it's for both the one "afflicted" and the one "inflicted" if you get my meaning. ;) I don't know if it's worth owning, so check it out from your library if you can. It has a lot of insight to the kinds of questions you're asking and it says things a lot better than I ever could.

Healing ADD by Daniel Amen has a lot of great tips for using natural products. I haven't used them personally though.

SPECT scans show remarkable differences in an ADD/ADHD brain versus non-ADD/ADHD brains.

Consistent, scheduled exercise helps a lot.

Check out a book called "Spark":

For many years, I thought that this was a pretty foolish way to treat anything. After reading the 4 Hour Body, I thought to myself, this guy has done all of this experimentation on himself, why not give it a try.

Basically I cut out carbs and casein. I also limited my refined sugar intake. The effect was pretty astounding. I showed a huge improvement in concentration.

The flip side is that it is harder than hell to keep up. I am sure that I would have been unhappy as hell if that diet was forces on me as a child. I still love pizza. That kind of tends to reduce the efficacy of the diet.
