  1. If ur taking this test I think u almost positively think u have ADD or ADHD. I wouldn’t take a schizophrenic test if I wasn’t almost 100 percent sure lol.

    Never thought I did until I realized yelling off an urge to need to was not normal. But whats normal? I have ADD FOR SURE, slight ADHD, social/ general anxiety, depression, insomnia, and I LOVE STIMMING!!! LOL plus i have addicting personality issues. Anger problems, might be bipolar, might slightly be a sociopath. Lol

    1. I wouldn’t be worried about the cannabis because it can help both if he does really have ADHD or if he has Aspergers because it calms your mind if you have ADHD and calms the anxiety often associated with Aspergers but if you really want to get him to take a test ask him the questions or related questions if it’s too obvious randomly throughout the day and write his answers and complete the test. It’s kind of manipulative but if you are seriously worried than this may be a good option, anyways best of luck!

  2. Unfortunately, we as a society are not given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to topics such as ADHD. I somewhat agree and understand the reasoning behind it. However, who really suffers at the end…the patient who needs the medication but is given the ring around when wants to be prescribed ADHD medicine. After doing research on this topic with the help of my girlfriend, I have mustered up enough courage to finally set an appointment with a doctor in San Francisco. I have taken multiple exams online and in each exam I was honest in each answer; it does indicate that I have ADHD. I am truly hoping that the doctor I have made an appointment with see’s it the same way, does not send me on different tests and multiple appointments (all of which requires multiple copays, time off work, and other aspects of my life) just to end up being prescribed something I do not need.

    I am 35 years old, not a junkie, AND JUST WANT A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE. (also been in the community college system for over 15 years without getting a degree, been told I have no discipline by my ex wife, and have extreme difficulty finish various tasks in all aspects of my life)
