I am 55 years old and have had this problem my whole life. I have a lot of energy, eat a good diet and sleep 7 to 8 hours a night. My problem is that whenever I have to concentrate on something, a difficult book or lecture for example, for more than ten minutes I drop off. I can go longer if I am really fresh in the morning, but other than that I tend fall in to a deep sleep. This has made it difficult to learn math, understand physics, or even learn government rules and regulations.
I have a college age son who has ADHD and I notice I share some symptoms with him. Any advice where I can find answers?
