ADD means attention deficit disorder it really sucks... even though it is kinda fun yelling stuff out randomly when i don't take my meds... well anywho it pretty much is where you cannot focus on tasks and really would rather draw on everything or whatever than listen to a teacher talk about random school crap i would know the teacher VIDEO TAPED me in second grade saying i was messed up and never payed attention to her then i got sent to a psyciatrist who thought i was like 3 when i was like 7 and then got sent to the psyco docter i have now who says if i ever look like a goth he'll kick me out hes like crazy and he keeps trying to get me entirely off ADD meds because he said it should be gone by now but isnt and on my medicine file in the nurses office at school it says adhd but i don't and now i'm rambling and in conclusin when you have add you have to take a shitload of medicine and all my friends with ADD don't need medicine anymore but i still do oh and i guess if you have it when youre little its supposed to go away eventually but mines not and its not just people trying to get attension theres people (like me) with a serious problem with focusing i almost failed second grade because i was always distracted!!!!!! so those who just say oh i have add when you don't thats making fun of the people who really have add and i would just tell off everyone around me who does that but the crazy doctor gave me all this medicine and it totally destroys my personality and makes me unhappy and boring and i never talk it SUCKS to have ADD you don't want it so don't joke about having it and the medicine keeps you up all night
