QUESTION: Anyone else feel really, really hyper sometimes (or a lot of the time)? I've really begun to notice that I'm always far more hyper than my friends, to the point of worrying that I may have ADHD. I don't really know anyone with ADHD, but I've heard about it and read about it. Can anyone that has had any experience with ADHD share a bit of their experience, please?

  1. Because they think you are sad, pathetic sack of shit.
    Kidding, sort of. They probably think you are lonely.

  2. You'd know if you had ADHD, it greatly affects your mind. Your brain feels heavy and slow unless you are extremely interested in whatever you are working on. You are extremely distractable regardless of how important your work is, and you feel panicky because of it. You can't "just focus", ever, because your mind shuts down the moment you try to force it. ADHD is also a problem that begins in childhood, which is when the hyperactivity is the most noticeable. It's rare that an adult doesn't grow out of that aspect of the mental disorder.

    I have ADHD and personally I find the mental side of things is MUCH more of a burden than anything else. I don't know your whole story, but this doesn't sound like ADHD if you are just hyperactive without any of the other symptoms. You might just have high energy levels? I had a friend like that in high school, she couldn't eat chocolate or drink coffee because she was wired enough 24/7 without it, haha. She didn't have ADHD either. But could be worth talking to a doctor if it's really impacting the way you live your life.

  3. ADHD is a made up diagnosis designed to sell expensive medication to children who have parents that lack either the time or the interest to provide some structure to their lives. No, this does not mean just enrolling them in after school programs or other suburbanite bullshit.

    If you have a hard time focusing on something you're not interested in, maybe it's just because you're not interested in it. If you feel panicked when your lack of interest prevents you from finishing some important work, it's because you've placed a lot of importance on completing this "important" work, even though you're not at all interested in it.

    Society places expectations on children, for how long they should be able to sit still, or pay attention to activities they have no interest in. If there's a kid who has no interest in school, maybe for good reason (the Ontario public school curriculum, for example, is a joke, as are most of the teachers), there must be something wrong with the kid, and you should medicate them into submission. It's practically criminal.

    It's time people stop turning to drug companies to fix manufactured problems. Better parents and better social support structures (teachers, for example, who are invested in their job and not just trying to extract as much public money from their employer as possible) will go a long way to changing our society's views for the better, and stop this fraud.

  4. You are either incredibly ignorant or a decent troll.

    If you are trolling A+ for effort.

    If you really believe this please get educated. Think critically. Don't believe everything you read on random blogs.

    Please stop contributing to the stigma of mental health issues.
