ADHD- Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder...
What the hell?
The general explaination for it is that this person has a problem with attention. He can't pay attention to one item for long periods of time, thus making him hyperactive. But why is he hyperactive? Actually, it's just that he keep switching from task to task, while a normal person would have been able to keep to one task and finish it. Perhaps the ADHD person can finish all 5 or 10 tasks at the same time? Coz he's hyperactive? Okay, i absolutely don't know about that. But...it's always bugged me. Why is it called attention deficit? Hmm....could it actually mean that the person is trying to tell you...
"GIVE ME MORE ATTENTION!"
I mean, it's practically screaming in your face. But science just seems to want to interpret it in the passive manner, not the active manner when the kid starts slamming and smashing every single object that he comes into contact with (remembers Jerry Maguire and that freaky black kiddo who smashes up everything in the office and shouts "The terminator is back!"...what a freaky bundle of havoc) and he's actually trying to tell you: "MUMMY LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!"
Well, maybe Freud would say that it's some sort of transference. Like the baby wants more attention because he just feels that he's not getting enough of it. Wow, now i'm implying that babies might actually have a sign of qualitative processing. Wow, OMG this is freaking amazing. Wait till all those hyper babies grown up and become needy teens. Oh, not needy actually, they just grow up and ask their parents for a really, really fast sports car. No, not like a Ferrari or Lambo, but one of those japanese sports cars which are not worth six digit USDs and you can actually afford having your kid drag it around just for the sake of trying to smash it up. Wow, we just solved the mystery of the mid-life crisis. How come people buy fast sports cars or do crazy things during middle age?
Maybe, for the guys, the term of "to die in style" is getting too deep into their heads. All these storylines and drama tricks that soap operas and even movies are using are getting into people's heads. Even the adults, although they are obviously denying it, and obviously putting them in a state of denial about their own susceptibility towards conditioning that movies do oh so well, are being dragged into these things. Oh, i wanna get a Ferrari. Why? I want to race my ex-boss and see who's got the bigger, better, faster engine going. And then, end up "dying in style" coz he forgot to read the instruction manual, which said that "going over 200 km/h is extremely dangerous and recommended only for professionals". Great...so you didn't read the manual and probably caused your own mid-life crisis.
ADHD, it's SCREAMING RIGHT IN YOUR FACE!
How come it's interpreted as having lack of attention span, when the literal meaning of "Attention Deficit" is you are lacking of attention?!?! There shouldn't be some drug prescription, but instead big signs and letters stuck on every shirt they wear that states wide and clear "I NEED MORE ATTENTION, OR ELSE!". Yes, or else... they'll start acting like that kiddo from Jerry Maguire. Freaky...
ADHD....it should be an acronym for Allowed Deprivation of Having a Donut...(for those who wish to lose weight) :P
