  • ADHD is not a “supposed” disorder. I have had it since I was a child, but didn’t know until I was an adult, and things could have been very different for me if I had. Different as in better. Stimulant medication made a HUGE difference for me, and just because it’s a “brain” drug, doesn’t make it bad. Do you call Epilepsy a “supposed” disorder and consider medication for seizures a problem with big pharma in bed with psychiatry? How about MS? SSRI’s given to children, adolescents, and adults are absolutely a problematic choice, but I know many adults who took ADHD meds as a kid but don’t anymore, and they are A-OK. Please try a smaller brush to paint with.

  • That’s why I will only see a social worker for therapy. Their entire focus is different than psychologists, and of course, psychiatrists. Social justice, systemic thinking, client-centered, non-medical model, etc… No hocus pocus. Of course, there are fools and charlatans in every single profession, but my experience is that clinical social workers are trained to see a person in their environment, and the intersection of all the domains of the individual’s life and how it impacts them.
