make a list and check it twice...seriously. I know lots of people with various issues( dyslexia, fetal alchohol syndrom, severe anxiety, anger control issues, ADD) that ride, and riding helps them conquer some of their issues. You can't improve if you have no reason to.
I'm so leary of the lables doctors slap on people now. Every one has something legitimately wrong with them, and many use their diagnoses as an excuse(not saying that is the case with you OP, just a general statement). In a weird way I'm glad I wasnt diagnosed with dyslexia until high school. I was just a kid that had a hard time with a few things, and had to put in extra work to keep up.
OP, I would write that list, and work hard to focus as much as you can. I have a sibling with ADD and she gets significantly worse if she eats the wrong things(highly processed foods, especially starches, sugars and food coloring), so maybe that can help.
