homework sentiments consistent with ADD?

Its so discourgaging because every little assignment takes me forever because I can't just stay focused on what Im writing. I get distracted by people around me, my thinking goes off on tangents, or I simply get bored after a few minutes and start thinking about what I would rather be doing or I get sleepy as soon as I start reading something. Plus, half the time even when I know the information I can't seem to get it written down before i think about something else so I loose track of what I was going to write and have to figure it out all over again. I think that is why I so seldom do my homework- because is just seems like such a useless alotment of time considering I get most of the information in class. Why can't we just have class discussions to prove how much we know instead of having to write essays?

Does that sound like ADD to you? Any ideas about how get homework done more efficiently?
