User :   I'm not sure if it's anxiety or add but I know I was diagnosed with add as a child and my dad never let me get on medicine because he heard bad things about it back then. In high school I noticed something but it wasn't a huge deal I could still do very well in classes and get good grades. Now that I'm going to SLU doing bio pre-med the classes are much harder and require much more time to study or do an assignment to receive a good grade. I find it hard for me to concentrate while studying and once things get complex or I don't understand something easily or if it's a big assignment it feels like something is bouncing around in my head or like static and I can't focus at all.
