So attention is "paid"- but by whom or by what?
What on earth does anybody mean by all this?
I really do not know any more. Do any of you?
This "definitional laxity" is more than enough to explain the poor results in treating the problem.
ive started to think of it in me, if ADHD is a regulation disorder, that's it not the mind exclusively ,but the whole body

the attention not being paid is to my self in the way of introception

the body tells us how to regulate it right? I just don't pay mine no attention
