In high school it was hard for me to pay attention, but I could always get through school with decent grades no problem. I now go to a community college, and in my classes it's so hard to pay attention to my teachers and learn. As well as when I'm talking to my friends. I can be telling them a story or talking about something then all of a sudden I will lose my train of thought or see something somewhere else and just stop talking. I don't know how I can continue school with behavior like this how do I fix it?

You need to see your doctor. The medications commonly prescribed for this disorder, including methylphenidate (Ritalin, Concerta, Focalin, Vyvanse), amphetamine (Adderall), and Strattera (Atomoxetine) are all highly effective in managing ADHD. I myself have been on Ritalin for years, and it helps immeasurably with my ADHD. If you don't want to go on medications, there are other things you can try, such as physical exercise and meditation. Meditation is actually quite helpful, since it trains the mind to focus, but it requires quite a bit of practice to see the benefits in your day to day life.
