With ADD or ADHD, educating ourself is an important tool, and it’s important that we get accurate information. And we may have a tendency to be gullible.
For example, recently Indiana GOP U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, informed us that a woman cannot get pregnant from rape. Who knew??
“There is no idea so stupid that you can’t find a professor who will believe it.” H.L. Mencken – ‘or some fool to champion it.’ Anonymous
So we will need to get into the discussion of whether or not ADD or ADHD really exists, and then about the myths of Ritalin. Coming soon to a blog near you.
(I think we will skip the discussions of whether or not the earth is flat, or whether or not the sun revolves around the earth. But we may mention some of the myths about ritalin being harmful, and about too many children getting it, and about doctors being paid to prescribe it. Or not)
