How many of you have been diagnosed with ADHD

Just out of curiosity I was wondering how many of you have been diagnosed with ADD. I personally was diagnosed when I was 5. I got a hold of the report when I was 16 and one of my favorite parts explained how I insisted on telling the therapist about my nightmares instead of doing the activity he had laid out for me.

Re: How many of you have been diagnosed with ADHD

I like playing Connect 4. Did you ever see Blue Man Group? I stayed up until midnight last night. I hate crows. Why does Luigi take such a back seat to Mario? I came to win, battle me? That's a sin. Having surgery really sucks. I love to stuff a whole pack of big league chew or bubble tape in my mouth at once. Cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born there will never be another unicorn. Cheese is really good. Why do trucks make a beeping sound when they back up, but cars don't? Clicky pens are fun. Dodge. Dodge. Dodge. Head. Stomach stomach stomach stomach stomach stomach stomach stomach stomach stomach.

Re: How many of you have been diagnosed with ADHD

My sister was officially diagnosed and treated for ADHD when she was a kid. She was the typical hyper child but she was good at channeling all that energy into sports.

We both ended up participating in a study at NIH for kids with ADHD and their siblings. I only did like one or two interviews and they said that I probably have ADD but definitely not ADHD, I'm much too lazy for that.
I never got treated for it but I sort of wish that I had because I'd love to be able to focus more. One day at my old job I was sitting in a small meeting with my boss and 2 other co-workers going over some things and out of the corner of my eye I see this huge bird land on a branch just outside the window. Without regard for the meeting I blurt out "look at that hawk!" like it was nothing. Everyone gave me strange looks as I sort of shrugged and went back to whatever we were talking about. It's days like that where I wish I had some Ritalin.

Re: How many of you have been diagnosed with ADHD

I had ADD when I was young. My mother slapped me in the mouth a few times and I was cured, free of charge.

I'm not a doctor so this is just my opinion. I think all of these diseases and disorders are popping up so drug companies can sell psychiatric drugs. When I was young we didn't have all of these drugs on television. If we wanted a drug we'd roll it or pull a cork.

I think these drugs legitimately help some people. They are necessary and work. But I think there are a lot more people on them than really need them. The diagnosis becomes an excuse for poor behavior.

I know a girl who's son I can say really needs the drugs because he is all over the place all the time. With that said when I was in a custody battle they tried to say my daughter had ADHD and I could not fiigure out how they came up with that. The point they wanted to make is that I was a bad parent who did not pick up on this thus the mother was a better parent. Well after all was said and done the info they got from her mother was not the child that lived under my roof. So the only two things I could figure is either the mother lied or she was just a bad parent who had no control. These drugs they give kids is just crazy and studies show if you give these drugs to the best of kids it will still changes their behavor even if they where not needed. Personally I think alot of the problem stems back to the parents in alot of cases as they cannot control or do not take the time to work with their children. Its a plus for the school system as it makes life that much easier to have a bunch of druged up kids that are easier to take care of and the same goes for the parents. The drugs now take the place old discipline and the kids never learn how to deal with stuff in the real world. Whats going to be the effect on these kids as they grow up?

Doctors are way too quick to write a Rx these days when other forms of treatment and therapy would be more effective.
