"Clueless", eh? Because I disagree with your argument?
Yes, clueless. You seem to think you know what i am feeling, and what my condition is, you even jump on the bandwagon with all this "Genius"
I am what i am, and its as simple as that.
Like I said, I've dedicated my life to medicine, medical studies and the medical profession.
and? does that give you the right to know whats going on in my head, and my condition?
It's not like I'm wholly uneducated on the subject
Good for you! Do you have ADD? no, you don't.
So, you got diagnosed.Good for you
Yes, being diagnosed was very good for me. My life is 10 times better!
So, you have issues concentrating.Good for you...I do too
Another ignorant post there! Its not just about concentrating, read up on ADD, you might learn something.
It motivates me to work harder.
Again, you don't have ADD!
You're fidgety Good for you...so am I
See, again, you think you know what someone with ADD has to go through, and, you don't have a clue. You have said concentration and fidetey. You
think these are the only symptoms of ADD!?
Exercise some self control and perhaps the need to blame your issues on some imaginary learning disorder might diminish.
If you are in the medical field, then God help us all! I don't have issues as i used to have, actually, i have a happy life.
I said "might" because after reading some of your posts, it appears you need that crutch...which is fine
crunch? please explain.
I had no issue with you until you singled me out personally.
How did i single you out. I have had debates with other people on this thread. Believe me, you are not that special lol
So I disagree with you.If that's what, in your opinion, is what makes me "clueless"...well...then it really seems like you have more problems than
a "learning disorder".
You are begining to make yourself look a bit foolish now. Yes, i think you are clueless on the subject, and if anyone reads your posts, they will see
this. I have stated you are clueless because you seem to kno whats in my head, and how i am feeling, like you are some super powerful doctor!
When you got "diagnosed", did you get a second opinion?
Not a second opinion, not a third. All in all, i have seen four people. When i was diagnosed, that was only after seeing one person, but i saw four
all together in 5 years.
Have you undergone CT scans and brain wave functionality tests?
No, i have not. But, even if i did, what will that prove to you because your mind is made up, as it clearly shows because you are so convinced its not
Do you have any real data, in a hard scientific form, that supports that this condition is anything other than fanciful drug company propaganda?
Should you provide the results from scans, cognitive functioning tests (which I used to administer to my clients, so I'm quite familiar with how they
work) and lab results, I'd be more than happy to review and research them and perhaps we can engage in civil, educated conversation.
Why the hell should i show you anything, why should i have too. Even if i did, what would be the point, you think its all rubbish. I am on this board
to talk about my condition. If you think i am lying, or anything like that, then thats your problem, not mine. I have seen four people, over give
years, and they have help me alot. I started taking ritalin, and i have never looked back, and i am happy because now i have control over my life.
Well...until then, I will continue to disagree with your "poor me I have add" attitude and I will continue to hold to my educated opinion that this
"disorder" is just another pseudo-scientific fad created to sell drugs and give people yet another crutch and excuse to fail at life.
Poor me! I am a "poor me" because i have come on this thread to stick up for me, and other people who have ADD? Just like anyone would do! but you
think thats wrong, because you disagree with it! You have just showed your arragonce and ignorance yet again!
Fail at life!? you are wrong yet again! Again, you seem to be some super human doctor who thinks he knows what evreryone is feeling, and what life
they are leading.
Ok, here is my life!
I am a self employed webdesigner. I am also an artist. I am married to a beautiful girl. I have travelled and lived in China, and travelled asia (
want photos) Does that sound like a "failed life" to you?
