I have had ADD my whole life and my ADD really efftects my memory wich I hate cause I will forget things real EASILY and I get easily distracted especially in school for example I will start drawing randomly and then loose focus in class we are NOT alone people who have ADD just have a extra challenge in life :D

The stuff you say you're doing that is called Fidgeting. Fidgeting is hard to explain but I do know that people have it like HAVE to do something every second so you may have a small case ADHD :)

It's just really difficult to focus for me and act like a little kid, and I don't remember things as easily than when I take my meds for it. It just helps me focus better and since I'm always tired, it keeps me awake and alert too.

I had a light case of ADD a couple years back.
I just couldn't focus on anything, and my attention span was really short, especially if it didn't interest me.

I used to have ADD and it affected my eating. Since I got taken off the tablets and stopped being diagnosed as one I eat like a horse.
