Self-diagnosis is a dangerous road. You cannot reliably diagnose yourself.

That said, I think it could be worth your while to read some of the popular books on ADD like "Driven to Distraction" and "You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy?"

The coping strategies for ADD are pretty universal. I could not possibly imagine one doing harm to one's self by seeing if anything in those books is applicable to you.

Prescription medication can help, but at best is only part of the answer.
