Not many things get my goat. In fact, I like to think that I am a very laid back type of person. Though I think you would already know this, if you have been through it with me on my blog. So here is one of the few things that truly makes me enraged.

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. 
P.S. Here have this video.
