I was going to type up a whole bunch of stuff but I decided not to and instead I just thanked Samone instead. I will say that until you have a child who has been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD than you have no idea. My cousin was diagnosed with ADHD and I don't believe he had it his mother was just lazy and never let him out to play. But my son has been diagnosed with ADD after 3yrs of me being in denial and trying everything to help him not need meds. His dad has it as well and I believe that the medication I was on to keep him from being born early has a LOT to do with the problems I have with him. Either way I do any and everything I can to help him and unfortunately I do have to give him a small dose of meds right now and even though his teacher keeps trying to get me to give him higher dosage I will NOT do it.

Say it 1 more time. People who do not have a child with ADHD don't understand but love to give their opinions.

I was told I had ADHD or ADD when it was popular, my mother changed up my diet and gave me vitamins. I'm glad my mother didn't go the drug route, sheesh I seen too many who got addicted to drugs later on down the line. So I was that child.

I thanked Neka and Samone's posts.

I've written about my experiences with ADHD, meds and the challenges managing it as an adult but this isn't the thread for that.Smile

I love it how he skips over these "underlying conditions" without explaining what they are.
I'll check the links posted to see if I'm missing something.

No luck. . Guess he wants people to buy his book. . Smh.. pretty pathetic of him to exploit this for financial gain rather than performing and publishing his own research in the public domain.

Oh and just because YOU didn't have it or need meds doesn't make it an absolute for others
And vice versa
