Re: ADHD; They can take their H and Shove it..

Having depression was horrible. I still have anxiety, but I feel I can deal with it with medication and support. But when I had depression and I all though about was suicide... there was no going around that.

Re: ADHD; They can take their H and Shove it..

Never really thought about it until you mentioned it but you definately make a good point.

When I write it out, I always put AD(H)D. I really do feel for you guys because I always said that the hyper group gets the attention and treatment better and easier then the ADD types.

Being diagnosed at age 6 as severe AD(H)D, I was always thankful because a professional could spend 5 minutes with me as a kid and without a doubt know for sure there was definately something wrong with me.

I read so many posts on this forum where people can't get treatment, can't get validation, and I never thought I would say this, but I feel fortunate that I was so hyper becuase it helped to get me diagnosed and treated.

Re: ADHD; They can take their H and Shove it..

In my opinion, it should be:

ADD-PH
ADD-PI
ADD-C

Wouldn't that just make it so much more simple?

I also want to add that the reason I think it should be this way is because ADHD is "always" a deficit of attention. The only thing that makes us all different is the way that we respond to the same set of problems.

When some people lose focus, they simply lose focus and zone out. When other people lose focus, they jump to another task.

So it's the same problem, just with different reactions.

Re: ADHD; They can take their H and Shove it..

I always have a sneaky suspicion these conversations are all about "I don't want to be associated with the stigmatized kind of adhd."

There are so many people here who self diagnose themselves as "PI" and yet spend a lot of time discussing their hyperactive and impulsive symptoms that somehow get turned around as something called inattention.

"I'm inattentive but I can't sit still"

I'm inattentive but I shop impulsively

I'm inattentive ... so I don't ever look at the other symptoms that screw up my life.

"they get all the attention (stigma)"

I don't want to be like them, so please tell me about my uniqueness please.

I can't find it.. those *******s don't care about us!!!
and on and on and on it goes..

The PI section here discusses lots of impulsive and hyperactive symptoms and still.. no recognition that they actually are hyperactive and impulsive symptoms.

amazing...

Re: ADHD; They can take their H and Shove it..

ginniebean, you're missing the point.

The point is that hyperactivity/impulsivity is a direct result of inattentiveness.

In other words, everybody is "combined" to some degree. It's just that some people naturally cope better with the hyperactivity/impulsivity better than others, despite suffering the same symptoms of inattention.

Hyperactivity and impulsivity are not "symptoms" as far as i'm concerned. They are a "result" of inattention. But not everybody responds to inattention in the same way, therefore many people don't show any obvious signs of hyperactivity or impulsivity.

NO, they are not. These are three very distinct symptoms. Yes, some people like to say they are all a result of inattivness because it helps fit their own theorizing better but you can impulsivity nd normal attiention span and you can have hyperactivity and normal attention span,

In psychiatry these symptoms are not found just in adhd. They are distinct.

I disagree.

A person with ADHD can be "predominantly" hyperactive, but symptoms of inattention are still there.

You said yourself that those suffering from predominantly inattentive symptoms, all show some symptoms of hyperactivity/impulsivity. So surely the same rule would apply vice versa?

The hyperactivity from ADHD, isn't like the same kind of hyperactivity you would get from some sugar rush. It's something quite different. And is a result of a lowered attention span.

Re: ADHD; They can take their H and Shove it..

I think you misunderstood Ginniebean's point.

A thing to keep in mind is that the majority of people with ADHD are combined type, or are diagnosable with PI-type but have 3-5 hyperactive/impulsive symptoms. I do not think there are many people who have 6+ inattentive symptoms and zero H/I symptoms.

PH type is basically a unicorn in terms of rarity. That is, they basically don't exist.

This is the same thing as telling a depressed person that everybody has problems and gets down sometimes, they should just "pick up their chin and grin and say (the sun while come out tomorrow, tomorrow.....)" (sorry annie reference.)

no problem if this is your theory

but current accepted theories are exactly the opposite

inattention is a result of impulsiveness (self regulation)
