That just shows you're somewhat intelligent, and can apply yourself. I've done that too. Yet, I've never been considered ADHD, and I've been to a psychiatrist.



See point #1, above.



So people who aren't considered ADHD/ADD/etc. are a "buzzkill"? Are we just social prudes in your eyes?



No, it's placed correctly here. It'd get more views in The White Padded Room, though.

Also, watch your language. I get you're "frustrated" or whatever, but there's no need.
Also my hero.

I -highly- doubt all 20% have a severe condition. I thought I had a medium condition, but I think it's mild now. And it IS a disease. Not only is it classified as a disease, but also there's a few psychiatrists who actually have heart and don't give that much about money. They still think ADHD is a disease. So, while I can understand your frustation, I don't think it's necessary to get upset about. I will admit, people who flaunt that they have ADHD are annoying and also probably are narcissists, but they're still there. And then there are the kids who you would never guess have ADHD because they take their medicine and are fine.

Being a kid does give you a lot of energy, but it doesn't mean every kid has ADHD. Kids without it can buckle down and focus if they need to. To me, I zone out whether I'm listening to my raid leader explain a fight on WoW (shush! I play that game) or if I'm listening to my Spanish teacher explain something.


Success isn't the opposite of failure;
success is the path that everyone must take
- though it might be filled with hardships -
in order to achieve whatever it is they wish to accomplish.

My little brother has it. It _IS_ a disease. I watched him struggle to keep his grades up, crying everynight while doing his homework *for hours* because he didnt focus enough in class.. Get all sad and lonely when he had to move classes and lose his friends. He got on medication and his grades went up and the struggling stopped.

You really need an adjustment of your view on life. i really dont know what your fucking deal is, but you need to calm down. You need help @CantLiveWithoutYou. Seriously.

teehee.

Disease.
Definition: a disordered or incorrectly functioning organ, part, structure, or system of the body resulting from the effect of genetic or developmental errors, infection, poisons, nutritional deficiency or imbalance, toxicity, or unfavorable environmental factors.

*cough*


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.

I know a girl who has both ADD and ADHD. She's pretty out there, and obviously is not normal. I do agree that it is over-diagnosed and a cultural disorder. I also hate using the term disease for psychological disorders. It implies that people can't help themselves, when in fact we're our best chance for overcoming a disorder.
