ADD vs. a severe case of modern life?

In hindsight, when i got my first prescription for ritalin, it was to treat my severe case of modern life!

That makes sense. How are we supposed to juggle and retain so much information without some form of "ADD?" Maybe "ADD" is an adaptation to changes in the world. Maybe it's a form of intelligence, a highly intelligent way of processing a vast and deep variety of information. Although it does take away from some forms of extended focus and concentration, maybe it also enhances the ability to make connections and understand a variety of things. We still need to work at that extended focus, but we also need to work at the ability to shift gears effectively.

And maybe THAT is one reason why one of our recurring themes around here is that adderall seems to remove something of our intelligence. Not that everyone here has had that experience, or is ADD, but it seems that it makes us hyper-focused to a point where it takes away from our real intelligence(s), which are, as always, multiple.

I might be projecting or something but all those women who were on adderall just had that same "dead look" in their eyes. No light, no humor. No thanks!
