ADD Debate

Joe Carter of Evangelical Outpost has started a series about the validity of ADHD and various forms of treatment. This hits home for me, since I have ADD (I've written about that here.) If anyone has anything to add, you can check out the 3rd post of the series here.

I stand by my previous statements. If ADD isn't a neurological disorder, I must have a really f**ked up personality.

The discussion seems to be focused more on terminology and treatment at this point than the actual existence of ADD, since that's been established in at least some cases.

In terms of behavioral therapy for ADD, I've found playing drums to be a pretty good short-term solution. It burns extra energy and allows you to release tension. Plus, you get to beat the crap out of stuff with wooden sticks. Heh heh.
