  1. @JohnnyRock2000 cont…running out of fuel. that’s why I supplement with protein. for me to operate I need to be in hyperfocus mode…and to sustain such levels I supplement with protein. Mayb an ADD person can cross a 1/2 mile minefield like a normal person. But make it 5 miles, I’m sure an ADD person would get blown up whereas a normal person would still be walking. u think ADD pple like forgeting things that cost their GPA and job? u think ADDers like getting into car accidents?

  2. @JohnnyRock2000 ADDer’s will either hyperfocus on something they find stimulating or have close to no focus at all for mundane things. It has to do with abnormal levels of dopamine in the brain and the regulation thereof. You don’t understand that an ADDer nearly needs to hyperfocus to be in “reality” and this level of awareness can’t be sustained for a long time before the brain tires and “spaces” out. that’s what’s happening. It just like a car can’t go at full throttle for too long w/o ….

  3. @JohnnyRock2000 mayb this is a better analogy: an ADDer is like a race car versus a normal everyday car. A race car is designed to go very fast on a race track; it’s not for your everyday driving to a grocery store at mid-speeds. The race car isnt comfortable like a cruiser for long distance trips, and with all it’s horsepower it goes through fuel a lot faster.

    The speed of the car is like focus. ADDer’s can hyperfocus but at the cost of the brain starving (burns fuel too quickly)

  4. @JohnnyRock2000 U’re still not getting the examples I mention…you still seem to think an ADDer can focus just as easily as a normal person. That simply IS NOT the case. It takes multiple times more effort. Sure, a person with a deformed leg can learn how to run. To think the person SHOULD be able to become an olympic track star is simply stupid. You need to understand what happens neurologically in an ADD brain b4 making such judgements. Research dopamine and how it affects pple.

  5. @felix242 How many ADD’ers forget that they are walking down a sidewalk and just walk onto a busy street?If you had to cross a 1/2 mile minefield, when would be the moment that you would start skipping and singing through an imagined meadow? When you’re being slapped around by some bully at school, when would you trip into something more pleasant and interesting to think about?People can force themselves to pull out of headspace and focus. People that wander into traffic need the pills for sure.

  6. @felix242 I’m sure that it is not as black and white as that. I’m thinking that it is a matter of degree, in that there are full blow ADD’ers that are off in space 90% of the time and don’t know what they had for breakfast and there are also ADD’ers that slowing fade in and out from the “here and now” and back into mindspace and back out here again, but are not considered “vacant” or a “space cadet” by others. Cognitive discipline might work in time for some while others need the “meth”.

  7. @JohnnyRock2000 the wiring of an ADD brain is not the same as a normal brain. you can’t force someone without perfect pitch to easily distinguish notes even though people can be “trained” to. You can’t force someone red/green color blind to distinguish between red and green as easily as a normal person even though they can distinguish red and green by degrees of shade. In the same way, you can’t force someone with ADD to focus as easily as a normal person.

  8. @JohnnyRock2000 You’re talking to someone who has ADD and does not take medication. I’ve gone through highschool and college without medication and I can tell you by experience it’s not as easy as you think it is. I took medication for a few months and decided to “change” myself on my own. what u’re saying is a lot like telling someone with a deformed leg they need to learn how to run just as fast as the other kids in the gym. you dont have much basis for ur convictions

  9. @felix242 – A comment about focusing.An ADD person can focus on things that “interest” them, but when the interest is not there or minimal, the mind chatter moves in and attention is diverted. Divided attention is the result. It is a choice though and not clearly or entirely conscious.ADD’ers can learn to identify when their attention is fading and redirect it, willfully. The tendency to “fade” may have to be identified and addressed every few seconds even and reigned in, but it can be learned.

  10. @JohnnyRock2000 doesnt work you idiot. that’s the difference between an ADD person and a normal person. An ADD person couldnt focus if it’d cost him his life much less a shock collar. focus isnt a matter of choice like w/ a normal person. focusing on something unstimulating for a normal person is tolerable for up to an hour before the brain gets “hungry” and tired. for an ADD person it’s much shorter (like10mins) before the brain literally starves for stimulation. “hugely” <--- stupid word

  11. Dog collars are the cure. The shocking kind. Give everyone a remote and when the ADD person begins to fade into oblivion, push the button and blast him. Pretty soon you will see that his attention will be HUGELY focused.

  12. ROFLMFFAO! These comments are much more interesting & informative than anything in the video clip. I’m SOOO glad not to be alone here! I can’t get any respect from doctors without money or family to back me up. The local mental health service openly admits that they “ignore” ADHD & PTSD. The docs aren’t even allowed to discuss it with patients! Can you dig that fecal excrement?

  13. @nzlook11 Lool I dont really understand what you mean 😛

    A big stain. Terrrible. Did you notice the spider in the corner as well?
    He was big. What were you saying?
    Yup, i know the feeling. I am 50 and am just coming to terms with this. I started stim. meds but no good. Now i am starting Strattera, like today.

    Inattention, perhaps hyperactivity and the ability to hyperfocus at times. If u r intersted, u will be into it but if not interested, forget it. U will be inconsistent. U get overloaded.

    Also, u r a bit of a zny type

  18. @Seastone88 Damn right. How can you pretend to be some kind of expert on the subject, and then make a video to put on the net, that has no form action in it. I mean, what the fuck dawg, come on. Remake, do it right.
