Sometimes, I will be watching videos on YouTube. Placidly, waiting for those commericals to go away, and occassionaly I decide to focus on a commerical or two. I don't mind too much anyway.That changes when its a commerical for medicine. Medicine for children and adults with A.D.(H.)D. For those who don't possess A.D.(H.)D., you probably won't see the problem. You might even think, "Wait, that's good, right? I mean now you can focus, and be like the rest of us." But for me, when those commericals come on, they are telling me that I actually have a problem, that I cannot handle on my own. A.D.(H.)D. is not a life-threatening disease. It is not something that can appear or go away with time. It is not a curse.
Education should not be one size fits all. Education is not a disposable water-proof poncho. I don't think I am making any sense. I am going to try to put it in a different light.
In one sentence, I can sum what I was told about the human race in my childhood, "We are all different, and that is a good thing." So why is it that when two or three children are a little more different than the rest, they need something to fix that? I would be like me suggesting that a person without A.D.(H.) D. needs medicine to make them more like us. How silly.
In conclusion: if you have A.D.(H.) D. don't let some knuckle-head give you medicine. You can do whatever you need to do without it. When you become aware of exactly what you need to do, you will find everything is a lot easier. I know I did.
I love you.
