It’s so unfair to comment on someone elses’s marriage. So I won’t.

I will instead note that ADHD is a neurological difference that often doesn’t need curing. Usually it’s the damage done by bullying and negativity that needs curing.

Usually the abusers are completely convinced they are morally in the right and the ADHD person is evil. It starts early: daycare for my kid.

I believe that people with ADHD do not need to be made normal but to be give the tools to fight with prejudice and thrive.

I am not happy with the moralising tone of these posts. I cannot comment on their tragic circumstances but constant negativity is very harmful, paralysing even.
