Kinda irked by the abstract "pull in" of the increase of gay and lesbian adolescent suicides. I am not trying to take away from the severity of this topic - however, I think it's a broad leap that is pulled in and inadvertently distracts from the direct topic.

Anyway, I have an acquaintance who is Rx'ing doctor and one evening over dinner I asked her about her broad perception ADHD and Dx'ing it in children and her response was, "I would like to see a "parental" questionnaire, developed to coincide with currently used ADHD questionnaires, where family members, (grandparents, siblings of the parents, teachers/school admins, and even older children being observed for diagnoses) could respond to questions regarding the parent(s) involvement and/or efficiency."

A very good idea.

I have ADHD (now fully controlled by meditation and exercise after a stint on medication) and both my kids have been diagnosed too. Quite clearly my ADHD behaviour was an enormous stressor to them- and certainly made them worse. Now they improve as i improve.

The Supreme Court Broke Politics - How Do We Now Reform the Supreme Court?

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well. The complaints are legitimate, but most people don't realize why the situation is as bad as it is.
