I was diagnosed near the beginning of this year with ADHD. I always knew I couldn't be still for very long. I do enjoy quiet, relaxing moments, though. I use to be able to perform several tasks at once without effort. Now, it seems a chore.
I use to be able to enjoy listening to audiobooks while doing housework, etc.
It seems like I get easily distracted now. I am open to any suggestions you may have.

Kathy Estime (kathyestimewrites) | 3 comments Hey I am beginning to think that I have ADHD as well. The inattentive kind, not the hyper one. I get distracted easily and I am now reaching a phase where I can't be bothered to read. Which is weird because once I do read I am fine, especially if it's good.
Anyways, for suggestions I would say perhaps move around while you're reading.
Also, this might take forever, take specific chunks of time where you have to focus on the audio material 25-35 minutes then go back to doing what you normally do. The trick is to not overwhelm your mind, you can build up your attention this way.

Victor Muthoka (hundredpercent) There are some books on ADHD that I'd been recommended to, that I want to pass onto you, once I get the list.
