Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder?
Having to deal with a disorder is one thing, but then having to deal with society's response just adds more steamed spoilage to the already rotten road-kill.
......... ........... ............
So we realize that something is amiss within ourselves or our family or teachers abserves it first. So we go get tested and pay anywhere from $500 - $1,200 for the assessment. Its a brutal ordeal to have to sit through the splendor of testing visuals in order to be officially classified as having ADHD. I dont get it - we claim we have ADHD but then the doctors expect us to somehow sit still through these tests that last two days, 5 - 8 hours each. If we could do that, then we wouldnt be concerned with having the disorder, eh? So the test results are positive for ADHD and the severity is ranged on a scale from mild to severe. A therapeutic path is formulated by the doctors, be it tutors in school, medications, extra time alloted on tests, note-takers, counseling, time management seminars, and/or family counseling, etc.
............ ............ ..............
So we inform our families, friends, loved ones, supervisors and school personnel. Our families either over-exhaggerate and baby us or develop hostilities because they think we are pittying ourselves and looking for empathy and accwpting weakness. Our friends tease us and/or treat us differently (in a negative way). Our loved ones respect us less because now we are regarded as high-maintenance and bothersome or weak. Our supervisors refrain from giving us extra responsibility or promotions and blame us for any ongoing team conflicts. School officials appear paranoid and are overly concerned about our behaviors enough to consistantly contact our teachers to ask how we are doing (which raises bright red flags in the teachers eyes and may influence how they treat us and grade us), as well as create a large green and black radar screen to monitor our coordinates on campus.
........... ............. ..............
We did the right thing for ourselves to go get tested for he disorder so that if we have it, we can come full-circle with it in order to better our chances of success, whether in the workplace, home or school/college, right?? Everyone seemed so caring and understanding when they sensed amiss. They seemed supportive when we took it upon ourselves to come face to face with our challenges. But when we found out that we did have the disorder, everything changed for he worse. We became labeled as a lesser person, a potential trouble-maker, and limiting.
............ ........... .............
We find that society has a difficult time placing us with them. Instead, we are different and subject to harsh treatments, vindictive to our vulneralbilities. Hands to face, eyes peering through spread fingers, what in the world did we just do? We thought coming full-circle with our challenges was a step forward to better ourselves. But rather, we find ourselves ostracized and cut-off, like a red-headed step-child orphan.
............ ............ ............
We are similar to the classifieds. Now-a-days, nobody trains anybody. In order to find a job, you must have experience. Likewise, nobody accepts invisible differences (ADHD, LD, and even Transgender). In order to fit in and belong, you need to be like them or at least similar. If you have a disability, the challenged must be observed (blindness, deafness, physical, dyslexia, etc..) and not be challenging to society (not related to mis-behavior). With the case of ADHD, the disorder spells out trouble: spontaneous behaviors, tempers and action before thoughts, hyper-activity during events that require calmness and focus, forgetfulness, difficulty in establishing and maintaining relationships, compulsive behaviors, trouble with the law, etc.

I wish someone would have written something like this 10 years ago. I never would have went to get that test done. I never would have told anyone that I have ADHD.

I really like the general message you are presenting. When you hand over authority of yourself or your child to a system, it will, in the end institutionalize you or your loved one. The system will take a rambunctious child and Label them Medicate Now. Hyperactivity is simplistically a lack of one essential nutrient. Omega 3 oils. Essential oils are the bulls-eye. Wiki the truth...
Here is what I have:
This is a Natural Prescription for an easy way to transition off of and more importantly AVOID the need for - Hyper activity/ADD, ADHD, Bipolar and Schizophrenia Medications.
Getting off of and avoiding the need for Serotonin uptake inhibitor drugs,
Is easier than most people realize.
#1.) Drink 1 GALLON of DISTILLED WATER a day. Distilled Water is PH balanced with zero additives, (Pure H2o). Dehydration must be avoided. Fluidity is number one.
Note: (Tap water and bottled water contain varying amounts of highly questionable substances like fluoride, chlorine, metals at varying amounts, fungus, bad bacteria / microbes and numerous other elements not beneficial to an organism.
#2.) Consume the Amino Acid TRYPTOPHAN on an empty stomach and in between meals. Tryptophan is the precursor to Serotonin. Supplying the body with ample supplies of Tryptophan / Serotonin is imperative.
You can buy Tryptophan from any local GNC, health food store, and even a Safeway.
Tryptophan is an isolated protein Amino Acid.
#3) & #4) (Essential fatty acids) this is the heart and meat of the matter. Essential fatty acids are only obtained through consumption. ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS are not made in the body. The only way you get them in your body is from eating them. Parents should NOT be ashamed for not knowing. Information about this subject is not given freely from the system. There isn't good enough money in doing so.
When the Hyper active/ADD, ADHD, Bipolar or Schizophrenic person reflects back on the food stuffs that were primarily available and what they consumed, leading up to them being medicated. How much if any quantities of these next two substances were consumed regularly each month?
#3) Consuming Omega 3 Oil, also known as Fish Oil, It is a polyunsaturated fat, essential fatty acid. It breaks down saturated fat. Omega 3 oil is highly conductive, and is considered a precursor to brain fluid. Saturated fat has little to no electric conductivity. Fish oil modifies the saturated fat to un-saturated fat ratio making the brain exceedingly electric. (Synapses - neuron to neuron communication) Creating a fluidly without resistance or blockage. (Example) No, traffic jams with detours. Feelings of short circuiting, overworked, overheated brain are typical signs of low Omega 3.
#4) Consuming Evening Primrose Oil, It is also a polyunsaturated fat, essential fatty acid. It also breaks down Saturated fat. It doesn’t have as many hoops and hurdles to get to where it needs to go. Making it extremely vital to rehabilitation.
Don't start, but if your already hooked. Respect, and repair yourself now, before you become further enslaved to their pills. One day the pills might not be there. Where would you be? How would you cope? Fix Yourself Now....
