I wonder if anyone can point me to resources regarding ADD in adults. Something with checklists maybe, to get an idea of whether it is something to look in to... to address the issue of whether it's a chemical problem, or just not wanting to focus properly. Thanks.

I'm ADD with LD in Math called Dyscalculia. My symptoms changes according to my diet. I am at my best when I don't eat sugar and grains, and focus on eating what is good for me. You may want to check Feingold's diet which speaks a lot of ADD. I'm on SCD and you can check <a href="http://www.pecanbread.com" target="_blank">www.pecanbread.com</a> to get an idea of what SCD is.

Thanks, greencat. I don't even know if it should even be a concern - or if I'm really just looking for a convenient excuse or a sign that I should be pursuing a different career <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> - but it's worth looking into I guess.

Oh, another thing is ADD and anti-candida diets. When you have an over growth of yeast, one of the symptom is "foggy brain" syndrome. When I say staying on the good diet means anti-candida diet. You may want to read "The Yeast Connection" by William G. Crook, M.D.
