Subject: RE: ADHD- Ritalin
Hi Kids... As some of you know, I come from a long line of folks who made there way in the world because we have ADHD. It is not a dysablity unless we don't learn to use it, ballence it with a lot of self control, and I am of two minds about meds. Never used them myself, know some who do... haven't tried it, wont. EBBIE! I loved yer song...
Well, I think the problem is that a lot of teachers find it easier to drug kids into "normality" without concidering WE are part of normal... just more entusiatic.
More latter...
YES there is such a thing as ADHD Yes it is misnamed, two ,it can be really wonderful.

PS SOmetimes it does hurt... but those dark nights of the soul make us who we are...
