my son has ADHD and gets very frustrated when he has to write essays, reports, etc.

i found that one thing that helped him a lot was to put individual facts or topics on 3x5 index cards as he thought of them

that way you don't have to work your way through it in a straight line

once your ideas are on the cards, you can shuffle them around until you have them in the order you want to use and throw away the ones you don't want to use

For the essay you can do what I do and just find paragraphs from books/articles/sites on the subject and change them around into your own words.

This here post made me believe that I have had some sort of ADHD when I was a kid... and sometimes I get it now as well, because I can't focus more than 10 minutes reading something ... a book or anything

and jumping right next to do something else......

well I am Autistic and the way I cope when I need to focus on work etc is music I can't explain why it works but different types of music has different effects and for work I usually use something with a bass in it.
