look up any word, like blumpkin:
A disease magically discovered when teachers were forced to get more involved in the educations of their students due to the demands of parents and the government. Suddenly the educational staff discovered that some students hate school and don't want to learn and will slack off, day dream, and act out to avoid the classroom. Discipline did not work. So what did they decide?
"Oh, let's just drug them all and make them listen."
Billy acted out in class and didn't do his homework, so his teacher said he had ADHD.
His parents put him on Ritalin a few days later.

2. An excuse for students not to do their homework.
3. An excuse for teachers to give up on their students.
4.An over-publicized and over-criticized disease
Intelligent person with ADHD: "Hey Doc, as much as I try to concentrate, I just can't."
Intelligent Doctor: "Well John, we will run a few tests to make sure, and if you do I will prescribe to medication which will enable you to concentrate."
Father: "Chris, do your homework"
Lazy Student: "I can't. I have ADHD."
Teacher:"Lexi, spell, candy."
Lexi: *thinks thoughtfully* "C-A-N...OMIGOD! Is that bird getting killed by a cat?

A mental disorder, common in children, that only affects 10% of kids who claim to have it. It causes hyperactivity and a low attemtion span. I hate ADHD. Im socially awkward because of it and have almost no friends. Im ridiculed in school, and labeled as a "retard" and "idiot" even though i have a genius level IQ. No, i dont take ritalin, im not a stoner, and i have feelings. ADHD is also referred to as "ADD". It is the basis of many stereotypes.
1. Hey, he has ADHD, he must be an idiot!
2. Its not my fault that i have ADHD.

3. "cool kid": hey guys, i have ADHD! He (guy who actually has ADHD) is a RETARD!

A gift, not a curse. Most people with ADHD believe that they need to take adderall/vyvanse/ritalin etc. to be "normal". People with ADHD are usually more creative, exciting, fun to be around, wise (but usually impulsive), original, and see the world in a different way than most people. It is normally a nightmare to parents, but a wonderful thing to kids/teens that can appreciate it and not only focus on the fact that school is more difficult with it.

Source: Someone diagnosed with ADHD and who is often around many other people diagnosed with ADHD as well.
Person 1: Man I hate having ADHD. School is so hard and i cant remember shit. Good thing ive got adderall to make me normal.

Person 2: Instead of whining about how your ADHD makes life so hard, how about enjoying it and making the most of it.
