I believe ADHD is a real diagnosis with a physical element to it (i.e. neurological, environmental, genetic and so forth).

I agree. It is probably over prescribed and unfortunatly doctors just pass out medications. They should find other things that would help the problem. Like productive activites.

ADD isn't JUST about lack of attention span.

I have ADHD (combined) & It's not a mental thing.
It's real & it can destroy lives in severe cases.
