What percentage of people diagnosed with this "adhd" are illiterate, who don't take speed?

I don't know, why don't you ask the majority of dead geniuses whose work wasn't accepted in their own time, yet is paramount to the way we understand
HOW is he going to be able to develop that genius if he doesn't have the skills to harness his creativity?
Good question. What does this have to do with being institutionalized?
Guess what happened in my family? Nobody graduated high school. We were all bored out of our minds.
Brother is a professional skydiver, and artist.
Mother is an executive VP of an apartment leasing company.
Father runs his own plumbing business dealing with new construction on franchises.
I dabble in a little bit of everything, but am trying to excel in the corporate world, atm (super difficult, but needs ma spinaches)
Just asked my father what he thought of ADHD, he gave me one word, "conformity", then whizzed past me to go get # done for the day.
Dude would definitely have been diagnosed ADHD if the label was "discovered" sooner.
We live next to a NASA scientist, and a doctor + lawyer couple.
We weren't institutionalized, that's how.
