in the uk, they have now stopped diagnosing ADD and supposedly anybody with ADD is now hyperactive as well, meaning I have to have more frequent controlled medication reviews and they are trying to find a different stimulant that would best fit my needs as 'ADHD' I'm on my 3rd drug in the past 6 months! Because that's really helping my education! ;(

want to talk? Pm me
rep appreciated

P.S. Sorry about any typos - chances are i'm on iTouch. My finger presses 5 buttons at once!

ADD and ADHD aren't technical diseases. Loss of concentration and obedience can't be classified as a disease, because it's mostly will. Even though we don't notice it, we can control how we act. And to people who have it, it feels like we can't do anything, so we believe it.[/Ella Enchanted reference]

Oh, and for the love of god, I'M STRAIGHT and I DON'T trade pics.
And another thing. I hate PMs saying, "hey, what's up?" Thy're pointless.[/rant]

Lol, looking at reputation in the CP and seeing how immature bratty kids deal with 'mean people'. I laugh every time.

I have ADHD and have to wear a patch every day. If I don't I'm so hyper I can't concentrate. I wish I didn't have to deal with it on a daily basis. As far as I'm concerned, it's real.
