Wow, finally I found someone who perfectly understands what ADHD is all about. thank you for your research Doctor.
@funservercc to a point. horrible memory can make you feel like a complete idiot. and it makes everyone around you think you are an idiot, if they can’t grasp the 2011 concept of adhd instead of 1980… DX omg makes me wanna shoot my eyes out. or just kill the bastards at work who keep saying you don’t know how to do anything….. arg.. lol
@charitha42 disorder or not, yes. real or not, no… it is very real.
Barkley is a genius. I wish I could hear him live. Anyone know if he is coming to the Toronto area?
@lenore123456789 people with adhd are so much more comelled towards drugs. im drunk right know adn waiting for a psych doctor
Same here. In fact, I often wish I restrained my emotions less, it seems like I almost never act out.
This is the one thing I’ve found that I do not relate with at all. I do have moments where I snap on people without really thinking about it, but they are rare. I usually repress my emotions all of the time. I also keep to myself a lot of the time. I have extreme social anxiety and a fear of what will happen when talking to people, so I keep quiet a majority of the time regardless of all of my thoughts, such as input into a conversation or a question on something I don’t understand.
Dr Russell Barkley – ADHD Emotional Regulation
If having a VERY bad working memory, impulsiveness and inability to moderate your own emotion is detrimental to your life then it is a disability.
Adhd does not block or inhibit your intelligence; if the person did not have Adhd their intelligence would be just the same as would their creativity. The difference is the person’s inability to organise and focus to achieve what they should be doing to reach their goals in life.
You guys should stop writing when you are drunk
And for your information.. ADHD is still under question whether its a disorder or not… The facts that this person so confidently presents.. like ” Limbic system is the Emotional brain” and about Anterior cingulate regulate emotions are non but theories which no one knows for sure if correct or not… well its possible that the brain operation of ADHD are different.. but still brain imagery can never be used as absolute evidence to map out all the emotions of a person,, its not brain alone..
@BrewedalTea Oh dear Brother nothing to get so angry about.. if you have so much respect for this person that overwhelmed you basic rational mode of though,, It is I that is feeling sorry for you.. Lets look at science .. no one has ever proven the brain to be the origin of all thoughts.. brain imaging can never read the thoughts of a person.Do you think everything we have as conventions.. like law, medical ethics, education system are perfect ?can u prove that conventional education is perfect?
@charitha42 of what people go through. ADHD has nothing to deal with creativity. nor does the process of education. If you watched his entire presentation and understood what he was trying to say you wouldn’t have anything to disagree with him. “it is the inability of the anterior singulate to govern that limbic system, so that once emotions once provoked get expressed without that top down management that other people would be doing, using the frontal lobe to reach in, take hold, and fine
@charitha42 and i honestly do feel sorry for you. for someone who tries to cognate these bullshit, condescending pseudo intricate sentences to try to discredit someone who is a respected member of the community is laughable. And if you genuinely have an argument or any sort of hypothesis to prove Barkley’s theories, and years of research wrong, then i would love to see it. As a person with ADHD myself, i would say after watching his presentation that his description is very accurate
@charitha42 and a disorder is when “a thing” behaves differently from the conventional. for example bipolar is a disorder in which a person goes through a state of moods where he becomes manic for a lapse of time and then becomes depressed for a lapse of time, its very unconventional as it does not have the same output of a “conventional mind” so it is a disorder. With ADHD which is failure to pay attention, hyperactivity. and impulsiveness. all of which are unconventional, which is a disorder
@charitha42 Scientists use neuro chemistry and brain imaging to prove points, if it was still just a hypothesis then ADHD would still be questioned as whether or not it was a disorder, but today it is accepted as a disorder, and i dont think i have to list sources to say that neruo chemistry and brain imaging have helped. and why does someone need to be Einstein to know what ADHD is like? this man is doing so much for those who have this disorder.
ADHD is not a disorder.. its the consequence of making different minded people into a conventional system of life and expecting the same output as conventional minds… also brain imaging, neuro chemistry based hypothesis can never be considered as the way in which people think.. hypothesis are good as never made.. because to know what ADHD is you have to be some one with ADHD like Einstein, Thomas Edison etc… well its time for acceptance that some are dont have that mind.. Ex : Barkley.
@friedmann1959 Well I should say again I m not responsible for anyones bean sized perceptive ability…. and also to regard something as dumb you should first consider yourself intelligent.. which means if I ask you what intelligence means you should be able answer it.. In that case I feel sorry for you… anyway you seem to see everything as a disorder,, so again I say I really feel sorry for you..
@funservercc .. well I m sorry but I was arguing on the basis of the very nature of ADHD.. why do adhd people day dream.. why are they impulsive ? why do they not tolerate direct knowledge input? its not about coping up with stupidity.. but creating ones own reality by ones own imagination.. when this natural intelligence is blocked they react in other ways.. Education ruins the behavioral needs of creative minds.. adhd is not a disorder,, it s the characteristic of different creative minds..
Do you have a language disorder?
This sounds confused
Do you have a language disorder?
pretty dumb comment, you know
You seem to have absolutely no sense for , and understanding of science my dear.
That’s absolutely correct and supported by all the gibberish answers on this thread.
Most people who posted here actually seem to make Prof. Barkley’s case.
What nonsense everyone is speaking. This professor is at he very forefront of his field and I thank God for his ground breaking research and help in bringing such a dreadful condtion into mainstream medicine.
So I guess there is no hope, I mean speak the truth, but he makes it impossible !
