> Gosh, please re-read my posts. I never said it is all in one's head. I have ADHD and so does my son. It uis real. But I am saying that it has been taken advantage of by the chemical companies and doctors... and we as a people these days often (not always) want that "quick fix" instead of perseveringthrough a problem.
> ADHD is real.. but we don't need ALWAYS to throw medicine into us. That's from experience... not conjecture.

> Just want to throw my 2 cents in here. Don't really have a dog in this fight as I don't have ADHD and I don't take sratterra, but I question you comment about the drug companies and doctors taking advantage of us. I'm sure there is alot of truth in what you say, but, my mother-in-law is alive today because of drugs that have treated her aggressive cancer and heart disease. We don't die of pneumonia and other diseases that killed our grandparents regularly and many people with ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, etc. are able to live much more productive and pleasurable lives with the aid of medication. Everyone must make there own choice, if you elect to persevere through your problems and that works for you then more power to you. For some of us that isn't really an option. I persevered through my anxiety/panic disorder for nearly 20 years and it just about killed me. I guess I'm just suggesting that sweeping generalities should probably be avoided. Best to you, Worrier.
