seriously, what the hell.. you want to discuss autism, make it in a new thread. ADHD is not autism, so I'm sure the parents reaction will be very different. So instead of constantly comparing a psychological condition to a mental one (there is a difference) why don't you go ahead and make that new thread. Post one more time about autism in this thread and I'm removing all of your posts that were made in here.

I'm interested in what that difference is.

ADD and ADHD go basically hand in hand and do exist (in my opinion). I have ADHD and have been taking meds for it for about 8 years now. So I take it very seriously. Autism is a completely different story (so I think). I'm not good with disease/diagnoses but thats what I think.

So instead of constantly comparing a psychological condition to a mental one they are both mental.

vadereclipse;4055814it's not nice people saying something you have does not exist. and it was incredibly mild insults.

Do I care? no. You've been more than hostile in this thread thus far. You're only making yourself look the fool when the best thing you can come up with to defend yourself is an insult.

Ouch. Now I know the following is Copy and Pasted but just read it:

Wikipedia on ADHD Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or Hyperkinetic Disorder as officially known in the UK though ADHD is more commonly used, is generally considered to be a developmental disorder, largely neurological in nature, affecting about 5% of the world's population. The disorder typically presents itself during childhood, and is characterized by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity, as well as forgetfulness, poor impulse control or impulsivity, and distractibility. ADHD is currently considered to be a persistent and chronic condition for which no medical cure.

Who agrees with it? I know I do as I am easily distracted and can lack self control in some situations.

Seems you missed the part of my first post which has already quoted that very same article.

Yes ADD and ADHD exist, its just that doctors will say you have it even if you dont. It gets you coming back, making them more money, all the while they prescribe overpriced medicine. The medicine companies give the doctors gifts, money, free lunches, ect, to prescribe the shit.

Red Menace;4055947I 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.

That's very well said and I suppose that's also the way I look upon it.
