Who /adhd/ here? How do you get meds for it quickly? I could only get an appointment for two months from now and I feel like I'm gonna flunk this semester if I don't get something.
That's part of it. It's also difficult to stay structured in general. I also trip up on my words sometimes because my mind is going a mile a minute. It's the result of lower than normal dopamine levels in the brain. Just because you don't understand something doesn't mean it isn't real.
>(About half of kids with ADHD still have it in adulthood.)
Then you have your link saying "Using anatomic magnetic resonance imaging, the study showed that the volume of the frontal lobes in boys with ADHD was an average 11 percent smaller than that in a control group of boys."
So is ADHD solely a deficit in the frontal lobe, and if so it says in my link that most adults lose their ADHD when they reach adulthood
That would imply their frontal lobe grew to be normal somehow
Yep, I can't tell if it's really ADHD or if some people are just meant to remain retarded
I've been diagnostized with ADHD when I was like 13 and I don't feel my brain changed that much, I'm sure it got worse with the meds I took if anything, I've never had any of those drug dependency and impulsiveness and whatever, today I have much more discipline than pretty much everyone I know, it was all because I couldn't focus in boring school learning about the joy of multiculturalism
Well yeah I guess this is pretty anecdotal but I rest my case, there were plenty of people in my school who were on adhd meds for ... not much, the reasons they are diagnostized with adhd is always retarded
I've only ever known 1 kid who was legit hyperactive and pretty autistic
