Boy, there’s a lot of theories out there. And certainly a lot of OPINIONS. What is ADD (or ADHD)?
ADD doesn’t exist: it’s just a conspiracy to make doctors and pharma rich. It’s caused by food additives or diet. It’s caused by poor parenting, lack of discipline and structure. It’s just normal behavior that parents and teachers don’t want to be bothered with. And I’m sure that someone attributes it to demon possession or to electronic waves from cell phones or to vaccines, tho i honestly haven’t read those particular ideas yet.
From the scientific viewpoint we find that people who are diagnosed ADD or ADHD have changes in the brain that show we are different from vanilla people. Of course, it’s possible that those changes are caused by voo- doo or some of the other causes listed above. Nonetheless, we do seem to be helped by stimulant medications, ritalin and others, most of us anyway, and all of us by strategies.
So, whatever the causes, we need to keep on working on ways to make our lives better.
