ADHD Is Bogus Just Like We Thought It Was

That didn't stop the fucker who came up with it from making money off it though.

Apparently that guy just confessed on his death bed that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder was a "made up" disease.
What a motherfucking weasel.
The anger that wells up in me realizing just how many millions of lives this cocksucker fucked up is very real.
What a fucking cunt.

If you or someone you know has a child that has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), chances are the child is actually just fine. At least this is what the "father" of ADHD, Leon Eisenberg, would presumably say if he were still alive. On his death bed, this psychiatrist and autism pioneer admitted that ADHD is essentially a "fictitious disease," which means that millions of young children today are being needlessly prescribed severe mind-altering drugs that will set them up for a life of drug addiction and failure.

And modern psychiatry continues to profit as well, helping also to fill the coffers of the pharmaceutical industry by getting children addicted early to dangerous psychostimulant drugs like Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Adderall (amphetamine, dextroamphetamine mixed salts).

"ADHD is fraud intended to justify starting children on a life of drug addiction," said Dr. Edward C. Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, back in 1998 about the phony condition. Adding to this sentiment, psychiatrists Peter Breggin and Sami Timimi, both of whom oppose pathologizing the symptoms of ADHD, say that ADHD is more of a social construct than it is an objective "disorder."

Isn't that nice?

Millions of fucked up kids.


The real fucked up part is that now, all these kids who had all these drugs forced down their throats and were stigmatized by this phony diagnosis, are all old enough to be out in the work force, running for political office or better yet,motherfucking LEO's!

Don't that just tighten your scrotum.

Now that this motherfucker let the cat out of the bag, I do believe a complete overhaul of the Pediatric Playbook For Dummies needs to be implemented, yesterday.

The first thing that needs to happen though, is that an untold butt load of kids need to get weaned off these fucking drugs.

Then what is going to have to happen is that the education system is going to have to be overhauled because there are so many teachers out there who can't cope with normal, rowdy fucking kids. They are too programmed to pigeon hole these kids and have them pumped to the gills with behavior modifying drugs.

The implications of what that rat fucking bastard and the rest of these charlatain motherfuckers have done to the last couple of generations of kids can not be conceived.
An entire Industry sprang out of nowhere to fill an imaginary need.

I hope Leon Eisenberg choked to death on his own phlegm with his eyes bulging out of their sockets and his whole face turned blue.

Jesus, this is going to be a huge fucking mess now.

  1. Then as soon as they become "adults" it's cold turkey. And they wonder why meth is such a problem.

  2. I always called it LODD...Lack Of Discipline Disorder. Just another cop out for parents who don't want to take responsibility.

  3. THIRTY years ago I was told my oldest had adhd. Five years later my second had adhd. Long story short: FOUR kids who APPARENTLY ALL had ADHD.
    I basically told the doc's to go fuck themselves and their ritelin bullshit, never gave my kids drugs, and they turned out just fine. Not a BIT like me!

  4. Don't get me wrong, a lot of ADHD is actually "Lack Of Discipline Disorder" or "Crappy Teacher Syndrome," but there are real cases and a *real* set of criteria that is *supposed* to be used. Drugs are *supposed* to be the last resort, but it's easier to give a kid a pill than work with him on organization, concentration, and other related skills!

  5. A semi-random thought. Are there more boys than girls who are on these drugs?
    Small boys are lively little brats who need to run around a lot so they can burn off excess energy. Having done that they _should_ be amenable to some quiet learning in the classroom.
    Just a thought.

  6. Back in the stone age, when I went to school, a good swat on the ass stopped a lot of that. We had kids that were very active, almost disruptive in school. Nobody was drugged and nobody shot up the school. Hell, I took a shotgun to school in the 6th grade for show and tell. Carried it on the bus, with a box of shells. It sat in the back of the room with the coats all day and nobody died.

    Question, don't you check your mail? I sent a message about knives.

  7. Pump these kids up with high fructose corn syrup and junk food loaded with sugar and of course they will be hyper-active. Psychiatry is a fraud, just like Sigmund Fraud. Give them chemical lobotmies and line the pockets of the drug companies at the same time. Fuckers.

  8. Due to pc bs we are also putting bright young children in classrooms with others who cannot do anything but fingerpaint with boogers. They get bored and become disruptive, stop educating to the lowest common denominator.
