May 23, 2017 - 10:33 PM - by mildadhd
Can someone PLEASE explain how adoption twin studies, rule out obvious prenatal and postnatal distresses of the adoptions, as partial determining factors, used by researchers to explain ADHD as solely genetic?

I am BEGGING someone to explain how obvious adoption distresses are ruled out?

Please ask your doctors, your favourite AD(H)D researchers, genetic researchers or anyone else that might know?

Hi. Just chatted with my primary physician and it was recommended that I talk to a psychiatrist. Deep down I know my chronic procrastination will delay that for a while, so I was hoping to post here to see if I have a real problem or if it's in my head.

Here are some facts about me, not all necessarily tied to ADD:
  • Always struggled just to be average in school
  • Had to have one on one tutoring as a kid

To be more specific - do I have Inattentive ADHD?

Hi,
The following helps me focus, and I just wanted to know whether the following helps other people and whether there is any evidence for it (I am mainly Predominantly Hyperactive/Impulsive)

- large amounts of stress - taking on lots of work.
- leaving things to the last minute
- working till I am exhausted - At work I produce far more after hours than during normal work time. The more tired I am the more productive I am in thinking work
- physical... [Read More]
