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

ADD
ADD stands for Attention Deficit Disorder. It is characterized by having difficulty focusing on one specific task. Instead, the afflicted is paying attention to multiple activities as opposed to one.
(For more information, go to: nami.org or mayoclinic.com.)
Billy can't focus on the teacher's lecture, and is instead watching the clouds, listening to the girl next to him blow bubbles with her gum, and imagining the sky purple. This is because he has ADD.

ADD
A mental disorder affecting many Americans. Symptoms include: becoming easily distracted, problems keeping focus in conversations, blurting out, frequent careless mistakes, avoiding tasks that require sustained mental effort (homework, studying, etc), giving effortless and undivided attention to topics the subject enjoys.

Many critics to the ADD diagnosis say patients are lazy, dumb, bored, and helpless. These people are idiots that fail to realized diversity in our population. They believe that because they can concentrate on tasks that need to be accomplished, everyone else can/should too. They say that people with ADD are lazy and no one likes doing boring daily tasks. They are right in that no one likes doing them, they are wrong in that some people simply can not focus enough to do so.

Everyone has problems. Whether it be mental, physical, etc. Saying a person with ADD is looking for an excuse is like saying a person with an handicap only has one for the sweet parking spot. I will admit, many people take ADD medication for the 'high' they receive, and this is wrong. But MANY drugs are abused, and people that truely have ADD shouldn't be punished. More understanding should be given to people that have been DIAGNOSED with ADD.
Ahhhhh crap, I really have ADD and can't focus on a day-to-day basis without my medicine. I have good days and bad days, but with my medicine I have continued focus. Thank you to whoever created this medicine that allows me to function on a 'normal' level daily.
