Meh, Sky's just in the mood to get a rise out of everybody, methinks.
The wife floats off into D town quite a bit, and when it gets too bad, I just nudge her back with a gentle verbally spoken "Hey D". Until we actually figured out what was happening in that lovely grey matter behind that thin layer of skull cap, things could get pretty "flying circus" in some of her conversations.

Take away the silly Ritalin and rest of the nonsense medicine for "ADHD" "ADD" And get out and do something, use your hands, legs, create something Think about solutions or whatever, cause you people out there!
with ADD / ADHD are SPECIAL! yes its true you have a gift, that the top people dont like.. they want to dumb you down ,,,,, and they are doin a god damn god job.
I would not attempt to pose my situation as being comparative toward others diagnosed with ADHD, because I really don't know how it compares, or even is such a thing is worthy of pondering.
I tried so damned hard to sit still in class. It drove me crazy(er) and I was reported on several occassions to the principal. I felt like what the teacher was saying was OBvious, and that it was mundane and boring and worthless. I had "crazy legs"
I have to say that many people with adhd/add are extremely creative people, and some have learned to use their adhd/add to their creative benefit.

Let them stay in the Fog and not learn when they could be helped.
If they improve, thats fine. But if "improvement" means they shut up and sit down and let themselves be indoctrinated, thats no improvement.
