Exclamation I indeed do have this so-called ADHD

But what's wierd is, I'm calm and quiet! Well, loud sometimes. But I actually feel happier because it gives me an excuse of why I don't pay enough attention. I'm actually starting to think that ADHD is just something made up or exaggerated (sp?) to sell medication. But alas, my mom wants me to get on Ritalin. And what makes my mad is that the power of Ritalin is very strong; to disable and eventually shrink the brain. It differs little in its destructive effects from cocaine and the amphetamines, and is fast becoming the drug of choice among addicts in high schools and colleges. Kids in middle schools and high schools who are required to take Ritalin daily at school are now selling their pills to their friends who want to get a quick fix. I think it's really stupid my therapist suggested Ritalin. What pill should i use? I know ADHD is a hoax, but I need to do it to please my mom. Please answer!

I'm not so sure ADHD is a hoax, but then again alot of people have the I guess that it's kinda like a habit. I'm trying to defeat ime being unable to focus by just wanting and trying to listen in class. I have a goal, I want to be a cool smart kid

I don't think you should take anything...I used to take all this stuff but it made me carsick (and yes I've had Ritalin before). My mom took me off of it because she was scared of having all of this stuff in my system.

Set a goal to yourself. Not a really big goal that's like 20 years in advance, but maybe cool kid, smart kid (not geek) or trying to avoid pills 0_o

Just try and try. It's hard, really hard. But it'll pay off. My mom is on some meds such as Prozac, and she says she can't get off of it
Not many other people can get off of it either if they've taken it for a long time.
These things can make you super-great or super-not-so-great. Plus, I don't think it's a good idea to use an excuse to stop learning...See, our mind has brain cells. If they die, they're never coming back. The reason we learn is

1) We can keep those brain cells until they stop remembering all of the stuff we learn in school and remember little things in adulthood such as fixing a tire, doing bills, a skill in a job ect.

and B) We can relate to some things. By learning history you can think about how they resolved a war ect and use that in your everyday life (i.e. little wars with other people). Or reading a book and then being able to read a manual and understand it better.

Sorry if

You could speak to your mum, and ask her if it would be alright to do a lighter drug other than ritalin. If she says yes.. there ya go. She might take you back to your doc. and ask him about a lighter drug and so on.

*Every long lost road
led me to where you are
others who broke my heart
they were like northern stars
pointing me on my way
into your loving arms
this much i know is true
that God blessed the broken road
that led me straight to you.*
