um, and ADD is still a real disorder. even if its overdiagnosed, those of us who actually have it and have to deal have a hard enough time without the six million people who say "oh, theres no way you actually have ADD" or "ADD isn't real" or whatever. also, you really can't diagnose a stranger over the internet, as disappointing as that may be for you.

Maybe he was just kidding around. I have similar diagnoses and when I open up to people about it occasional, sometimes they make a joke about it. That usually means they're just uncomfortable about the subject. Don't take it personally.

Why is this and FML? No jury duty, you've got it made. BTW, bipolar disorder is almost as wrongfully diagnosed as ADD, so I would bet the odds are 3 to 1 you don't have it

No. It's not true that if you SAY you have bipolar you get out of jury duty. If you actually HAVE bipolar, then you might get out of it, depending of the severity. Besides, you have to have proof. You can't just say you have bipolar and they'll believe you. They need proof from a doctor.

He's right and jury duty sucks. I'm glad I don't have to go any more. I lost a ton of money and couldn't pay my bills last time I got called up. The case lasted 2 weeks and we got $8 a day stipend. I live alone and make a lot more than $8 a day, and have the bills to go with it. $8 doesn't cover the parking....
