ADHD: Serious Problem Vs. Bullshit Excuse?

Serious Problem

Bullshit Excuse

I can't really say it is a problem at all. It really depends on the child/person. If the child is unhappy, then yes it is a problem to their lives. I notice i have OCD and it is a problem to my life because i hate the feeling of it.

it is not a bullshit excuse because it is a chemical imbalance in the body, how ever it is not a serious problem because it is some what fixable with medication

Personally I think when people say that ADHD is a bull shit excuse, i think THAT'S bull shit. ADHD is a chemical imbalance in the brain. I myself am diagnosed with it, and actually know the struggle of trying to sit in school for six hours and trying to pay attention. Which is why most children with the disorder have there biggest troubles in school. So until you have lived a day with the disorder I dont ever want to hear how it is a Bull Shit excuse again.

Alot of the people on here don't really seem to know what their talking about. I have ADD and I know it exists thank you. However, it isn't a serious problem because when Im on medicene I feel an extreme difference. The problem is the side affects. But anyway its sort of annoying going on here and seeing people calling something that I have to deal with every day an exuse. I study longer than anyone else and can't make as good of grades as them. and that is frustrating. I can't catch onto things easily, I get distracted by noises and have to ask people to repeat things over and over, I forget what I'm supposed to be doing, I zone out. some people label me as an idiot. so if you don't know what its like to have this disorder, you shouldn't act like you do. It is NOT just a behaviour problem. and thats all ya'll are focusing on.

It is about the happiness and sadness of the children that through their facial expressions we should know their mood. All in all https://www.aussiewritingreviews.com/bestessays-com-au-review/ makes the processing process fast in the processor in the CPU.

Sometimes people/businesses come up with a "problem" so you will buy into their "solution".

no. it's not an excellent point. you shouldn't get points for saying that. Poeple have a problem. they need a solution, not critisism.

No one had ADD, ADHD, hyperactivity, etc., etc. 40 years ago.

Know why? Because there was no drug for it.

You were told to shut up, sit down, and pay attention in class.

Were there kids that would get up and wander around? Sure, I was one of them. Did I have ADD? No. I was bored shitless because I had a brain and had already read 2 chapters ahead in the textbook and it was boring to see Dennis Gilbert struggle with the word, "ball". That's the same reason kids today want to get up and run around. They're bored. And just like me, they need their little ass beat, and be told to "shut up, sit down, and pay attention."

My niece is one of those diagnosed as bipolar and now on lifetime meds.

We used to just be called moody, horny, angst ridden adolescents and everyone accepted that you would just grow out of it. Now, they get a "pill" and an excuse.

In my first year of senior school we had a case where this kid screamed his head off during IT, embarresing himself, later his excuse for this behaviour was: i have ADHD.

Side: Bullshit Excuse

ADHD, like other psychological illnesses are a result of how a person's condition and their environment interact.

For most people diagnosed with ADHD, the main environment they have trouble in is primary school.

A better solution then medicating children would be a modification of the school environment.

that doesn't make it a bt excuse though. It is still a serious problem.

Side: Serious Problem

I suspect that governments perpetuate the lie that ADHD is a legitimate mental illness as part of their grand design on total control. Or perhaps on a lesser scale to silence unruly children, by means of the administration of a potent behavioural control drug known as Methylphenidate.

You mean imaginitive, full of energy, creative?

Yeah, that's not a kid's problem, that's a parent who doesn't know how to be a parent problem.

ADHD is how kids are supposed to be.

I do not think it is a "bullshit excuse" and some people really DO have adhd. BUT many times it is used as an excuse to "calm kids down" who dont really have a problem, just unruley or need attention. ((Not all though))

I think it's both. In some cases it's too much sugar, not enough exercise, or just plain bad parenting, but there's always going to be the odd case that is genuine.

Have you ever had that disability. do you know what trauma people who have it face? are you that evil and full of malice?

Have you ever had that disability

Irrelevant.

do you know what trauma people who have it face?

Do you?

And if you do, do you have it? Can you attest to the exclusivity of the symptoms? Videlicet, can you verify that short attention span, attention seeking and mood swings are not symptoms commonly encountered in pubescent children?

are you that evil and full of malice?

False sentiment = bullshit.

I know two people that get medicated for that disorder but it's bullshit! There's nothing wrong with them except their parents are never around and they've never receive any discipline at all! A lot of people just need to chill the fuck out... it doesn't mean they have ADHD! Are you that ignorant and full of shit?
