I think ADD is over diagnosed and a catch all, but I do believe it exists. I think the spike in it is due to all the medications and drugs taken in our society in the last 50 years. My two nephews had true cases of ADD and ADHD respectively. People without the disorder react differently to their meds than they do because their brains work differently. In the end, alternative therapies worked the best for them. I think that is a huge problem. Over medicating the population. It's a vicious cycle imo.
I know how you feel, hang in there. We both know you can do it. Try not to let them bug you, it'll make them look bad and you feel great. Let's show the world that Aspergers isn't a thing to be ashamed of :) . I posted this on theta's message board and thought you need to read this as well.
Yes I do love the quote. I learned I had Aspergers when I was a freshman at high school. Till then, my doctors told me I have ADD. ADD is a joke now because so many people have this ADD, which doctors just labeled the issue. This is what I think, if you disagree, please tell me why, I'm intrusted to know.
