Hmm…interesting question. It sounds like you tend to drift when engaged in something pretty routine, mundane, or repetitive. But when you’re engaged in something, this is less likely to happen?
Diagnosing ADHD in a formal way is a pretty involved process. It includes documenting a history of inattention going back into childhood, so if this is a more recent occurrence, it’s probably not something that is clinically diagnosable as ADHD. You certainly could consult with a psychiatrist or a psychologist who specializes in ADHD (this is a specialized area that some psychologists will specialize in – a general psychologist usually doesn’t have the training to be able to diagnose/treat as effectively).
I’m curious about your sleep. Maybe it’s not related, but how well are you sleeping?
And how long have you noticed this happening?
Perhaps you can email me directly; none of this information is personally identifiable, but it’s probably better to keep further details private rather than public, I suspect.
