Forgetting things

Sometimes I stare at a word and re-read it at least more than five times and still cannot properly comprehend its meaning, and sometimes I pronounce the words wrong in my mind, as in cutting down difficult words, I haven't had this problem before until before a year when it started...before that I did well in language..also when I'm speaking, I sometimes completely jumble up the sentences, or am even unable to form one completely, and even blank out about what I was going to say and/or how to say it, mid-sentence..while holding a conversation with someone....

That is exactly what I experience most times, however i've had this problem since I can remember. Its really frustrating. I was diagnosed with ADHD more than a year ago. Its extremely difficult as an adult. I didnt have to take any medication and did fairly well in school.
