Hi recently via internet looking through various articles and stories of people suffered, I learnt that I am suffering from ADHD. I'm not completely sure about it but I have found that I have the attention span of less than 10 mins if I am interested and because of that I have flunked my schooling well. Due to efforts from my parents, I was able to pass my school tests who used to spoon-feed my studies. In India, I am unsure whether such disorders are given due attention as people are unaware of it. Please help. I am working in a consultancy company, which I find it quite boring. I have an interest in sound engineering which is again not acceptable as a career. Long story short, my life is miserable. Please help.I am having a quality which is determination and hard work,but this lack of concentration is hampering it a lot. I am preparing for an GATE examination with full determination, such that it is taking a toll on my relationships with friends and family as I am fed up with my failures
