honey18,
You’ve received a LOT of great replies and advice on this forum. As a coach for those with ADHD (for over 20 years), I know it can be overwhelming to prioritize all the advice, especially on your own. That is part of the frustrating challenge of ADHD.
I would suggest:
1. Starting with getting a diagnosis (since things like sleep disorders can mimic ADD)
2. Then decide w/practitioner how to treat the biology of your ADD (meds/alternative/?) Are there co-occurring conditions?
3. Consider getting help creating customized strategies and ongoing support for your challenges to implement them from a professional ADD Coach, who can also support your STRENGTHS! This can be by phone.

You can do this!!
