    I just loved this part of the article at .
    If that doesn't work and you're dealing with someone who is strongly denying that ADD exists and claiming that ADD is a not real condition, thereby stigmatizing those with ADD and preventing other people who may have undiagnosed ADD from seeking treatment, you might consider asking them this question,What do you know about ADD that the following institutions don't?
    American Medical Association (AMA)
    Canadian Medical Association
    Canadian Psychological Association
    Canadian Psychiatric Association
    Surgeon General of the United States
    National Institutes of Health (NIH)
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
    American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)
    American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP)

    He's my kinda guy.:D

    Well if it DOESN'T exist, I have three big problems living with me that defy explanation!

    :laugh: Don't you know by now that kids will be kids and this is all normal behavior? We just make up these things to look important. :laugh:

    Yeah, if it doesn't exist, I'll send you my child non medicated and let you have fun for a week. My guess is you won't last 2 days!

    I say we dump all the kids on all the naysayers. :)

    Just let them spend a few days with me in my office when I'm under tight deadlines and don't have time to manage my symptoms. They'd believe

    They can visit at my house...but first, let me get Miss KT back from my mother's, and then have both her and Hubby unmedicated. Whee Yippee! Shall I suggest they bring helmets and flak jackets?
