Hello, I am from Point Pleasant, WV and I have two children that are diagnosed ADHD. I was never diagnosed but feel that after much research on the subject that I probably am ADHD myself.

Alliee, you were right. We are from the same area, well close enough any way.

Since I go to WVU I live in Morgantown, but my real home is in Vienna WV. It's a suburb of Parkersburg.

I love everything but the hills. Those things have been murder on my legs. I think Motown is the place where it is possible to go uphill both to and from class.

That is true. The hills are crazy. Sooo pretty though. I remember the fb group all my friends were in "I got 99 problems and 87 of them are the steps in front of the life sciences building." High Street is also pretty notorious.
Sure you noticed that I just bombarded the forum with wv threads. haha, just trying to update the info for this place!

That's the greatest thing I've ever heard. I think I'm making that my new motto.

I do every day. There's a reason I've lost twenty pounds since I came to this school and god knows it's not my eating habits. It's all the walking and the hills. I never thought my sweetest dreams would be about cars but now they are. Cars and not having to pay for laundry.

I will say that the sledding is amazing around here though.

hahaha great! I tried to look up the exact amount of steps but I couldn't find it. might be 90 something actually. But I'm sure you could just count them next time you have to walk up them! :) That's really crazy about the 20 lbs, though. haha, I'm sure it's not the eating habits. D.P. Dough and Mountain Layer along with a gallon of beer are not condusive to this, as proven by the guys I went to high school with.

hahaha great! I tried to look up the exact amount of steps but I couldn't.. it might be 87 actually! But I'm sure you could just count them tomorrow or something. That's really good about the 20 lbs. haha, I'm sure it's not the eating habits. D.P.

You should see Sandwich U. That place specializes in food that will kill you. All their sandwiches come with things like chicken tenders, poppers, mozzarella sticks, french fries, and onion rings on the actual sub. I thought about getting one just to say I had one, but I felt like I was robbing a stoner of their dinner.

And according to the little map booklet I got there are 87 stairs. I've actually taken the bus before just to avoid those stairs in the winter. Those things are deadly when they're icy.

Hey, I'm from South Carolina! I was born in Myrtle Beach to be exact, but I lived a couple of years in Charleston SC too. Myrtle beach has the greatest mini-golf in America. I moved to WV when I was 8.

I knew you were joking. :D I meant to put a smiley face in there but I forgot to.

yikes, haha I can see why you felt that way about Sandwhich U. I'd never heard of it but looked up the menu. That's the type of drunk food that only sober people could manage to put together. The fat mojo sounds like the worst! I'd also be interested to know who would go there and get the double veggie burger. I'll admit I am kind of hungry now, though. haha, i'll take the chicken finger sandwhich, thanks!

I'm new here, live in Huntington. Finding treatment has proved to be incredibly difficult- so much addiction in the area makes providers afraid to prescribe stimulants. I've been stable on the same meds for many years, moved here from Seattle for a job. Every single month it's like pulling teeth to get my prescription. Last month my doctor fired me because I was causing such a stink with the front office. Argh! I never knew places like this existed.
