ADD - I have this shit. it made me get horrible grades throughout grade school, and made me an outcast from my friends...which i didn't even have come to think of it. I was nuts. I would run around doing crazy stuff, and no one knew why. But maybe i was never the outcast to begin with. I mean, dont you think people who sit in a metal chair for 7 hours a day listening to some middle-aged bitch teacher talk about crap are really all that smart? maybe THEY are the freaks. what normal person would be able to sit through a whole day of sitting and listening to bullshit every single day without getting figity or anxious or lethally bored?? Studies have shown that most kids with ADD are unusually smart and creative. when my parents finally decided to test me for ADD in 7th grade, the results showed that, at that time, i had the mathamatics and vocabulary skills equal to a college student, and that my IQ was 130.1 (30.1% HIGHER than whats normal). I showed great skill in drawing and could learn VERY quickly about things i had actuall interest in. ADD also gave me a much higher level of energy than the other kids; and so i exelled in gym. hell, i could run around all day without getting the least bit tired. So, perhaps the kids today with ADD are the "x-men" if you will, of our time, and should not be looked upon as children with some kind of DIS-ability, but as children with a SUPERIOR ability. Just wanted to let that out somewhere.
