Finding Richard at WordPress.com

Which way did he go? Where has he been? Where is he headed? So many questions . . ..

“ADD is a FICTITIOUS Disease Said its Inventor Before His Death”

This one is P. A. I. N.

Has me on the hot seat again — four years after my diagnosis.

This has been blasted all over the Internet, and my work is back to treating me like ADD “really isn’t a thing.”

According to Snopes, this statement is only partially true and rests solely on a statement – taken out of context – translated from a German magazine article by digital translation software. (ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.”)

Actually, what he was saying was that many of the children prescribed Ritalin and other stimulant-based ADD meds don’t, in fact, have abnormal dopamine metabolism — which makes those prescriptions inappropriate for them.

Whatever.

Just need to make it two more years . . .
