Hypertension is one of the leading causes of death. There is nothing normal about it.I don't mean to minimize anyone's problems, but I can't help but wonder if ADHD is at least partly an imaginary disease that the drug companies have invented just to sell their products. Is part of this problem just a re-definition of childhood restlessness to make it a disease that requires drugs?
The same thing has been done with high blood pressure and osteoporosis. Problems that used to be considered normal until they got very extreme are now often defined as diseases that require medical treatment.
I am an adult with ADHD. As a child I was never diagnosed. Not until my life was a mess (personal and professionally) that I was diagnosed.
ADHD isn't all about the kids.
