RE: ADHD/ADD
Didn't the guy that invented ADHD meds admit that it was all bullshit before he died? I think the terms "ADHD" and "bad ass kids with no home training" are often used interchangeably and ADHD (if real) is overdiagnosed...but I won't go as far as to say it's a hoax until I research it some more.

I'm telling you for a fact that it's real.
I started a thread where you can ask ADHD people questions.

I don't really have any questions...and I understand the symptoms of ADHD...but I also understand that these "symptoms" could easily be explained by something else....but again, I'm not qualified to talk on this subject...it's not something I've studied in depth or experienced first hand. So I'm sorry if my post was offensive towards you, I was just thinking out loud. But you better believe I'm gonna go get my reading on to understand this a little better....but until then, I won't speak from ignorance~I'll leave that to the theists Tongue

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Keyword: Hyper.
It's not a legitimate excuse, although people misconstrue it as "being a dick" when you're just hyper. Also, you tend to swear a lot.

No one can tell. Except my friends who see me when I am relaxed.
In daily life I am now calm and inert. The meds neutralized me.

It's real. I am ADHD (inattentive). Medication makes a huge difference in my ability to function.

...Would you ask if schizophrenia was real or epilepsy? Or blame the symptoms on bad parenting?

I recognize that the symptom aren't visible in the same way as schizophrenia or epilepsy. The neurological disorder can still be very debilitating. Thankfully, medication can help.
