There's no such thing as Bi-polar, ADD, ADHD, etc.

The cause? Bad parenting. There was none of this shit ~20 years ago. Parents knew how to spank and how to take care of their kids. Now it's just sugar, caffeine, video games and "everyone's a winner".

tl;dr = Control your goddamn emotions like the rest of us.

Wrong.

While often it's misdiagnosed, and is used as an excuse, you'd have to be a fucking moron to deny it's existence

So we agree that those who are hyper misparented little sugar filled fucks are usually diagnosed with the fake ADD bullshit just to sell them drugs?

Without any figures, i couldn't comment on most.

But yep, it's definitely over diagnosed.

I agree with the OP.
Its easier to make a kid eat a pill onec a day than tell it to stop something it shouldn't be doing, potentially hurting their feelings and making them cry.

I've got ADHD.

Symptoms: Have a hard a time focusing (who doesn't anyway?), subconsciously talk really loud, do stuff immediately without thinking.

It is definitely not just bad parenting, although some misdiagnosed cases may have been just that. I have 3 younger sisters, two of them are normal but the third has also been diagnosed with ADHD and does just the exact things I mentioned above.

Saying that ADHD is fake and just an excuse for parents who suck pisses me off like no tomorrow. I bet all of those who say that don't have any first hand experience with it and base your opinion from something you have read / heard / seen on tv.

Mitch, agreed

@ Sydney if you can play bf2 for longer than 5 minutes without wandering off to eat cake then there is nothing clinically wrong with you imho.

I don't know if ADHD exists but if it does it is waaaay over-diagnosed. Most kids just lack self-discipline and self-control.

I agree that it is BS in most cases, but I do think it does effect some people.  I know  excellent parents that have kids that are out of control despite their best efforts. some people are just not wired right, and you cant always blame the parents.

They told me that I had ADHD when I was in second grade.

In third grade, they concluded I was just bored.

So yeah, it is overdiagnosed. TO THE MAX.
The idea of any hi-fi system is to reproduce the source material as faithfully as possible, and to deliberately add distortion to everything you hear (due to amplifier deficiencies) because it sounds 'nice' is simply not high fidelity. If that is what you want to hear then there is no problem with that, but by adding so much additional material (by way of harmonics and intermodulation) you have a tailored sound system, not a hi-fi. - Rod Elliot, ESP

once upon a midnight dreary, while i pron surfed, weak and weary, over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot  xxx galore'. While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour, " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered, " give me back my free hardcore!"..... quoth the server, 404.

Well, whatever you think, drugs are awesome. They make me talk instead of shout and I can actually focus on semi-boring stuff like school.

Also, I've NEVER been out of control, my parents did an excellent job on raising me tbh.

I see a small child and a sand pit (however, I offer no sick joke), a pervy cameraman in the background and a pedo about to enter queue left.  Pity we cant see all of the ass on the bird in the yellow bodywarmer.  Could well be mid 40's but hey, who are we to be all picky, fussy and choosey?

Err bi-polar depression is completely different from ADD/ADHD.

tl;dr = Shut the fuck up until you know what you're talking about.

Parental discipline has nothing to do with bipolarity.

massively misdiagnosed, but it does exist

Bipolar disorder stems from low levels of lithium ions in the brain that the nerve cells use to communicate, not bad parenting.
