Lightbulb Weeelllll......... archiving, table contents

I love the forums and find lots of helpful information but I would like to see the posts archived. It doesn't seem as if they are. I will post to something from two years ago. It would also be nice to have a list of all the forums. Like a list of all the forums so you wouldn't have to scroll thru everything. Site map.. or something such.

Did that make sense?

After all these post and the information people know I am afraid to post. Before I was member of the site, I would look at the site and became overwhelmed. I didnt know where to go.

Now, I am here and am a member, I know I have made mistakes in the forum, I didn't know that I was suppose to read certain post before I started posting . I just think it was all overwhelming. I now understand some of it a little better, but for me I am scared that I will get taken off the site or do something wrong.

I really think it is me cause since I have been here no one has said anything mean. Like alot you I think this place is a great place it is just hard for me to get use to. Sorry, You asked for my honest opinion. Sorry if I wrote too much auntchris

The question says "ADD Forums"

Is there more than one?


Hyperfocused on this forum? Who me? Geesh, yah way!

Well, everything is NOT going to be OK unless you learn to handle whatever comes your way.

Actually, each section of the ADD Forums is technically considered a "forum" We have sub forums for loads of interests here...all together, referred to as the ADD Forums

I Like the LACK of annoying pop up ads. Many sites either charge money or subject me to flashing ads that I find distracting!!!

You just haven't read any of my posts yet. My son is medicated but we treat my daughter and myself with therapy, yoga, excercise and behaioural modification programs. Sometimes, you just have to look deep into posts. Hang in there, there are a ton of options in treating ADD successfully.

Hugs,
Cherity

This forum is pro-education and pro-support of its members and the various treatments they seek out. We encourage positive reinforcement in our forums, and have guidelines that discourage some of the negative messaging and personal slights that some members occassionally post.

I think I could come up with some links to helpful information and will forward them to you on other forms of therapy if that would be helpful?

You've seen the forum on alternative treatments, right? I've run into a wide array of people here....some on meds, some not....I don't feel there's any opinion whatsoever in terms of management that speaks to being pro-med. Just haven't seen that at all. Check out some of the other sections......

I have to ADD something here!! One of the reasons I stay here is because there IS no opinion being forced down my throat as to how best to deal with it. We don't even have ads floating on our pages that encourage us to buy various crap. If you spend all your time in the med sections, you rob yourself of all the other information and discussion. But it's here. You just have to take advantage of it....

I think we got the pro-med thing ironed out-----> good job "waywardclam" and others who had information on non-medical issues. I am on meds but think it is a personal choice!!

If no one minds can we go back to the debate thing---> I guess I am intersted in some thing like this as well. I guess it is my ADD extreem talking. I don't want any thing to do with name calling as I believe name calling has no place in debates (exception idiotic bosses?? OPpps I am the boss better not go there) I believe the difference between debate and discussion is the TONE. I mean I can go through a thread and people see things differently. However there is a differentce in intencity. Different perpectives are written in one tone where debate becomes stronger more passionate. I also believe in the pass word guile line idea so some new memebers who may be at a vulnerable part in life seeking help don't accidently stumble onto some of the more heated discussions. There will be those who are not interested, that is cool. New people who are vulnerible and those not desiring a strong worded format should not have to "be invaded" by a passionate debate.

I am a person of strong opnion in some areas. I don't mind a good intelligent challange, as a matter of fact I welcome it. The only way to work a muscle in the body is to work it out I feel my beliefs/prespectives are the same. A debate sub-forum would have to be set up in such as way that one knows where they are going and what to expect!!!! So put me down as a yes very interested!!!!
