Best to define the: specific issues with which you have difficulty, as opposed to relying on ADD as a catch all. Mental behaviors are primarily controlled by our unique combination of life experiences (especially those from under age 5) combined with our emotional understanding/interpretation of their meaning, rarely conscious (thus dominant & not challenged/corrected, even when incorrect), not conscious ideas!

Does this mean no solutions? Absolutely not; a clue to approaches which can have great success, even if rarely implemented. Study & work at remembering/recording dreams (especially ones long recurring, upsetting, confusing &/or rapidly fading on awakening) immediately on awakening (voice recognition phone app can help) seek help worthy of your trust to ferret out origins/meaning/insight/solutions.
