  • Award winning documentary, ADD and Loving It, now airing on PBS stations. « Dr Hallowell ADHD and mental and cognitive health
    7 50 pm We just finished watching ADD and Loving It Curiously I just tried to copy the title from this web page and it didn t work I got it from another site rather than type it in what s up with that I have a mixed reaction to the whole ADD subject here s why I am pretty much a full blown ADHD kinda guy Had trouble grade school high school One of the brightest in school so they tell me but one of my HS teachers commented that she wondered if I d ever amount to anything I got lucky too much to write here but from 30 000 ft here goes With just a HS diploma I was made an engineer for a large company on the west coast taught HS for 3 years college for 1 and started up my own engineering company which is still doing well My history is peppered with these sort of intuitive breakthroughs and I did well as a result I love to take risks and that is good for an entrepreneur don t you see I also love other risks such as sky diving piloting planes racing cars c much to my wife s dismay In short life rewarded me for being well who and what I am Then a few years back I decided to go to school and get my Ph D something that I had always wanted to do but didn t have a chance earlier Very nearly a disaster I sooo missed the target when I imagined what returning to school was going to mean I realized early on that I had some sort of problem and mentioned it to my profs All I got was lectures about my study habits I was studying my brains out you know but not very effectively After 4 years just as I was deciding to drop out with frustration 3 5 GPA in Physics I decided one depressing afternoon to go to some professionals and see what they had to say Went to 3 in a matter of a few weeks because I wanted second opinions They all agreed that I am a classic ADHD person Now with all the successes that I recounted above I d like to say here that it wasn t all roses The problems all stemmed from the same sort of closed mindedness that I am seeing at school The message is Normal means that we are all the same and you don t fit the Normal profile so we don t feel comfortable around you This is especially true at school the very place where folks who advertise that their job is education should be well aware of different learning styles and be ready to help folks play to their strengths and address their weaknesses I don t see it AT ALL I m now back on track just graduated w B S in Physics and now will try to struggle through grad school As an engineer w a HS diploma recall I was given several awards for engineering excellence and achievement For exactly the same behavior I got slapped down at the U for not doing stuff the U way What a shock So that s my beef with the current ADD ADHD social environment I went from being highly successful to being a failure and I felt the rejection So the problem is not exactly that I am ADD it is that our society is ready to admit us in to normal circles I don t want to deny the down side of ADD As long as I was able to work and play in an environment that allowed me to play to my strengths I was very happy But this has been a struggle for my wife and at last we are gaining an understanding of why we see things so differently I m on the fence about meds at this point Over the next year or so I intend to give it a great deal of thought all the while trying to develop a set of tools that will permit me to succeed in school ling enough to get either a Masters or a Ph D The message in ADD and Loving It about how safe meds are is the down side of the program for me We are too quick in this culture to say that we want folks to fit in and we ve got just the med to help them do that I think that better understanding and compassion on behalf of others notably those in education would go a long way to minimizing the need for meds One of the big questions on my mind wrt meds is the creativity question I don t have any faith at this point that medical professionals know whether the meds actually affect creativity or not The difficulty in assessing that is not knowing what is missed For example in my first year at the U I solved a Gaussion charge distro problem using a math technique that isn t taught until grad school I didn t know what I had done and that was one of the times I got my hands slapped publicly no less for doing things differently Had I been on meds I would likely have been a better student Would I have had that flash of insight Would anyone know that I might have had I not been on meds Well there you have just a small part of the puzzle from my POV For my part I will do what I can to help others develop good coping mechanisms so that they can feel successful Can t help but think that we need more Mrs McKennas in the world NoW Mitcher99 says January 6 2011 at 2 42 pm If you don t have ADD you won t understand it I am getting tired of hearing parents of ADD children denying ADD
