Ritalin and Rape — ADD Tip o the Day 344

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)

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at amazon.com, or smashwords.com (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.

    thank you for commenting. doug


  3. Wow that was a great title! It sure got my attention. I am quite frustrated by the thought of many that ADHD does not exist. There are members of my own family that think that way so I just don’t discuss my son’s problems or diagnosis with them. Of course this causes a rift but I just won’t tolerate ignorance in the face of so much evidence!
