ADD and ADHD have virtually no reputable tests whatsoever to determine its existence. It only exists out of convenience for adults who don't want to
do their jobs as parents, teachers, or authoritarians and apply the proper discipline so that their kids can learn to control their own minds.
Since you're so hellbent on proving the existence of ADHD, please show me the proper procedures for testing and diagnosis.
Oops. That's right. The only way that they can determine it is by creating a list of "symptoms" because, "THERE ARE NO OFFICIAL LABORATORY TESTS
WHICH ADEQUATELY SAYS, YOUR CHILD HAS ADHD."
I could make up a list of symptoms right now that you probably have, create an illness in which these symptoms match, and then have you on drugs for
the rest of your life because of MY OPINIONS of YOUR SYMPTOMS.
In fact, I'll create one right now.
1. subject is argumentative
2. subject always believes that they are correct
3. subject has a problem with moderation
4. subject shows unruly tendencies
5. subject cannot spell and doesn't know the difference between the words to and too even though they are in adulthood.
6. subject appears to be delusional and sees sickness and disorders everywhere (hypochondria)
Well now. We can throw the word "delusional" in there with the idea that you always think that you're correct. Add on the fact that you have a
problem with moderation and authority...and what do we have?
3. hatred of authority
Well, here's my diagnosis just from your posts.
You have acute symptoms of bi-polar disorder with elements of schizophrenia. This can be cured, or controlled with a bit of thorazine, Zoloft, and
See how easy it is in the psychiatric industry? I could come up with disorder after disorder if I choose to.
Here's the real fact. Parents have become lazy and don't want to perform the responsibility that it takes to raise a child. Children have energy
and they don't want to be confined to a classroom for hours when they would much rather be outside playing. Since most of today's children are
offshoots of the pathetically lazy Baby Boomer Generation who smoked so much dope that their brains have slowed, their inability to keep up with
anything has made them apathetic to their own duties as parents.
Quit punishing the kids for the weakness and the lack of responsibility that adults should be taking. Its getting out of hand. So, I TOTALLY agree
with the moderator here, and think that maybe you should study up on the "disease" that has so many children on psychotropic drugs.
I have yet to see you post one FACT for your outlandish opinions. The only place that ADHD exists is in the confines of YOUR OWN MIND.
Here's some information that you obviously would not look up for yourself:web4health.info...
What do all of these links, and any other link concerning ADD and ADHD have in common?
They all say that there are no LAB TESTS TO DETERMINE ADHD. In other words, it is a TOTALLY FABRICATED ILLNESS of which there are no tests, because
the illness in of itself...DOES NOT EXIST.
So, what ends up happening is this. We allow some quack to look at our children, tell us what we want to hear because we are failures as adults and
don't want to do our jobs, and then allow them to DRUG OUR CHILDREN up with some of the most powerful psychotropic drugs in the history of man so
that we no longer have to do the necessary work that it takes to keep up with our children. Pathetic.
If it weren't for the stoic nature of my parents, they would have been convinced by some retarded child psychiatrist to have done the same thing to
me. I was diagnosed with ADD at 5 years old. I am now 37. I was a straight A student that had tons of energy...in fact, I still do. But, this
wasn't enough for the psychiatrist. He wanted the kickbacks for prescribing useless and dangerous medications that would have permanently altered my
People like you worry me because you will agree with anything that you see in print, by people of "upstanding reputations," as long is it conforms
with your predispositions. God help us all.
