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!
