Interests and hobbies before meds [complicated].
May 26, 2017 - 5:08 PM - by mrh235
I was just thinking about how I was like before I had my ADHD treated. I was basically completely impulsive and scatter-brained about my interests, one minute I'd be interested in one thing, next - the exact opposite, so pretty much anything I was interested in ended up getting dropped because I'd just rapidly loose interest in it >.

It was that for almost... [Read More]

Does it bother you when you meet people or friends with ADHD and they seem so normal?

I feel like some days I could be... [Read More]

ADD and LEARNING
May 24, 2017 - 7:26 AM - by Smoking Gun
Rote learning is an inferior method, and every intelligent person knows it. Every intelligent person realises just how little can be learned by rote.

When one shifts from rote learning to understanding material, one is enlightened in such a way that it feels as though they have been changed for life. If one is intelligent, one is able to learn by logic and abstraction. Rote learning can be akin to being half-dead. What rote learning does to a person, when they are stuck in it, is... [Read More]
