Anyone out there write and have ADD or ADHD? I've never been actually diagnosed but my doctor recently prescribed me an amphetamine for something unrelated (I have sleep apnea and most days I still remain tired throughout the day) and I gotta say it makes a huge difference in me and my work ethic. A normal day without the amphetamine I will look at my writing, maybe add some to it, then go surfing the web (I check Facebook, Yahoo, MSNBC, a couple writing forums), then go back to my writing and things just seem to go at a snails pace. I also found with something I was working on this summer I just stopped halfway and went to another project. On the amphetamine I feel motivated, awake, focused. As a matter of fact, I visited the site this morning, the amphetamine kicked in, and next thing I know it's 12:30 and I realized I need to make lunch and then decided to pay this site another visit while it's cooking. I went almost a solid 5 hours without being distracted from what I was doing and if it weren't for the rumbling in my stomach I probably would have gone on longer. Here is the Wikipedia entry: Attention deficit disorder (ADD) is one of the three subtypes of Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The term was formally changed in 1994 in the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition (DSM-IV) to "ADHD predominantly inattentive" (ADHD-PI or ADHD-I), though the term attention deficit disorder is still widely used. ADD is similar to the other subtypes of ADHD in that it is characterized primarily by inattention, easy distractibility, disorganization, procrastination, and forgetfulness; where it differs is in lethargy - fatigue, and having fewer or no symptoms of hyperactivity or impulsiveness typical of the other ADHD subtypes. When I look at that and see, "Inattention, Easy Distractibility, Disorganization, Procrastination, and Forgetfulness and Lethargy and Fatigue" that seems to fit my description to a T. If you have ADD/ADHD and write, do you use anything other than medication to help you focus?
