All of these stupid ass mental disabilities are just complete ******** . People are just weak minded, half of these ***** that people get diagnosed with aren't real. ADD and ADHD are the 2 most over diagnosed things for kids there are... stop making excuses and learn some ******* self control. ******* control yourself and stop being weak minded.

They'll prescribe pills for lack of motivation now.

They call "laziness" ADHD now, they don't even diagnose ADHD anymore, they just call it that.
User avatar #75 - phudgepacker (12/28/2013) [-]
Add and adhd are not real conditions. They have been made up to subscribe to the notion that society requires us to be more civilized and learn at a young age that something is wrong with you if you cant like pay attention to a stupid ******* math lesson that probably wont even benefit you in your career.

Or maybe that's just what the system wants you to believe. Think about it.

Oh lord, so much butt hurt in the comments over the definition of ADHD when most of you don't even have it and/or know nothing about it
It differs from case to case. I have ADHD and I have amazing grades and **** , yet there was a kid I had in my grade last year who had ADHD as well and he got held back. Some handle it and some don't.
#61 - thechosentroll (12/28/2013) [-]
Well, since the comments are filled with more butthurt than amateur anal porn, I'll try to be as short and straight-forward as possible. NO ONE. GIVES. A. 						****					.   
   
No one cares about the difference between ADD and ADHD or if the kid actually has it. Parents just like blaming mental conditions and illnesses instead of admitting that their kids aren't perfect. Nothing more, nothing less. Now pull that stick out of your ass before you lacerate something.

Why don't people understand the difference between ADD and ADHD
the H isn't there for show, that kid look hyperactive to you?
User avatar #62 to #60 - richardastley (12/28/2013) [-]
ADD isn't a clinical term. You're thinking ADHD that is predominantly inattentive (I was always taught this according to the DSM-IV TR, so the ICD-10 might call it something different).

Also, the post is ******* stupid because it's psychologically diagnosed according to how abnormal the behaviour is relative to age. So no competent doctor or psychologist would tell a bunch of school children who are easily distracted they all have ADHD.
#100 to #62 - tastycupcakes (12/29/2013) [-]
i agree, the post is stupid. Perhaps when i learned about ADD and ADHD in psychology they were still considered to be separate things. I did learn about it quite some time ago.
User avatar #102 to #100 - richardastley (12/30/2013) [-]
ADD is still a legitimate term, it's just not the clinical term. I was just saying that calling ADD "ADHD" is acceptable.
#103 to #102 - tastycupcakes (12/30/2013) [-]
Gotcha, thanks for clarifying brother
#59 - anonymous (12/28/2013) [-]
When I was little I was misdiagnosed with ADD because my dad had it and I didn't like paying attention. I say misdiagnosed because I can pay attention just fine, but I was five or six at the time.

Who the hell wants to pay attention to teachers at five years old when you can doodle instead?

User avatar #43 - semifreddo (12/28/2013) [-]
I know you can't diagnose this from the internet, but I'm just wondering to you guys if I could be having ADD. I have super hard problems with taking the initiative and start working with my homework, like I wait till the day before it's due and write all night. I have stuff like music, english, science, and writing that I am surprisingly good at. English, music and science are the only things I think and daydream about. I have almost stopped entirely to think inside my head with my native language, swedish. Now I have transitioned to english thinking. Anyways that might just be some things I'm good at, but it's just that every single other subject in the world is the worst for me. In those subjects I just daydream away from them in classes or avoid working with them at home. When I was a kid I could literally not concentrate at all, and I mean severe concentration problems. I don't think I ever did anything till I got to eighth grade. Instead I daydreamed. I have no idea what I've written. I just hope someone that knows anything could leave a response.
#44 to #43 - lastsamurai (12/28/2013) [-]
I didn't do ANYTHING untill 10th grade where I started caring more and actually went to school instead of being sick all the time. I had concentration issues because I knew the grades didn't matter as long as I got into the school I wanted and I did. Now in my third year. The first year was an eye-opener for me because I didn't know being with friends at school was so much better and I started doing homework/practice for tests. I've been having MAJOR issues with sitting down and actually doing homework but I can assure you it's not ADD. It's pure lazyness.

If you go to sleep early and wake up relaxed you have a higher chance of working with school because you are relaxed and awake instead of sleepy and tired. It has been hard for me to actually start doing homework but I find that as soon as I start and make a habit out of it, I start doing it every day and that's a great feeling. You should really consider pulling yourself together and start doing homework, make a sqedule of some sort..

It's only a matter of not being a lazy **** . Every person has this sickness of when you do lazy things you get lazy.
User avatar #45 to #44 - semifreddo (12/28/2013) [-]
That made me feel alot better, and it's probably true. Thanks alot.
#46 to #45 - lastsamurai (12/28/2013) [-]
just remember that when you do lazy things, like sitting on the computer all day, you don't do homework because you're being lazy.
it's easier to go away from the computer right? so do that and you'll see you want to do homework more after a while. it's just small steps

I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was in the 1st grade. That medicine made me feel like I wasn't myself. I would always pretend like I took it and spit out the pill. They eventually stuck me special ed, with retards and kids who couldn't even read all because I didn't want to sit and do repetitive ******* work every ******* day. And It wasn't like I was a distraction or anything I just wanted to read my books that was all. But the teachers were all "hurr durr he isn't conforming like the other kids, he won't write the word 'mountain' 20 times somethings wrong with him". Then in 6th grade we had to do our state test I was in the top 2% of all the students in Washington the person who was behind me at my school didn't even make the top 15%. So they held a ******* assembly and I a ******* special ed kid got an award in front of the entire school for basically being the smartest kid there. Even though I had failing grades. If the school system were different and was actually meant to educate people my entire life would be different but school isn't about learning school is all about making you conform, it has nothing to do with intelligence if you aren't like everyone else you wont succeed in school.
User avatar #77 to #36 - admiralen ONLINE (12/28/2013) [-]
think that means you got autism bro
User avatar #96 to #77 - redstag (12/29/2013) [-]
No, I was intelligent in every subject I would ace tests left and right but I had failing grades because I wouldn't do the work. Autism would be like I was really ******* good at math or some **** and couldn't tie my damn shoes.
User avatar #97 to #96 - admiralen ONLINE (12/29/2013) [-]
i mean its signs of it, not being good in a group and understanding basic **** of society while being clever at some things

You're right, they're wrong. No... really.

