    If it was not for the fact that the name of the site is monkeyfilte I would read it. [face_plain]

    Oh and did you bother to read that link.

    Common Myths, Misconceptions Addressed
    Attention Deficit, Hyperactivity Explored In Depth at STEP Forum


    It was not about how it was "trendy" but about common myths ie saying it's the new trendy thing that has just come about in the last century. Which if you would read the whole thing goes on to say it has been aroudn a lot longer.

    First point :- Where did I say it was made up ? I'm merely stating it's currently the popular disorder to claim to have.
    Second point :- You brought it up, not me.

    Obviously, otherwise I wouldn't have referenced it.

    Specific parts I'm refering to are :-

    "U.S. pop culture overdiagnoses the ADHD and then compounds the problem by overmedicating"

    then

    "I would argue that kids who have this problem have been around probably for centuries" <-- exactly, so why the sudden increase in apparent suffers ? Because it's popular to say you have it.

    then

    "Nowadays the disorder ? and its treatment ? are talked about so commonly that myths and controversies often cloud understanding"

    "U.S. pop culture overdiagnoses the ADHD and then compounds the problem by overmedicating"

    To a point I agree with you here. To a point. But if you would quote the whole thing it would also say. ;)

    There saying it has not become trendy and that it has been around for years and years nad years.

    "I would argue that kids who have this problem have been around probably for centuries" <-- exactly, so why the sudden increase in apparent suffers ? Because it's popular to say you have it.

    Yes meaning that it is really and has never ben trendy.



    "Nowadays the disorder ? and its treatment ? are talked about so commonly that myths and controversies often cloud understanding

    About how people get it. Or about how long it last's etc etc But let's quote the whole thing.

    There saying that mroe then just boys have ADHD and that girls also have ADHD. They are also saying that foods are not the cause of ADHD.


    You know I might just quote the whole thing and even save the link. Because again the whole thing was about:

    Common Myths, Misconceptions Addressed
    Attention Deficit, Hyperactivity Explored In Depth at STEP Forum


    Not: How ADHD is "Trendy"

    Oh what the heck here's more

    Yup I agree with that 100% though I have ADD not ADHD.

    I would have to look into it more here.

    Yup I find that sometimes happens to me.

    I would not know about this one I'm not married.

    Yes I have dyslexia.

    Can we AT LEAST hate Scientology for giving us Battlefield Earth? That's GOTTA be a crime.

    I liked Battlefield Earth, it gave me the best chance to mock a movie while it played.

    In theory the concept was interesting. But it was stupid in several ways: Nukes blowing up a planet, mankind for slave labor (dogs would've been a better pick), and John Travolta's overacting. Oh the horridness! He was that way in Face/Off too. As was Nick Cage.

    Yes I believe we can. But like FID it gives people a chance to mock a movie, and how many chances can we get to do something like that. :) :D

    Could always go with "attack the belief, not the believers."

    I read a paragraph of one of Hubbard's books, and the writing seemed pretty damn atrocious; simple sentences and bad grammar. The covers are also extremely tacky. It wouldn't be quite so bad if the Arts and Humanities wing of my college didn't have framed cover art of L. Ron Hubbard's novels throughout.

    I was not able to view the image as it is very unclear not blurring but seems to have parts of the typing missing. Perhaps you could sum it up for me?

    From what I could tell, it was L. Ron Hubbard asking Veteran's Affairs for an examination by a psychiatrist.

    And it was written in his typical fashion (by that I mean it is boring).

    I guess it was just a Fad...mostly just ridiculed at this point in time.
