ADD? - December 1st 2010, 02:13 AM

I just spent the last hour arguing with an ex about it not being my fault that I can't control my attention span. I have ADD but never been treated for it. Is it really my fault that I can't control it?

I think labels like ADD and ADHD are ridiculous. You naturally have a short attention span. Thats the way you are and if your boyfriend can't accept it and will waste time arguing over something as immature as that. I'm afraid that I personally think that a guy like that isn't worth your time if he cannot accept you. And don't get that medication.... it makes you boring

If you feel like you want to control it more you could always seek treatment for it. It's not your fault in anyway. ADD is behavior and like all other behaviors it can be changed. If you wouldn't want to take a medication for it you could use therapy, they could give you ways to work on controling it.
