    There is no question, I'm just saying ADD is a something that is not understood until you experience it.

    And that includes what effect ritalin has on the person who has it.

    I have it, have always had it and it's a rush that can not even be put into words.

    Two of my closest friends suffer from bipolar disorder--they're alive and productive because of prescription medications.

    Tom Cruise is a set of teeth.

    I work with a woman who has ADD. Friday, I tried to give her a heads up about a file she was about to receive, and a call she was about to get about that file. I had about 5 sentences to say, but she interrupted me 3 times while I was trying to get those 5 sentences out. She could not listen that long.

    She's supposed to take medication, but she doesn't always. She doesn't like how it makes her feel. You can really notice a difference when she's on her medication.

    I never said that ther aren't cases where drugs aren't beneficial. I simply believe they are being over prescribed in various case situations. Especially with a child that is deemed hyper-active. Parents are too quick to put the child on various drugs.

    My oldest was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome several years ago. It's taken a greater commitment/involvement from us as parents; but it's been well worth it. We've had more problem with the school system then we have our son.

    I never said that there are not cases in which drugs are necessary. But my issue is with the fact that ADD/ADHD is one of the most overdiagnosed disorders today. There are many legitimate cases out there, but there's also kids on these drugs that aren't truly dealing with ADD or ADHD.

    I do believe that drugs are quite often necessary to treat the disorder. However, I have serious issues with stimulant medications and their mode of action. If someone needs to be treated for ADD, they are much better off being treated with a non-stimulant medication like Strattera.

    Cruise is doing a heck of a job promoting War of the Worlds.

    In a related story, Cruise went on a sportstalk radio show spouting of his theory of "soft walks" "batting w/RISP as the true measure of a player" and the fact that "OPS" doesn't really exist.

    Bipolar is a far cry from ADD. Our culture's solution to any ailment is a pill, right down to undisciplined, misbehaving children in school. Sad.

    I was responding to Tom Cruise's blanket assessment that any mental illness can be dealt with by the use of vitamins and exercise.

    You see bipolar as a far cry from ADD, but I suspect someone with ADD might think differently. I don't know. I don't suffer from either one.

    IMO, ADD is a catch all to cover anything from a legitimate learning disability to a behavioral problem. But I'm not real confident that a person diagnosed with ADD wants to be considered mentally ill, unless of course it helps excuse them from some behavior they do not want to be held responsible for. The issue that GAC brought up about the pressure schools are exerting on families is a tragic consequence of this "diagnosis" and "treatment", and an important problem that needs to be addressed before another generation of druggies is littering the welfare rolls with an excuse that's been given to them for as long as they can remember.

    But then, I'm someone who does not consider an alcoholic or a drug addict as having a "disease."

    What are the beliefs of Scientolgy? Is there a website or something that highlights the objectives of this faith.

    I'm curious, since it is the new Hollywood fad and those fad's crack me up.

    It's not at all new. This isn't anything like kabbalah or whatever, it's quite a bit more sinister.
