I had to take adhd pills for 3 years because my 3rd grade teacher thought it would help with my studies (lol nope). Those pills stunted my growth and made me very skinny and more hyper (the pills are basically speed). Not even a month after I got off the pills I hit a 5 inch growth spurt and gained 30lbs. **** those pills.

Can we stop with the murica **** . No one says murica in murica. Britain is a police state at this point

Yes. Holy ******* **** it's actually ridiculous how many little kids are on drugs just because they didn't want to go to bed or something stupid like that.

Thanks to our gov't obsession with 'Psychiatric Culture' and their corrupt ties to Pharma Companies, a majority/plurality of our kids are on psychiatric drugs.

Yeah. It's... unreal.

US people has an insane obsession with being "normal". They do boring things, live boring lives, marry boring people and have boring hobbies, just because that's the normal thing to do. Then marriage ends, they divorce, lose their money, lose their jobs, lose their will to live and kill themselves. And they teach their children the same. But if you are any different, they put you on drugs, so you can "adapt to society and have a normal life". Well, news, fellows, some people just don't want a normal life, but they ever have a chance to be themselves for the demon of Ritalin.

And, the saddest part is they admire people who isn't normal at all, like GRRMartin, Steve Jobs, Sheldon Cooper, but they never do anything to be like them, because they want a normal life.

its actually pretty sad, they medicated me with that, its like your mind gets burned and is only able to do some little things, my dad saw that they where bad for me and took them away, until this day they still say it was an error.
Regarding to your question, yes it is that common

that's the issue
people don't ever want to try and realize that their issues aren't as big as they seem or at least try to help themselves so they just look for the quick route out and go onto medication for almost everything and don't care for side effects.

It's becoming more common really. They're telling us to stop disciplining our kids in any way shape or form and just put them on drugs.
#92 to #42 - dontknowmeatall (07/17/2013) [-]
And then they grow up and become pot addicts and crack addicts and everyone is surprised and worried because nobody knows why did they decide to start on drugs instead of talking about their issues.

Not saying all of them, but a big number.

Yeah, and just to put out here, I'm not for just slapping around your children. Even if you don't agree with spanking them, put them in time-out, ground them, publicly humiliate them, anything within reason to instill some morals into them.

It's the reason that I don't want my future children in this ********* of a country. The economy is in the ******* , our politics are corrupt, and our methods schooling are asinine and wrong. I'm going to Canada once I finish College (unless I can find a good one that is actually in Canada, I am open to suggestions)
#134 to #95 - herpderpherpity (07/17/2013) [-]

User avatar #163 to #134 - theavatarspupil (07/17/2013) [-]
At a minimum, a Bachelor's degree. Haven't decided my field yet...
#177 to #163 - herpderpherpity (07/18/2013) [-]

It's more than fair to say.

I say it is.

I wouldn't feel bad. Yes it makes me feel ****** , but it helped my get into a very nice, and free, boarding high-school in my state. I'm a physics TA and in a few bands, so I guess I turned out all-right. I've really got the ADD something fierce. The thing that bothers me is people using it as a crutch when their kids are just stupid.

If you think that academic or professional "success" worths depression, then you're not all-right at all. You gave up happiness for money. You lost your will, and your life doesn't make any sense. ADD is not a disease, is a genetic characteristic as especial as being tall or having long fingers. It has its disadvantages, but you can use it for your own benefit if you try. Getting high to suppress your nature is a really terrible thing to do to yourself.

Actually, it's not depression, per-say. It just makes me feel in a very "bored of everything" kinda mood. But with that little bit of ********** , i'm not at a school where I have a ton of good friends, getting to play, write, and record music (my favorite thing in the world) and I'm well on my way to study in advanced physics. Honestly, I'm glad I had a little somthin to help me. I take low dosages any way.

The problem is that ADD/ADHD is really hard to diagnose correctly, so most people will just shove drugs down kid's throats if they have symptoms. Thus leading to 90% of children "having" ADD/ADHD. I probably would've been diagnosed with ADD if I was tested, and then I turned out fine. This comment is completely ******* pointless, I just wanted to feel like I was contributing to something.
#159 to #96 - deansmachine (07/17/2013) [-]
No man, it makes sense. I was tested quite a few times and it was always a positive. What this post is criticizing is parents just jumping to ridalin as a "plan A"

My parents were all for it, but I think I may actually need it (just for school work) it's actually super helpful in that aspect, but after school, I feel like murdering everyone who has ever experienced happiness and never doing anything for the rest of my life.
