#20, It's a reference to how distractable someone with ADHD can be. Any conversation or activity can be derailed by anything that pops up as remotely interesting. Such as a squirrel outside the window. "Squirrel!" is a running in-joke.

61, I have ADHD as well. The jokes are funny, and you're being kind of butthurt about the whole thing. No one is sitting here directly insulting you because of your ADHD.

#61 You know what really should offend you? Some cheater trying to blame their bullshit on their ADHD. Do you want people assuming you would act that way, because you have ADHD?

#61 I have ADHD and I think it definitely has its opportunities for humor. Drawbacks, yes, but you gotta take it with a sense of humor. It's like being tall or short. You can get upset, or you can threaten... "Make one more short joke, and I swear to God I will come over there, jump really high, and bite your knees!" As long as it's not done in a deliberately insulting manner by someone who actually thinks it really is an insult, I'm fine with it. Deliberately insulting? That'll just piss me off. Otherwise, grow a thicker skin.

don't just accept all comments given to you just because if the sender 'didn't mean anything bad'. they need to learn that you can't joke or comment on every-fucking-thing ! I have a ton of stuff about myself that I joke about, and then there are things that I can't/won't/are not ready to joke about. If someone comments on the wrong thing, wether it be someones height, weight, nose, diagnosis, it can really hurt people!

My doctor explained my ADHD to my parents very simply. A child is standing behind a girl with a ponytail. His brain thinks to itself, "I wonder what would happen if I pulled her ponytail?" and before he can think anything like, 'it would hurt her,' or, 'I would get in trouble' he has already yanked on the ponytail and is now thinking, "I should NOT have done this. This was bad." I am in no way making excuses for her, but the basic theory lines up. Either way, it didn't just 'happen' I would guess and I would say that she probably led up to this with meetings or something.

By that definition it would not be ADHD but instead an impulsive/compulsive type disorder more like OCD...if that's how your Dr "simply" put it then your parents need to find a different Dr for you because the Dr "simply" doesn't know what they're talking about &/or knows your parents won't question such nonsense while continuing to waste money. Sorry #9, FYL.

That is way off. I have ADHD that is not exactly how it works. Quite opposite of that. And besides, pulling a ponytail and fucking someone are vastly different. I don't have to process that to know that its wrong.

I have ADHD and impulsivity can indeed be a symptom, but not everyone has it. Fortunately for me, I don't, but that particular symptom is much more common in boys than girls... and #9 is a boy.

"More common" in boys? My psych professors (yes, plural) stand on the premise that ADD is a purely male phenomenon, as massive multi-tasking is a female phenomenon.

32, that wouldn't be what OCD is like. OCD would be more like "I have to pull on this girl's ponytail or something terrible will happen." OCD compulsions are based around irrational fears, not curiosity.

Sounds like people who have this shouldn't inflict themselves on others. Makes me wonder how much of the high divorce rate is due to mentally defective people who ruin others then blame it on "I couldn't help it! I have the ADD/ADHD/Assburgers/whatever!"

I've been dealing with ADD for years and that is not how it is. It's more like you ask someone to do a task and they walk off only to come back an hour later with something else and not what you asked.

67, Well my neurologists (yes, plural) would disagree with your psych professors. Boys and girls can both have ADHD. And I can say with certainty that your psych professors are wrong, because I'm a female with ADHD. And I'm not sure you understand what ADHD is, because multitasking can also be a symptom of ADHD. It's an inability to focus on one thing. So a person with ADHD will start an hour long project, then 10 minutes in realize they have something else they need to do, start working on that instead, then see a book they wanted to read, start reading it, then get a little thirsty and make an elaborate smoothie, then remember what they were going to do in the first place, go back to that, and ten minutes later remember that second thing they started doing and do that instead. So ADHD is basically multitasking gone so awry that no one task can be finished. So to say that woman can't have ADHD because they multitask is a really stupid statement.
