For all the problems that comes with ADD I thought I might share some things I've learned help me cope or function more normally. Hopefully some things that have worked for me may work for others as well.
Music helps me focus while I am working, instrumental music of your preferred genre works best. Music also is great for relaxing when I'm taking a break or at the end of the night I simply zone out to some music for a while and it calms my mind.
The occasional game whether it be a phone app or video game also helps when relaxing. However if the games become too addictive then it's best to either severely limit play time or stay from them as I have learned.
For those with friends and family who don't understand why those of us with ADD function or do certain things; learning everyhting you can about your ADD or ADHD and then explaining yourself and how you think and process things does help wonders. I still have some issues in my family but after doing my research and showing them videos and articles explaining my ADD has helped them to understand me better than they did before. Science and proven facts don't lie so for those with stubborn people who don't want to believe it's a neurological disorder and think you're just being selfish or degrade you for not being 'normal' you may have a easier time concincing them.
Long post I know but I hope maybe I can help at least one person. We all need support and to remember we're not alone and there are people out there who understands exactly what we're going through.
