Yes, ADHD is Over-diagnosed

By Rick Green,

“Oh, everyone thinks they have ADD nowadays. It’s over-diagnosed. It’s the internet. And cell phones. And everyone’s trying to do 9 things at once. Fifty years ago there was no such thing as ADHD.”

Comments like that used to set me off on a rant, “Actually, no. Everyone does not have ADHD! Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is driven by genes. It runs in families. It’s highly heritable. And it’s usually there at birth. Or even before! In fact, one doctor in our film, ADD & Loving It?! who has four sons…”

Everyone who has been diagnosed with ADHD has their own version of this horror story.

You’re struggling in life. You finally get diagnosed. You start making changes, trying some ADHD-friendly tools, finally understanding why some tasks are so hard, and others are a breeze. You begin to ‘bend the world to suit you’, as we recommend in ADD & Mastering It!

“We couldn’t finish the entire set. It was impossible.”

By Rick Green,
This week we heard from a woman who purchased our 5-video set, ADHD Medication: Straight Answers to Big Questions. She was very upset because the three people in her household who are struggling with ADHD couldn’t sit through all 4 ½ hours of video.

ADHD Medication VideoNo kidding! I couldn’t either. I doubt anyone could.

If someone actually managed to white-knuckle their way through all five videos, I doubt they’d remember anything. Including their own name…

Offering A Reward

By Rick Green

Have you ever heard the term ‘Reward Deficiency Syndrome’? From what I understand, it came out of research by Dr. Kenneth Blum and others. They were searching for a specific genetic glitch that might increase the risk of alcoholism.

They understood that something as complex as an addiction can not be caused by any single gene, but the one gene being studied did seem to increase the risk…