The Pills are about $$$ for Pharma Companies, and enabling Lazy Parents and Factory Education.

That's no excuse to not be disciplined (because you need to focus in life to be productive), but your assessment of school is right-on-the-money. Don't doubt your observations just because nobody in your immediate family/school affirms them.

There are good people and interesting things out there. Find them, and make those your life.

I know what you're talking about. My parents used to give atomoxetine for my ADHD, and it made me lose my will to live altogether. When I told my parents I didn't like the drug they said I was "too hyper" whenever I didn't take it. I had to take the drug or else I wouldn't be able to handle myself, they said. So, like you, I hid it in my pocket, hid it behind my tongue, I did whatever I could to just not take these drugs. Whenever my parents found out I didn't take my meds, they would get mad at me and give me a speech because of it. Basically, my parents would get mad at me for saying "no" to drugs. I don't take them anymore, good riddance.
#56 to #36 - anonymous (12/28/2013) [-]
Kinda feel your pain there, i was diagnosed with some disorder and i can honestly say it ruined my life. Aside from being secluded to reside with absolute mental cases i couldn't socialize with other normal behaving people, the pure fact of having a label on me meant as soon as kids saw me they would think i was a retard and treat me differently.
And here i am today an adult with zero friends.
User avatar #53 to #36 - ishalltroll (12/28/2013) [-]
While ADHD medication does that to people (not feeling like yourself; becoming cold to emotions etc.), it can be really helpful in the sense that the concentration is extremely much higher if the effects hit properly. I live in germany and I actually know of a few students who got ADHD medication without actually ever being diagnosed, and simply using it to gain higher concentration during tests and while studying.
TL;DR: We need to find a way to nullify ADHD medication side-effects and then give that **** to every child at school.
#48 to #36 - kiboz (12/28/2013) [-]
True, but that can and has to be changed. I know it sounds silly, and I am still in school too, I have to go through the retarded tests and whatnot, but we could be the generation to change that. Never lose fate, and try to actually be the one who will change something, instead of just feeling bad about it.

I'm going to school to be a school counselor literally because that was the only person in the whole public school system who didn't try to shove me in a back room out of the way.
User avatar #39 to #36 - mutzaki (12/28/2013) [-]
School is necessary for rivalry in the job market, and that's pretty much it. If there were no grades to go on, choosing someone to work for you would be many times harder. You're right, school isn't meant to teach, and grades don't really tell you anything about what you learned, but rather what you achieved and how much time you put into your school work.
User avatar #40 to #39 - redstag (12/28/2013) [-]
It's true. I guess I didn't mention that once I got to college or tech school I actually did great, but public school was hell for me.

I just can't stand it when they use ADHD as a name for some sort of a disease
It's just a description, they're hyperactive, so they have ADHD, not the other way around

"disorder" is in the name of ADHD, fyi.

i think you have ADD and ADHD confused

How to tell if you have ADD
Sit down and try to wrrite or do an assignment you have no intrest in.
Push away all distractions, and focus on the assignment. If the assignment gets done, probably dont have ADD. I was only able to accept i had ADD when i sat in front of a computer for three hours trying to do homework and got nothing done. No distractions or goofing off, just sitting there.
User avatar #38 to #26 - moorbs ONLINE (12/28/2013) [-]
I procrastinate and get distracted extremely easily. If I did what you said and sat there with just the computer to write the paper it would still take me 3 days just from day dreaming, getting food etc. but I'm pretty sure I don't have ADD (or ADHD).
#92 to #38 - percy (12/28/2013) [-]
Why would you say you don't have ADD (just curious) because those are kind of the hallmark symptoms. Procrastinate, and easily distracted.
User avatar #94 to #92 - moorbs ONLINE (12/29/2013) [-]
If I'm not interested in something then it's hard to pay attention to it. Isn't everyone like that? I think it's just bad procrastination and not being interested in the topic because if I am interested I'm fine. I suppose it's always possible I do, It's just a lot of effort to get checked out when I get okay grades.
#99 to #94 - percy (12/29/2013) [-]
That sounds like ADD to me, id suggest getting checked, just cause medication can make a huge difference. Just beginning medication made me go from slightly below average employee with good attitude to almost as good as the assistant manager. My job isn't even mental, just better focus can help with most everything. Its your life though, and meds do sometimes make it harder to just goof off and have fun outside of work/school.

You shouldn't diagnose them to early if only because the need to learn some coping mechanisms. But based on my experience the child need control over their medication. My parents saw it as a miracle cure and just kept upping my dose until i had anxiety problems and constantly felt like i was ready to snap. Experiences like that can prevent adults from getting medicated, because it was so horrible as a child. But we really just need a more flexibe school system. I usually got the highest grades on tests but was perpetually failing because of not turning in homework. There is something wrong when someone can demonstrate they understand the material, but that isn't enough to pass them
