I used to think i have ADD and i might have it because i read some information about it and i read what the symptoms are. I have some of those symptoms that i saw on the list TSA showed. That's why i talked to a psychiatrist awhile ago to see why i have a hard time keeping a job because i used to have a lot of jobs and i didn't stay with them long. I thought that i might be able to qualify for mental disability money but the psychiatrist i talked to said he doesn't think i would qualify for it.

ADD means your brain moves too quickly to focus.
ADHD means your body tries to keep up.

Adderol is amphetamine which is designed to speed your brain up even faster. There is apparently a point where you brain moves so fast it can actually bring itself into focus.

you know what, When i drink energy drinks or god body coffee (god body brew only) I can think VERY clearly. It's almost shocking. You can even go back to my post history on here and see which posts were coffee and which were raw dog.

When i drink energy drinks i can read books, write stories, and study, when i don't i can't do any of these things without getting distracted by something as pointless as a car passing by outside my window.

Same. I'm not ADD but I'm way better on stimulants. I don't like adderol though. Having abused it a bit like most teens it's not a good drug. I like caffeine and that's about it for stimulants. Coke and Amphetamines aren't a good feeling.

ADD is not a REAL disease. There is no clear cut dry positive/negative test that any doctor can perform to confirm that you have or do not have ADD.

ADD is just a fancy medical term for saying you are dumb, incompetent, and worthless and a poor student/employee/whatever else. WGAF if you have a problem concentrating or paying attention. Calling this a disease is an insult to people who have REAL diseases. Man up. Put your big boy pants on and get out into the real world and stop making excuses for your failures or learning deficiencies.

that list is not an ADD list, 20 years ago it was called "being a kid"

if you still have these symptoms when your in your 20's, you just havent matured

dude you're a dweeb from an internet forum with horrendous grammar calling people dumb lol. what do you know about big boy pants niggat?

you people have a vague understanding of the situation. it's not 'being a kid' when 40 year olds are suffering from it.

and it's just not being hyper, it's almost like a total lack of control of your thoughts and their pace, its makes everyday life extremely difficult for people that have it.

you can call diabetes 'being american' in that respect. doesn't mean it's not a problem..

Wrong.

ADD no longer exists, it's either you have ADHD or you do not have ADHD. I know this because one of my professors is the chairman of the DSM which is the classification of mental disorders, and they combined ADD into ADHD because it seems as if though everyone that had ADD had some level of hyperactivity involved.

So yeah, it is ALWAYS ADHD now... You can even go check it up on wikipedia I think they updated their article on what was FORMERLY KNOWN as ADD.

Did I say otherwise? Attention deficit disorder is what Tsa called it and it is when your brain is running amuck. Attention deficit hyperactive disorder is the body trying to keep up. The mind is part of the body so it's one illness. I'm just saying what's going on. I'm not a med student or anything. It is always a bit of both correct. It's not as though someone who can't focus is going to sit in the corner unfocused, they stay busy jumping from one thing to the next in search of stimuli.

TSA
01-31-2011, 01:36 AM
I didn't know they combine the two, good to know, now my confusion will end.
it's sad too cause im a psych student.




anyone else have 'nervous habits' when they're thinking? I noticed to de-nappy my hair lol. I put my finger where 2 hairs combine and pull to break the connection. It looks like im just twisting my hair from a distance but everytime i read i start doing this.


if i try not to my attention will be so focused on not doing it that i can't concentrate on the reading effectively.





on another note, when i do focus it's very powerful, like i REALLY fucking focus. It's almost euphoric.

TSA
01-31-2011, 01:42 AM
Yup.

And when I drink coffee, I wanna talk a lot and I feel good. If I drink too much coffee, I start to argue with people, which is why I don't drink too often.
I just have euphoric levels of concentration. I know it's not healthy, but i become incredibly intelligent (not trying to toot my own horn though but whatever)


then when im normal my thoughts are like a swampy foggy clusterfuck that renders me totally fucking stupid and i lose everything.

I have literally caught myself walking in a circle because my thought process was


"i have to do laundry"
"I should start studying"
"I think i'll go on the computer for a minute before that"
"fuck ..laundry!"
"I should just study, i can do laundry whenever"
"I wonder if anyone i want to talk to is on facebook right now"


and i would head in the independent direction of every activity with each thought. It all also happened in a span of like no more then 3 seconds.




it also makes it very hard to have a good grasp of time when you're not looking at a clock because in the span of a minute you can have a day's worth of thoughts and in the span of an hour your brain and be totally blank or so busy that there's no recollection of a single thought because they all lasted less then a nanosecond, and its always at those two extremes




sometimes i get mentally exhausted for no reason and can recall what i actually used my brain to do

TSA
01-31-2011, 01:49 AM
also i dont know if it's just me but my thoughts when stimulated can become so powerful they 'take over'.

Like if im reading a book and i come across an interesting thought, 'discussing it' with myself, imagining myself in a scenario where im discussing it with someone or explaining it, and so forth and im sitting there moving my hands or lips and thinking out loud.


or i'll be writing a short story and become so involved in it that i get up from my seat and start talking out the rest of the story instead of writing it because writing is 'getting in the way' of me enjoying my own story LOL (like i can't write as fast as im thinking and it's annoying).
And it's better when not written cause i'll forget all my good ideas.


i'll have like a paragraph worth of writing 2 books worth of ideas in the span of 1 night.



OR if i learn something really captivating i get up from where ever i am and start pacing. I HATE it in class when i actually learn something interesting and have to sit through the gay shit. It kills, i usually take a bathroom break and walk around thinking about whatever it was until im over it.


I JUST DID IT RIGHT NOW!! LOL and i didn't even realize i did it.
I got so involved in pointing out these examples that too many examples were coming to head, so i got up and started pacing and thinking of more examples LOL i did 2 laps in my room then went in the mirror and touched what might be a pimple tomorrow morningbefore realizing i was doing this!

im not shitting you guys!

TSA
01-31-2011, 01:57 AM
I JUST DID IT AGAIN!
the best way to describe this is like your brain being of the verge of pissing it's self in the middle of writing something.

So you either rush everything so you can go take a piss or drop it and take your mental piss by walking around and picking apart the particular thought.


the worst is i can be stuck on something like this THEN have to go to work and think about some retard shit while i still have that 'i have to take a mental piss' feeling. All you can think about is pissing that piss, and when you do it feels so good that you don't want to do anything else.

or you're taking the mental piss and have to do something else at the same time. It's hard to sit there and focus on it cause you're pissing and it feels so good.


only the piss lasts days, even weeks sometimes, or even a minute.






then there's the traffic example i usually use. Imagine taking a test. Then imagine taking the test if your desk was in the middle of downtown traffic.


that's how it is for me.



so say im out my mind but i tell them nah...

i think i know what you mean TSA. usually when im alone taking a walk ill get so concentrated on a thought or just a daydream that i wont notice anything else. and if i get distracted i cant get back to the thought which makes me pissed.

hehe i had that "discussed with myself" for about 10hours when i couldnt sleep due to some substance. i told a story in my own head and the weird thing was that i "used" perfectly good formal english. it seemed normal at the time but i realized i did it afterwards just like you. got carried away so to say.
