I agree that we are looking at a combination of factors. Still much of what you seem to have determined is moot. Not all doctors are quick to prescribe and given the immense time constraints we put on ourselves in society today, the act of living like this is producing an underlying madness. I feel if we are aware of our own time constraints, that makes for a better understanding of processing. Emotional sensitivity is the key and children today are at a heighten response. Medication is, and can be very beneficial, if it’s approached in a controlled way. The medical community has just skim the surface on emotion and ADHD.
