I had ADHD bad growing up.
Got on meds after college, which helped a ton.
On them for 11 years, now off for 1 year.
I'm glad I'm off them.
Life is in a better place now.
If kids need this, get it to them.
Trust me, life was horrible in school for me.


I'm terribly worried about a generation whose response to everything is "Take some medication". It terrifies me whan I tell a teacher that my teenager is dpressed and the teacher demands I take him to a doctor and get him on meds. Why are drugs our answer to everything in the 21rst century? Is humanity's futre a drugged out existence ala Aldous Huxley?
