Is parenting to blame for ADHD? Finally a clear and hard NO
Nov 19, 2017 - 7:11 PM - by Kunga Dorji
We have always been told that ADHD was due to bad parenting, and then the scoffers have usually denied the existence of the condition.

The following podcast is well worth listening to. The speaker has an enormous amount of experience in the field.

Are men not allowed to think about sex anymore?
Nov 19, 2017 - 1:52 PM - by Fraser_0762
Society (or societies female population) deems it wrong for men to hold any sexual related thoughts at all. Or that's been my own experience at least. One of the first things I get asked by women is if I ever have sex on the mind. So me being the outstanding honest chap that I am, I give them a straight and honest answer, which results either in abuse or an instant shut out.

Women say they like honest men. Do they secretly prefer men that lie? ... [Read More]

My youngest daughter (age 14) is so hard on herself and I dont know why.
Nov 19, 2017 - 7:57 AM - by sarahsweets
She is the baby, my baby. She is the only child of mine that had me home her whole life. I know I babied her too much.

Yes, the last couple of years of my alcoholism was rough for the whole family but... [Read More]

ADD and Trauma
Nov 17, 2017 - 2:40 PM - by allesandro1
I recently had an incident with my boss at work because of my ADD blunders and found myself becoming inordinately upset about what might be considered a relatively minor incident. I discussed it with a friend, who is also a therapist who suggested it might be due to trauma associated with ADD. As we went through my history of negative experiences associated with ADD in both the workplace and at school, the pain just reverberated throughout my body. My stomach felt like it was a ship being... [Read More]

I need advice on how to proceed. Also I wrote a personal story.
Nov 17, 2017 - 1:09 PM - by MilosM
Wall of text ahead, proceed with caution!
There is a lot of text here which might not be necessary to make a decision but I explained everything in detail because I think it is a good example of ADHD in action. I tried to make it as readable as possible but since English is not my native language I can't promise that it is. I am also heavily impaired, so if I don't finish and post this text now, I will probably forget about it later and won't post it at all. So I have to rush it... [Read More]
