Points that 100% relate to me: 

  • Those with a childhood history indicative of possible ADHD —in general— seem to respond well to Ritalin; they calm down, they are better able to function at whatever it is they are doing. They feel better. Some have reported being able to sleep BETTER, when on a trial of Ritalin. THIS THIS THIS THIS.
  • Hinshaw’s research extended to examining what happens to girls with ADD or ADHD. Because girls tend to “act out” less obviously —they are not likely to be the kids that make a teacher’s life hell in the classroom. The girls aren’t running around wildly; they are far less likely to be a “problem” for their teachers. Therefore, girls are less likely to be appropriately diagnosed and treated. THISSSSSS THERE’S A REASON GIRLS AREN’T DIAGNOSED AS OFTEN, ADHD GIRLS HAVE A DIFFERENT WAY OF SHOWCASING THEIR ADHD WHICH WILDLY GOES IGNORED!!!! 
  •  Some of the characteristics common in ADHD/ADD —restless energy for example, a desire to explore or to try new things, to expand— may be crucial in a population in which the urge for exploration may be necessary for survival. A remarkable attribute of our species is our ability to adapt to changing conditions —this is how we managed to successfully spread out across our planet, and this is how we have been able to adapt to dramatic changes in the environment. The urge to explore, to create new tools as needed, to adapt to increased or decreased rainfall, may all depend upon having some members of a group having these same “brain differences” that are now problematic in the modern classroom, or contemporary corporations. MEEEE!!!!!!!! THIS IS MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! “RESTLESS ENERGY!!!!” MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For the record: I have been diagnosed twice with ADHD and am going for my third evaluation next week. It’s a real thing. I have it. And I’m sick and tired of people acting like I’m some type of crazed moron, when my brain is just wired differently.

STOP SHITTING ON PEOPLE GETTING HELP WHEN THEY NEED IT.

달콤하게 날 간지럽히던 말
The words that tickled me sweetly
내가 있어 행복하다던 말
“I am happy because of you”
잊혀질 수 있을런지
I wonder if I’ll be able to forget them
차갑게 내게 와서 꽂히던 말
The words that pierced me coldly
이제 그만 놓아달라던 말
“Please let me go now”
잊혀질 수 있을런지
I wonder if I’ll be able to forget them
