thankyou. I believe that I am of the 40% who do not retain ADHD as an adult, as I am finding concentration easier, i can play sports better, and in general am able to socially interact better.

Bah. Doesn't make it any different. Just sticks a "Related to Autism Title" to it.

vadereclipse;4055738you don't understand. there is evidence. as a person with ADHD, i know it exists. and there is medical evidence you ignorant piece of crap. for all you know, you DO have ADHD. who are you to say it doesn't exist? and i wan't talking to you. I know that they are not the same. there are similarities.

I will not tolerate the name calling in this forum. This is for a debate.. refrain from making your posts personal attacks.

it's not nice people saying something you have does not exist. and it was incredibly mild insults.

Why are you so hostile?

Autism is a spectrum and it does exist. I am an Asperger autist (a "mild form" of autism) myself. I don't have ADHD but I know that some autistic people (as well as non-autistic people) do have ADHD. The problem is that many teachers at school don't know the difference and confuse ADHD with autism.

I find some people don't belive in disorders..but they are real and proven too.

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

Autism is a disorder. It is a result of impaired brain development. I think you will be pretty hard pressed to find someone whose personality was the result of brain impairment.

Bah. Doesn't make it any different. Just sticks a "Related to Autism Title" to it.

That can be extremely offensive to those who do have autism.

I think some people probably do have ADHD but I also think that it is way over diagnosed. Everyone and their mother seems to have it now and in my "professional" opinion in most of the cases I’ve seen, a little discipline would go a long way.

Of course, try telling that to a group of mothers with 'autistic' children and you're liable to be lynched, catcalled, and/or sued. It's like the gifted thing. Every mother believes their child is gifted, even if they're really not all that smart or special in any way.
