Thank you for your thoughtful comment. My husband was diagnosed with ADHD after 40+ years of misery and feeling something was wrong but not being able to put his finger on it. Until diagnosis and medication, he was never able to hold down a job or manage money, or do anything involving planning, which led to us almost getting divorced. The consequences of this disorder or temperament are real in 21st Century America. While I agree that many children are over-diagnosed and over-treated, it is simplistic black and white thinking to assume this condition does not exist in any form.
