in my eyes i think ADD and ADHD is misdiagnosed all the time. just because a child can't fully control themselves all the time in a classroom doesn't mean they should be put on drugs. look at how wild robin williams is. can you imagine what he was like as a kid in school. i saw an interview with him on bravo the other day and he said jokin it was either the mad house or acting. the man speaks 5 languages and if he didn't act aspired to be a nuclear physist or something of that nature. so don't be fooed by a lazy teacher giving you crap because all she wants is a paycheck every 2 weeks. we all know really good teachers are few and far between.

i was put on ritalin when i was a kid for ADHD and though it helped somewhat because it is legal "speed," the side effects far outweighed the benefits. i couldn't eat, i gagged a lot, and was very anti-social while i was on it. im convinced i have lasting psychological problems and stomach problems because of this drug. now that im an adult i would only use ritalin as a last resort. this is coming from a guy that was on ritalin, don't put your kids on drugs!

oh yeah, next time the army calls you up and asks if you want to join say you've been on ritalin. they'll tell you sorry, you can't join then, have a nice day. the day i left for college i got called by a recruiter and that's what happened. she wouldn't tell me why either but i found out the truth later from a friend that was enlisted. ritalin apparently can make people "crazy" especially on the battlefield and troops who were on the drug were killing there own guys. think about that next time a teacher or doctor suggests these so called wonder drugs.

sorry if i got a little heated,

It's a post based on honesty, who could fault you for that? Maybe some don't want to believe or hear it but some will and it is appreciated.
