I will be happy to trade bad days with you. Then you might think twice before calling people names. I'll warn you now, don't expect to get much done good or bad.

ADD/ADHD people can and do focus intensely on things that they find interesting--it's called hyperfocus. Perhaps "Get-a-Clue" above should be more thorough in his "research" before he tells someone they don't know what they're talking about. A simple Google search would have kept you from making a fool of yourself!)

Also, I'm assuming that people come here for support and understanding, and the above post (as well as a few other mean-spirited posts) don't help anyone. I was hoping to find a "home" to share the trials and tribulations of having this disorder, but I think I'll keep looking...

Shame on you. This disorder is very serious and misunderstood by many ignorant people such as yourself. Educate yourself and then come back here

Mark - It's not a disorder, it's the way God made you. You have a supercharged brain and you're different. ADD means your brain basically moves too fast for your wiring. And in many respects, you are BETTER than the boring masses because it's the ADD that makes you entertaining unique.

Funny, the value of homes in Hilliard have taken a very tough hit since Aug. 2008. Most are nowhere near and never will be again, the values that they sold for. Just as housing got cheaper and cheaper in Whitehall, Reynoldsburg, etc... The ghetto and barrio is right on your deck steps.

Since the quality of the housing in Hilliard isn't, well, of quality craftsmanship, that's the next suburb to fall.

Drug dealers, strippers and hookers already live there, it's just a matter of time before their clients start moving next door.

Back in the 1950's and early 60's, folks who had well built, large homes in East Cleveland and Cleveland Hts. pretty much thought like you. Have you been through either withing the past 20 years?

That's the future of Crapfabville.

Yeah, I knew you couldn't either but that nursing home felt sorry for you, so they let you live there for your welfare checks.

I question whether or not ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and ADD (Attention Deficit disorder) even exist. To help focus and concentration I take an OTC herbal product named Addrena that acts as a healthier substitute to Adderall. The product works great and does not have the terrible after effects that Adderall does. http://addrena.com/adhd-med-alternative-faq/
