Of course its fake. And it has been argued by leading doctors in various fields for some time as being fake.
Of course everyone diagnosed with it, and then drugged up- will argue it is real. it is not.
And those downing pills to "fix" this fake problem are simply throwing reality out the window and buying big pharma another house, boat, car, at the
expense of feeling like a victim to biology.
There has never been, and never will be, a test that shows a physical difference or disruption in the minds of ADHD/ADD folks.
Why? Cus its a fabrication created to hustle and move drugs. Nothing more.
Sadly they will continue to pump our children (and unsuspecting and accepting adults) into thinking they have a special problem that drugs can only
fix. Its sad really…but hey, when 90% of all your friends "brag" about their condition as they swallow more and more pills to fix what is not
broken, you end up telling this to a blank-eyed wall that has no interest in what is true…they just want to feel like a victim and accept that they
are mentally broken.
Swallow some more pills…get those people rich!
Yea, try living with it and then claim it is a fictitious condition.
Once upon a time, I wondered what the hell was wrong with me. Why I could literally forget something within moments of reading it, or having it be
told to me. Why my mind raced from thought to thought, within moments. Why I couldn't recall the name of a co-worker after working with him for a
few months. Working on something important, the phone can ring, and I can utterly forget the last thing I was working on.. because by the time I am
done with that call, I have thought of 3 other things I need to do. I have had to learn to make extensive lists just to keep track of things. Once
focused, I can do an amazing job. I can get so much more done working from home without distractions.
Simple tasks that have many steps seem insurmountable. To the point where I never start them. I was getting my name changed back (I was adopted) to
my family name, and it took 3 years to complete. And it has nothing to do with procrastination. I've left my lunch on my counter more times than I
can remember going out the door, because something distracted me on the way out. And even thrown it away a couple of times with the trash on the way
to the car. I could go on and on.. you simply have no idea, if you have not had to live with it.
I do not take medication for it. I rather despise taking meds of any sort really. Would it help if I did? Perhaps, who knows. I do know it's hell
without it though, although I've learned many coping mechanisms.
Funny thing.. I like many, dismissed ADD. Really, didn't know much about it. I just heard about that condition where lazy parents laced their kids
up on meds to not have to deal with kids being kids. So I bought that line, never looked into it. But one day, was chatting with a friend online.
She was talking about forgetting things.. I mentioned yea.. very familiar with that. Got into details.. she said "I have a close friend with ADD,
you should check it out online."
So, I did. And I was pretty much stunned that not a few.. not a handful.. not even a majority.. but every single symptom listed, I experienced. And
most of them to a high degree, well beyond what I would consider normal for your every day, stressed human trying to eke a living in this rat race.
So.. please don't dismiss it out of hand, simply because you feel there is a big pharma involvement. Because they haven't "found it." There are
a host of medical conditions that exist, that they really have no idea how it is caused, nor how to cure it. I happen to know for a fact it's a
reality. Do parents and some adults jump onto the bandwagon because they have a bad memory, or hyper kids? Sure, probably. Doesn't mean it
Having to live with this condition is incredibly frustrating. Having someone tell me I am imagining it all is nearly as frustrating.
