Default Adhd, Add

When and where did this come from? Do you all believe this exists? What are your opinions?

There are many theories you can find on the net. One answer is that there are now better diagnoses, whereas in the past you would have been labeled a problem child and spanked or something. Another answer is that the mercury content is some vaccines caused these neural abnormalities. Another answer is that with the availability of drugs like ritalin, it made sense to identify and correct the problem (because now there's something you could actually do about it.) As you can imagine, it is a very controversial topic.

There are good arguments and some kinda sorta good evidence for proof of it.. but honestly I think it comes down to a good ass woopin.

I work with two grown men that claim to have it..funny thing is when I'm trying to convey something to them and they start with the wandering eyes shit.......... I yell and rap them on the head........wow....... no more fucking ADD!
funny how that slap on the fucking head cures them huh?

I think people like to get diagnosed for the ritalin (a type of speed) prescription.

No, you're wrong.

My nephew has ADD (in addition to something known as Ausbergers) and if he doesnt take his meds, he's out of control.

I do think this is kind of overdiagnosed. They tried to sell me on this shit when I was in high school and although I do tend to have a short attention span at times, I can usually get it together when I have to.

My brother is sold on the idea that he has this disorder and uses it as a excuse for being a moron and a flake.

I did say there were good arguments for it... but I just have trouble buying it is all.

as for your attention span? you probably just don't give a shit about whatever it is going on at the moment.

I of course tend to listen intently to things I find interesting and my mind tends to wander when I'm bored.

I know. I do the same thing. I can be looking you straight in the eyes and thinking about the woman I saw at the store this woman with the amazing ass and not hear word you said.

I have a friends who's little sister has ADD, but her mom is against putting her on medication because of her age, she's 8 years old. They have learned to deal with her add, but it's hard. The girl practically bounces off the wall when I go over. I don't think I could handle her like that all day. It's too much.

Try to talk to him to see why he acts that way, easier said than done obviously but medication should be a very last resort.

I'vd read that amphetamine based concentration pills are rampant in universities. So many kids and adults are on Adderall; it's staggering to think how many people we probably interact with on a daily basis, who are essentially on speed.
