What Do You Think About ADD And ADHD

I am working on a presentation about ADD/ADHD and I need some personal feedback. What do YOU think about this ADD/ADHD phenomenon? Do you think it’s over-diagnosed? Do you think it even exists? Are you diagnosed with it? Can you tell me about some of your struggle?

Any opinion about Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Questions About ADD And ADHD

To answer your query, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder do exist). It’s not a phenomenon. It isn’t over-diagnosed but some people are reacting too much if their relative or friend has it. It’s normal because of fear that the person they love is not normal or has a malady.

I’m not diagnosed with it but I know people who have it, and to tell you the truth most of those people are healthy and are leading a successful career, and they are productive in the society. They have struggles but because of the love and encouragement of the people around them, they are surviving, and they are prepared for whatever situation they might experience now and in the future. 

Well, I don’t see ADD or ADHD as a disease. People who have them might show some erratic behavior from time to time but that doesn’t make them abnormal or that won’t make them functional and helpful to the society. And another one, we should help the people we know who are suffering from such a plight because they need all the loving and understanding that we can give to them.

    I am 14 years old and I have ADD.
    My elementary years were terrible…i wasn't a behavior problem (most girls aren't) but I couldn't keep my mind on one thing. I fidget all the time… I multi-task and I have a very short attention span. I was diagnosed with ADD last year and at first I was upset. Why LABEL me with this disorder? I found out more about it and it's actually a breath of fresh air to know that that was the reason I couldn't keep many friends (communication problems) and that's why I always felt different.

    My older sister has it too…diagnosed when she was 18. She's 27 now. She says that when she makes love, its hard for her to enjoy it because she has so many racing thoughts and that creates relationship problems.
