Your inattention and restlessness may not just be your quirky personality.
You could have ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), a behavioral disorder that's mostly associated with unruly children. In fact, about 65% of children with ADHD carry the disorder into adulthood, making it an adult problem too.
