I ‘ve seen these lists before and I’ve always wondered if ADHD is a recently diagnosed condition, say within the last 40 or so years for the sake of argument, is there any anecdotal evidence that says Wilbur Wright of the Wright Brothers, or going further back George Washington or Edgar Allan Poe was definitely ADHD? Like, were they tested back then? Or are we just assuming based on some facts that “may” indicate the probability of being ADHD. I’m not trying to burst anyone’s balloon here. We could use all the encouragement we can get….

Strange, few Canadians on that list….
