I have ADD and want to know how you guys get/got your homework done. When I sit down to start my mind instantly goes blank. This especially happens with my algebra homework.

I could not have gotten through school without lots of Ritalin... I have some pretty wild ADHD myself and I've always had a hard time focusing on anything! I wouldn't be sitting here right now without Ritalin... I'd probably be running up stairs somewhere or throwing something at the wall. =P

Haha! I take Concerta... and a lot of it. Sometimes it just won't do the job. Concerta seems to work fine for me, except for with homework. I guess sometimes I'm just in the zone, and sometimes I just can't even wrap my mind around the idea of getting something done.

I usually procrastinate for a few hours when I get home from school, and then do it at like 8ish pm.

I turn off all the electronic things around me and sit on a quiet place and do it. If the homework is too long or if I have to write a text and have inspiration, I go eat something and then see if I can do it.

I didn't actually do my homework during most of my school career. The only reason I passed in earlier was because I did so well on tests that it brought my grade up to a C average. I eventually had to go to an alternative high school that didn't assign any homework so I could get my 2.5 GPA up to 3.5 when I graduated.

Most of my homework is done on a computer, which is why I probably look like I spend every waking moment here. No, instead I just keep 2 windows open: AG and my homework. I spend 5 minutes here and then 5 minutes on homework.

I feel your pain, you should have you parents watch over you. Becasue whenever they do, I am forced to move my pencil on my paper.

If that doesn't work, you should get your own study room like the ones parents sometimes use as an office room. It's the best place where you have your personal homework time and you have less distraction there.

And also try to set a goal, say, if you can finish the first two thirds of your homework before say 7:00pm, you can reward yourself with a 10 minute break or some snacks. You can't just constantly work or you will bore youself to procrastination.

It's true. Focusing on homework is really difficult. For me, though, the homework is not difficult to do if I actually sit down without any distractions and start - I can usually push through to finish it.

The key is to not have anything distracting you - like an open computer or television nearby. If you must, having some music on may be helpful (if it's not the heavy metal/rock type...)

Doing your homework in a library may help.
