Unrealistic, the kid would have been diagnosed with autism.
@The Manwhore, funny little story about myself! When I was in elementary school (can't remember the grade) I would ace math tests but never show my work like they wanted to and I would always just do the work in my head. First, they thought I was cheating. So they gave me a 100 problem test in a room by myself, I aced it, didn't show my work. So they thought I might be autistic.
@The Manwhore, wouldn't he have to be vaccinated first?
What was i doing?
Oh look a comic.

Oh look a comic.
My brother has ADHD, so I can say it exists for sure. He's super successful but you see the signs there sometimes and it bothers the sh!t out of you sometimes.
I got diagnosed with so much crap growing up its ridiculous. ADD, ADHD, ODD, OCD, Asperger's, gifted.
I changed psychiatrists when I was a teenager. I told him my last psychiatrist had me on 90 milligrams of Ritalin every day. The new one just looks at me and says "that's brave."
That's kinda like if you go to a walk in clinic, and the doctor looks at your problem and goes "that's new."
Not something you want to hear.
Congratulations to everyone whos read all these comments! You don't have ADHD apparently
First! Yeah I did it. Piss off.
Ok ADHD is absolute horsesh*t. Every minorly abberant behavior can't be classified as a problem, because overmedication ensues, and people begin to find more and more "problems" that th.... Holy crap is that the football game? Brb
@Dr Rick Sanchez, I feel like ADHD is really just a side effect of the human attention span becoming so short and... Has that wall always been that color?
@Dr Rick Sanchez, if you look at brain scans of someone who TRULY has ADHD, they have a minor chemical imbalance, similar to other disorders (depression, anxiety) that most certainly exist. While I will agree that many doctors probably just throw diagnosis around, since ADHD meds are hella expensive, there are still legit cases that most certainly exist.
@Dr Rick Sanchez, I was 3 seconds away from downvoting you with tear filled eyes. I was like, he can't go there! And then... wait, I need to go clean, homework, and... what were we talking about again?
@Shichika Yasuri, My comment was a joke, guy.
But since you bring it up, everyone knows it exists. But it's kinda like how short people exist. It's biologically observable, and very common, but a disease? Naw. Like.. being 5'4" could be limiting, but it's just nature. A lot of people simply aren't tall. We shouldn't mass produce growth hormones for every kid under 6'. And we shouldn't give pills to every kid who has trouble concentrating
@Dr Rick Sanchez, sorry, I just get kinda worked up easily about things like that. I do think that there are people that really need meds to deal with stuff like that, but far too many people take advantage of other people's needs.
@Shichika Yasuri, Ok ok, we chillin'. I get up in arms about it too, cause I have family members with serious mental problems and I don't like that ADHD is on the same tier as those
@Dr Rick Sanchez, yeah, I get it. I feel like people put way to much emphasis on something minor, when many people that do have problems are just lost in a crowd of nagging parents and greedy doctors. And many people with some attention disorder often actually have a real problem, like depression or anxiety. Now, let's focus on more lighthearted things, like getting that 3rd season out.
@Dr Rick Sanchez, it's not on the same tier. I'm going to use the U.S. school system as an example. A kid with ODD or bipolar disorder or depression or any big emotional/behavioral things like that will receive services under the category "Emotional Disturbance." Kids with ADD/ADHD receive services under "Other Health Impairments," which includes things like asthma and epilepsy. It's considered medical, not psychological. And I don't think that interpretation is limited to the school system.
@Dr Rick Sanchez, well ADD/ADHD impairs ones life in many ways. Height doesn't affect the quality of work/school work while the ADD/ADHD does.
A doctor diagnosed my cousin with ADHD and gave him medicine for it. The meds made it where he would not eat at all and was depressed (he was under 10 when all this happen), now I just wonder is it really that bad that a kid is a little more hyper than everyone else. I can't wait for a doctor to try and say my kid has ADHD and give him meds, probably get banned from there from all the cursing. (Sorry for the long post)
@telam, I have a cousin that actually has ADHD. Almost anyone could tell that yes he is a bit different than most kids his age. Yes he is hyper (but most kids at age 8 tend to be) but he has to struggle a lot when it comes to school because he can hear/see everything. So he can hear the ticking clock which your brain naturally shuts out. It distracts a bunch. The problem is the doctors throw the term around loosely and is difficult to tell which ones are lying and telling the truth
Part of comic "we're working on a vaccine "... That's what is wrong with western medicine, we see a minor problem and we immediately throw medicine at it until it goes away, especially when it doesn't need to be treated to begin with
I'll read this later
In all honesty, there are a lot more things to pay attention to now than there used to be. I mean, my grandpa got straight A's in school but he didn't have FunnyPics, or Fallout... Hence my C's.
