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.

A mental disorder that is poorly understood by many. Contrary to popular belief, people with adhd aren't retarded. They just don't learn like most other people do. This, in turn, pisses off the faculty at school, and they make everyone around you aware of of your disorder, and since your non adhd classmates don't understand your disorder either, you'll be labeled as different, guaranteeing that you'll be made fun of multiple times. Despite this, adhd people tend to be more intelligent than those who do well in public schools. They don't pay attention in class because guess what stupid teachers? Your class is useless to them and boring as shit, not because they suck at learning. Most kids with adhd are highly creative. After the hell they endure at school, they usually go on to be successful at life and never look back. Famous examples of these people: Albert Einstein, Jim carrey, Pete rose (baseball legend), will smith, Michael phelps (Olympic gold medalist swimmer), robin Williams (RIP), Walt Disney, and way too many people to list have adhd and go on to do incredible things.
Teacher at school: WHAT?!?! Your son has ADHD?!?! Oh, we can help him.

Teacher in class: ...and that's why 5,552X is parallel with 9,467Y. (Half the class is asleep) hey...uh... Kid with adhd! Solve the next problem! What is 3,758Y equivalent to?

Student with adhd: uh...I... I honestly don't know, mrs. Richards.

Teacher: are you that stupid?! We went over this yesterday! Twice! You should be paying attention like everyone else is! (Even though no one actually is) do this 10 page packet so I don't have to fail you! *whole class laughs at him*

Kid with adhd in 20 years: I love living in Hawaii! I'm so glad that people outside of school appreciated my creativity! Now I can rest easy knowing I found the cure for cancer!

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.
