    I am ADD and it is REAL!!! Trust me on this one.
    As a kid I was worried I had "mad cow desease" , Azsheimers or Parkinsons, honestly :/
    Never knew I had the "MBD" back then ("ADD")
    They want to call it CDD in sciencetific circles, I read :o

    Well, plot twist, an INFP who thinks they really do have ADD.

    Now I was never diagnosed with ADD, but instead ADHD. The medicine was horrible, and I stopped taking it. Vyvanse is some horrible stuff. Depression in a bottle. At least for me and a friend who took it as well.

    I havent been tested, but I usually score the highest result in the ADD ADHD tests.
    I don't know people around me know what ADD is, but they often accused me of being too detached from real world and having the worse attention span.
    I've suffered because of this a lot at school.

    Which is why there is no future for us. We are the outcasts, the downtrodden, the forgotten—the defects! That is why I wish I could work with people alone. I an so sick of social games and just want to know where I truly stand with people. Let your yes mean yes, and your no mean no. No exceptions.

    I'm diagnosed ADHD! I have almost no attention span, it's incredibly difficult for me to focus on one thing for more than a minute before wanting to jump to something else.

    ADHD, like all disorders, varies in severity from person to person. Some with ADHD get along relatively okay, while others struggle a lot. Plus it doesn't help that ADHD is a disorder of executive functioning, which involves skills such as planning, self-control, working memory, etc. - basically most of the things nearly required to be successful in this world.
