The doctor secretly switched Sid_6.7's ADD pills with anabolic sterioids, lets see if he can maintain a calm rational state.

Sid_6.7: So, in conclusion, f*ck you, subby. Go DIAF.

Sid_6.7: I an adult with ADD.


Not to insult or anything, but what do you think about the American Psychiatric Association no longer recognizing ADD as a legitimate disorder?

cherryl taggart: We had a kid tested one time for learning disabilities. Test results showed the kid was of average intelligence, with no significant difficulties noted. We were then told to get a full medical work up on the kid. Said kid had levels of hormones consistent with onset of puberty, which have a known history of increased moodiness, rebellion to authority, risk taking behavior, etc. However, when we elected to continue with non-pharmacological behavior management, the 'professionals' were shocked.

Kid was a pain in the neck, and that kid's puberty was hell on everyone in our house. But, I'm still disgusted at the amount of grief we caught from doctors and teachers about non-drugging the kid.

I'm sure there are kids that would benefit from some kind of chemical rebalance, but it can't possibly be as high as the stats indicate currently.


Yeah. Those dumb "professionals." They think they know what's good and bad for kids just because they spent years in school engaged in rigorous academic study of "science." But did any of them bother to ask random assholes what their half baked hunches are? Their vague "feelings" that the number of kids who could benefit from medication can't possibly be that high?

No, not one. So what the hell do they know. Don't medicate your kid just because multiple doctors and teachers say he needs it. You know best. Not some ivory tower eggheads and their "stats." So f*ck'em.

Sid_6.7: F*ck you, subby, and anyone who makes fun of this.

I an adult with ADD. I was diagnosed halfway through high school. I went on meds and went from a 2.66 GPA to a 4.0. If not for the diagnosis and the meds I would have barely graduated, would never have gone to college, and would, over all, have a vastly sh*ttier standard of living.

And I never asked for any breaks other than taking meds. No extra time on tests, none of that.

I still struggle every goddamn day, and still take meds, to deal with the f*cked up society you low-intelligence disinterested f*ckwits have built for yourselves because you are only capable of dealing with having everything placed before you in nice neat rows, but are unable to question or dream.

So, in conclusion, f*ck you, subby. Go DIAF.
