The Best threads on ADD Forums..?

Is there a list of the best threads here on ADD Forums anywhere?

From what I've seen there are a lot of diamonds hidden in the archives.

I'd like to see a list of the must read posts for newbies, or anyone with ADHD for that matter.

First one that I think might qualify for a sticky post in the meds forum:
To those who take,borrow,ask for or buy stimulants that are not prescribed to them:
sarahsweets : http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=174292

The thread that gave me the idea: Does anyone really think they are a complete, helpless victim of ADD? (Multi-page thread 1 2 3 4 5 6) started by
My Life ADDs Up. It is here: http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12428

If this has already been done, my apologies... I haven't found it yet..

Re: The Best threads on ADD Forums..?

Some threads are made stickies. You can find them above the other thread on each board (though keep on mind that some stickies or rather the OP in some stickies, in my opinion at least, are complete rubbish).

I guess it's difficult to judge though what are quality threads and what aren't. It's too subjective. Some threads have been rated highly, which is shown by the number of stars next to the name of the thread but again that''s very subjective.the best might be to use the search function to look for threads that are of interest to you.

Re: The Best threads on ADD Forums..?

There's a part of the children with ADHD section called "Dizfriz's Corner". That part is a gold mine for all teachers and parents on the site. (Probably something to learn in there for those of us who are neither teachers nor parents, too.)

Re: The Best threads on ADD Forums..?

Here's a thread that I started a while back that was meant to do exactly what you are asking for:

http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=103820

It never really worked out perfectly but there are still quite a few amazing posts in it.

Some people star their own threads. It happens.

To the OP:
There's a whole lot of threads on here, and plenty of them are good. Hunting thru the archives can be awesome.

Re: The Best threads on ADD Forums..?

Further to what ginniebean said: I think "the best" - or even "great" or "must-read" - depends pretty strongly on personal preference. A lot of the time, I think what happens is a person is in desperate need of something (specific information, reassurance, assistance, or whatever it may be), and when they find exactly what they had been looking for, they can sort of feel as if they've "hit the jackpot" in finding the Best Thread Ever.

For them. On that day.

I think (if we were looking for them, which we're not) that there would be a pretty strong general consensus on "ADDF's Ten-Thousand Most Worthless Threads". But agreeing on the best ones is much more tricky and subjective.

Re: The Best threads on ADD Forums..?

I’m not so sure about threads, but for me, a post always has a chance to be great when someone speaks from their truest self, with neither pride nor shame, but with profound depth and vulnerability, and in so doing, shares their gifts and adds their voice to the chorus of the world.

In my experience, this is both rare and arrestingly beautiful.

They are the kind of posts I can read over and over again, and they are evergreen in their vitality and power to both ground me and dare me to dream.


Namaste,
Ian

Really???? I never thought of that.

I guess it's possible but it's just difficult to imagine anyone doing that.
