This is not another post about oo, do I have ADD. I know I have ADD, I never really believed it has held me back in anything and I care about school but I dont care if it takes me 3 times as long to do something. My work is still very high (Nothing but A's besides one class) if it takes me forever. But things are not the same as they were when I was 12. I can't just be a kid and things need to get done. My grades are great but I am on my 5th year of high school and I have to finish this year and I have tasks ahead of me that will require me to come home and spend 6 hours on homework. Also, Teachers and my doctor which is great is always telling me medication will help and I dont doubt it will. I have been tested on and off medication and on meds, I can sit down and read entire books non stop. This was when I was young but they had some special test and they showed me the results. All I remember was when I was in the 7th grade my 6th grade reading level increased to a college reading level. Now all that is great but what really made me think about meds is my friends and my social life. I dont have any problems meeting people and I have a ton of friends but I think what drives away girls in away is my constant tapping of the foot and changing body postion, also I look around and look at my watch like every 5 min. Now my question is this. I feel my ADD has became worse over the past few years. I use to be able to control how often I move around. I just cant stop tapping my damn foot. I think to my self I am tapping my foot because I want to, not because I cant stop. I was tapping my foot a min ago and stop. I cant descripe to you what it feels like to stay still. Its like there is this wierd feeling and I want to move. I dont see how someone cant not move a muscle for 10 minutes. I just dont understand. One of my quests is can ADD become worse as you get older? I am an adult now and I thought it would get better as I get older not worse. It must be getting worse for my doctor, teachers, friends and my mom to suggest I take some medication for it. People have told me my constant moving bothers them and that hurts me.
