Fissile: ADHD? Oh yeah, my parents called it "ants in the pants".


I had aunts in the pants as a kid. She isn't allowed within 500 feet of me or my brothers anymore.

I'm not sure I agree because I'm pretty sure I might have had ADHD since I was six when

Not surprised.

For every parent that thinks their little snowflake is inflicted by a terrible disorder, let me say this.  Does your teenager have difficulty concentrating?  Does he have the attention span of a squirrel?  Does he misbehave and rebel against authority?  Does he no longer consider you to be top of the food chain in the family?  Does he do poorly in school and get into trouble with alcohol, cigarettes, pot, and girls?  Do you know what that's called?

Adolescence.

Either that or your kid's an asshole.

Take it with a grain of salt.  The site also features headlines like this:

Crackers Are a Family Food: Richard Sauce: probs just a lot of misdiagnosed bipolar

I wonder this, too.  I used to have so much energy that I'd actually be up for several days at a time and would begin to hallucinate.  Couldn't concentrate on anything to save my life.  Sleep was a foreign concept.  It's what I imagine meth to be like.  I refused to try any ADHD drugs because they're stimulants, and the LAST thing I needed was more energy.  I was hospitalized when the psychosis got so bad that I thought I would kill either myself or someone else.

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and put on lithium and Seroquel.  I feel like a new farking person.  I'm a crunchy Earth hippie who would rather not take any medication, but I've accepted that I need these medications (as well as one for my ulcerative colitis) to live.  Sometimes things in your body don't work correctly, and natural therapies don't do the job.


*Checks profile* I don't think that medication is working

Abox: You know a website is legit when it has a heading for Truthtm that is separate from its Health, News, Science, and Technology sections.


You're telling me sites like Infowars and NaturalNews aren't reliable?

....next you'll be telling me that Fox News writes articles with a distinct bias.....and that's absolutely crazy, right?

Sid_6.7: Oh, look, this thread again.

ADD/ADHD exists.

And your jokes are unfunny, repetitious, unoriginal, and in poor taste.


If my experience with my stepson is any indicator you will get over it. In like five minutes. Completely over it and on to a completely different emotion.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: sugarhi: Try growing up with my sister and you'd change your mind in a heartbeat - she was diagnosed at age 3 and it was quite apparent she met criteria throughout her childhood and adolescence. My parents were great (well educated and authoritative) so I seriously doubt it was due to bad parenting - plus I was symptom free!

Having spent my entire childhood living with my sister and observing the difficulties she had in spite of seeing specialists and being prescribed medication, I find it hard to believe it doesn't exist. I agree it's overdosenosed and frequently misdiagnosed, but that doesn't negate it's existence.

Well the key difference is you're not a woman

i kid i kid


Then what are these boobs doing here on my chest?!!?!

You could tell people that getting eight hours sleep a night is a treatable disorder and people will swear by it.  It's true. I sleep that much. It must be real. Give me drugs.
