comment Programming with ADD/ADHD
The ADHD --aka ADD-- brain (specifically the prefrontal cortex portion) craves stimulation, be it through stimulant medication or through a very stimulating piece of code that you're programming -- heck even the endorphins generated by exercise can do the trick! If you find something interesting enough to concentrate on, you can hyperfocus on it for hours and hours. However, if you are forced to complete a task that is uninteresting, it can be very difficult to focus without the aid of additional stimulation.
