Default ADHD in Gurps?

So I was wandering through 4e advantages and disadvantages working on building a Gurps version of myself, and I think I found an interesting advantage/disadvantage combination.

I was thinking about how ADHD is sometimes described as long periods of inattention punctuated by moments of hyperfocus and this sprung forth;

ADHD = Single-Minded + Short Attention Span CP = -5

I looked at the rules for each and the only contradiction seems to be a -5 to notice interruptions while obsessed, versus the Self-Control Roll every time a distraction occurs.

So while it feels like a good description of the confusion someone with ADD feels when they excel in some areas and drag far behind in others, I wonder if it's too complicated to actually work mechanics-wise?
