Sick and tired of malingering high school and college students claiming to have ADD/ADHD because they’re bored, can’t (don’t want to or won’t do their homework) or just want drugs. The amount of chemicals produced each year to make drugs like mixed-amphetamine salts (Adderall), lisdexamfetamine (Vyvanse), dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine), methylphenidate (ritalin & concerta) and dexmethylphenidate (Focalin) are strictly controlled. There have been shortages in recent years of these drugs, drugs that those of us who actually have ADD/ADHD (and have hours of neuropsychiatric, psychotherapeutic, and psychiatric testing and interviewing to back that up) REALLY FUCKING NEED.
Stop freaking being drug fiends and be happy you know what it feels like to be normal.
Americans love drugs. This is no secret. We as a people love to get fucked up. There are regional and socioeconomic differences in our drugs of choice however. This is a set of some neat info graphics illustrating this point.
I ruin things
I boldly build beautiful relationships
ties that bind
from seemingly nowhere
I decide to burn it all
to push away what I hold so dear.
I may have lost the best friend I’ve ever had.
I hate 99% of people.
Religion is a cancer.
The vast majority of people are ignorant to the fact that the human race beyond simply being fallible is actually the problem.
After a year and a half of grad school misery in Kansas, I chose to cut my losses and came to the conclusion that what I was studying would not help me reach my ultimate career goal of helping people directly. Research helps people but its just so far off from actually helping people. There are only a few things I miss about Kansas: 1) my best friend in the program H. she was also from NY. 2) Having my own place (living with my parents at the moment and it is embarrassing. 3) Being able to smoke a cigarette whenever I so choose. Parents are parents but I don’t need a goddamn lecture for my own personal choices.
Lastly, a word of warning…People in the midwest are often perceived as being very friendly and nice…that perception is wrong. They’re all fake as shit and crazy judgmental.
