I always wondered why I couldn't focus on boring things, why I couldnt sit still and always neeed someone to talk to or excite me. Finally, I was told I had ADHD. It explains a lot but I'm still confused. My ADHD doesn't affect me that much when I'm doing something I like, but when I'm bored or doing something I don't like in school, I just need to do something else. I can't focus.
