What are the symptoms? When I get under a lot of stress and the phone is ringing, ringing etc. and my head starts to feel like it's spinning, is that a sign that I might have it? Easy to fix by hooking up the boat and heading out to the lake.

My biggest worry is that when I have kids of my own and they're in school. I bet by then most education professionals will be diagnosing ADD/ADHD and any parent that refuses to take them in for psychic evaluation and the inevitable medicating that follows will be brought before child services for neglect. I wonder how long we'll have the choice to medicate or not medicate our kids.

Too late, ponyboy. I have a friend with an ADD child. Marriage broke up, mother put the kid on drugs, father refused, judge ordered him to medicate or else he couldn't see his own child.

You're half right, chewy. When my kid was sixteen he joined the reserves and went to boot camp for the summer. It was pretty good pay for a summer job. He loved it.

Discipline combined with physical activity is what these kids need. ADD kids are smart. That's why they end up in the trades. They get to use their brains while being physically active at the same time.

And i am that father that fought tooth/nail , so my children wouldn't be drugged by the pharmacabals evil lackies in the school system 99, most of which ARE NOT doctors btw, just present their 'findings' to them.

, and furthermore to these dope pushers!

That said , you would like a suggestion? Use that focus of yours to investigate any medication you're given, on, or have suggested use of, down to a CELLULAR level.


Meds are not 'one shoe fits all' , and the best patient results are when the patient fully understands the implications of remedies s/he is given

good luck

Parents and teachers really need to chill out. Every parent of an ADD child has been called into those ridiculous "not living up to his potential" meetings. My kid is getting honor's grades as a business major in university. No meds.

I'm waiting for the day this suggestion , my youngest is five and always in trouble , basically can't sit still.
Can't seem to focus on any one thing for long and is disruptive in class.
Everything comes easy to my boy , no matter what. Weather it's playing sports or school work , it just seems to click for him.
My mother inlaw told my wife he may have add and told her she should get him tested.
I lost my mind !
He is one of those kids that needs to be busy and challenged .
If he gets bored he can make some poor choices trying to entertain himself.
My other two boys are quite the opposite, sports ya they love em, but school they have to work at to do well.
I hope teachers and my wife put in the time to stimulate him as I try to .
He is my little shadow when he can come with me , he loves to learn.

I guess it would be safe to say I have ADD. I'm fine with it too, it forms a distinct personality. Add my anger and humor to it , you end up with Archie Bunker Dennis Leary point of view. Cross my path I click into diabolical plots to destroy you.
Im not antisocial, I just prefer not to have anything to do with fake people.
