I have ocd of symmetry.. Im defo having a moment today.. Is this why my fkin mind is constantly on the fucking go I have suffered and taken it out on others.. I feel like the guy from the first comment. Im 20 and reading the signs also gets my eyes watery. I would love for the public to see this comment. I've been diagnosed with ADHD since the 5th grade, and I stopped taking the medicated patches in the 9th grade.

I am now 20 and have been in trouble with the criminal justice system a number of times, and I feel as I am stuck in quick sand and there's nothing I can do to stop the downhill train I'm on in life. My mind knows and I naturally feel the ADHD is something that is hindering my life in a very fast destructive way.

I'm desperately searching for help this is what led me to this article in the first place. Something that is very self destructive. Reading this article - esp those 20 signs- makes me want to cry! I'm 34 years old and just recently started seeking professional help for my 6 yr old son whom I believe has ADHD- only to find out that I actually have it! I knew long ago that these 18 signs i don't self medicate nor do i have marital problems- well except in relation to my ADHD-ness largely defined me but i always thought that it was just my personality.

But why would I? I actually had some great teachers - esp in Maths and Sciences, who somehow kept me "interested", which is probably why I did exceptionally well both in school and university -- of course a lot can be attributed to my, then useful, hyper-focus ability. Unfortunately, unlike my single life years when the world was mine, I struggle now being married with kids- more to juggle, more forces pulling on me, more effort to balance it all!

Yes I typically get on a high when Im pressured and can sometimes perform even better that way I felt like I've been failing as a mother for a long time- only to know now why I feel this way I have just started to read a few good books and other resourceful material to help me understand ADHD. The funny thing is I am so sure my dad has it too! He hyper-focuses just as I do I even recognized that as a teen and was proud to be "smart" like dad! He was extremely successful and have started his own medical distribution companies from literally nothing. Proud of him and hope to be proud of myself as well - one day!

I know at least I have the positive thinking in my genes : Just need to master motherhood for now- instead of being its slave!

Difficult journey for a normal woman- let alone one with ADHD! Thanks for an insightful article National Library of Medicine:. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD is a problem of not being able to focus, being overactive, not being able control behavior, or a combination of these. For these problems to be diagnosed as ADHD, they must be out of the normal range for a person's age and development. These behaviors include failure to pay close attention to details, difficulty organizing tasks and activities, excessive talking, fidgeting, or an inability to remain seated in appropriate situations.

Basically, the box is: these kids and adults are disabled; they can't focus, can't function and need to be medicated in increasing quantities. Once again, America has been saved by tireless, selfless pharmaceutical companies that, out of the goodness of their hearts they are nonprofits, right? Why the increase?

Because it's an observational diagnosis, and too easy to label, disable, and continually medicate. What is and is not ADHD becomes diluted and confusing. Some of this is the doctor's fault, but not all. School systems demand testing, and parents—struggling with their roles—research the issue and bring their child to the office with a diagnosis in hand, wanting confirmation.

If the diagnosis is observational in nature, and the parent says all the right things, what is the doctor to do? Whatever they are fed, how they are raised or educated, has nothing to do with it. The best and most convenient solution is to medicate. Yes, the inside the box solution is to label, disable and medicate, so everyone can continue their lives uninterrupted. I refer to ADD as a gift, as part of the evolutionary process, and those individuals are the architects of our age. That label, in and of itself, is a misnomer, because individuals with ADD can be hyper-focused and are able to multi-task.

CIS was what the mad dash to label, disable and medicate children was really about—the need to herd free-thinking individuals back in with the rest of the sheep.

When engaged in something of interest, they are scarily brilliant; when trying to fit them into an educational box that is the wrong shape, they flounder. You can't teach a fish to climb a tree.

Stolen Child

You're better off helping them into the right stream, river, lake, or ocean. Each person has unique traits and talents. The U. How can parents and children cope with such a common misconception? Many famous people have used those traits to achieve their full potential, such as: Edgar Allan Poe, Leo Tolstoy, and Ernest Hemingway, whose written works stand the test of time; Steven Spielberg, who delights the eyes with flashy cinematography and effects; Beethoven and Mozart, whose melodious notes are still loved by many; John F.

Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln and George Bush, whose lives grace history books across the globe; Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and Galileo, who revolutionized the world with their observations and discoveries. And the list goes on.

Amidst behaviors that are thought to lead to failure, individuals have achieved incredible feats. Absolutely Can it be turned into a curse?


There are people, companies, organizations, and politicians who don't care about a child's best interest, only about them as a cash cow. Billions of dollars are spent by drug companies on advertisements, lobbying legislates, and funding read: controlling of the majority of research studies. How can you have a series of paid adults of varying quality raise your child and then wonder how they turned out so poorly?

ADD/ADHD - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

People struggle to see the gifts because of the dilution of the diagnosis and the misinformation provided by those who benefit from medicating and disabling children. Children who are gifted—highly intelligent, creative, outside the box thinkers and problem solvers, energetic, justice-oriented, natural born rebels, empathetic and intuitive.
