Ok ok, I read all about what you had to say shel swartz and I find it to be so rediculous that there is no reason to waste my time to defend myself, and many many others reading these replys who disagree with you. But I just had a little question, if you think that ADD is so made up, then why did you try to take strattera?

It's funny cause this makes me think of my old boyfriend who refused to see himself having ADD, although anyone educated on the topic could see that ADD was an issue for him right away, loved to argue the most rediculous points! He would take the most wrong idea and argue with anyone till he was right. This whole discussion quickly made me think of the proven theory that many people who have ADD unconsciously, based on brain-driven (not will-driven) mechanisms, play these types of ADD games as a way to boost their Adenaline and stimulate their frontal lobes. So, I just thought I'd give the readers another reason to laugh at how rediculous you sound. But hey youre entitled to your opinion just like the next guy, I'm just glad your not my dad, cause I actually am quite enjoying living up to my own potential! But goodluck to all my open minded friends who are still struggeling trying to figure out what works for them. I'd rather be a "guinea pig", who struggles through trial an error till their goal is met, than be the emotional mess that years of untreated ADD leads to.

I'd just love to say that if anyone is getting frustrated with figuring out how to best help an ADDer, or they are just plain skeptics to seriously purchase and read this book. I have recomended it before because I have read a number of books so as to get different viewpoints on the subject. It's amazingly helpful weather youre the ADDer yourself, or the parent, friend, or anyone else. It's called "Healing ADD The Breakthrough Program That Allows You to See and Heal the 6 Types of ADD" Daniel G. Amen, M.D.
