haha no...not even close...this is Autism.

  1. Impaired ability to engage in social interaction;
  2. Impaired communication skills; and
  3. Specific behavioural patterns (e.g., preoccupation, resistance to change, adherence to nonfunctional routines and stereotyped and repetitive behaviours).

In addition, there are a number of other characteristics associated with autism. However, these characteristics do not have to be present for the diagnosis to be made. These include:

  • short attention span / impulsivity;
  • self-injurious behaviours;
  • odd responses to sensory input;
  • abnormalities of mood;
  • an uneven profile of skill development;
  • abnormalities in eating, drinking or sleeping;
  • unusual fears or anxieties; and
  • the presence of special abilities.

rookiebombtech;4055580a friend of mine has dyslexia and he cant spell very well or write things down but he is an electrician and is brilliant at that. his son has ADHD and i believe it is real as he isnt all there if you no what i mean he is hyper and cant focus on tasks doesnt really have friends etc but is still happy and hasnt got a clue what is really going on. as soon as it has anything to do with maths and technology he is there focused and will show people older than him up so in my opinion from my experience they are both real and drugs can help in cases of ADHD

eh.. a placebo will easily take the place of ritalin. I was diagnosed with ADD in high school and later with Adult ADHD in my early 20's. It doesn't take drugs to snap out of the daze you can get into if you're with this disorder, a simple snap back to reality from a loved one will do the trick, such as just calling your name if you ramble off while talking or a reminder to do something because it slipped your mind. Drugs in this case are just a lazy way out of trying to cope with it without taking any action to try and adapt to it. Especially on how highly addictive the drug you are supposed to take is. I'm a fortunate rare case that doesn't get addicted to anything, but friends of mine were not so lucky. They would just sell the pills to their friends because of the relaxed state it puts you in. Having experienced it first hand, you won't convince me otherwise.

no clearly you have no clue what Autism is (by that I mean Autsim and ADHD aren't the same) autism is a brain disorder that impairs communication, social skills, and behavior. The person has extreme difficulties relating to others. Autos Means self with autism, the person withdraws into the self. it may seem as if people with autism are in their own world. They often seem uninterested in others. For example, they may not notice when someone enters a room. Or they may prefer to play alone. Some avoid physical contact or become very upset when touch. how do I know I'm in the healthcare field.

I think it's just a character trait with a medical title slapped onto it.

Uh-huh. And I may have an extremely minor form of autism because I have poor social skills.

Every little facet of personality today seems to have some sort of psychological labeling tacked onto it.
