I came across this interesting article titled: “Skepticism suddenly disappears when list of symptoms hits home”. The author makes some interesting points worth honest consideration so I thought I’d pass it along to my readers.
Skepticism suddenly disappears when list of symptoms hits home
I was thumbing through an old issue of Newsweek waiting for my daughter at the orthodontist’s the other day and came a cross an article about adult ADHD – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It turns out it’s not just for kids anymore.
I read the article with some skepticism. I have thought for a long time that ADHD is over-diagnosed. When a kid has trouble sitting through a school day or can’t seem to connect with his teachers, there’s the temptation to slap the ADHD label on him and prescribe medication.
