The reason that I started this community is because I was diagnosed as having ADD when I was in 3rd grade and I was medicated for it for about 5 or 6 years. I eventually rejected my medication (though I do not recommend this for everyone, I knew that it was the right thing for me) and found ways to get along on my own in the world without it. Today I am a successful young adult, and I have studied psychology and sociology and learned much about people. The one thing that I have noticed is that American society seems to define more mental disorders than anywhere else in the world, which leads me to wonder if they really are disorders.
