    Yeah. You’re right. My? bad.

  • 9natasha4 says:

    Me. Doing drugs are a DEATH WISH. Now, you can agree with me or not, but…Ok, have you ever heard of the guy who ate another man’s face off then cutting his stomach upen and then throwing his intestants (ugh…can’t spell…-_-“) ant the cops? All of THAT was because of DRUGS. You can? believe whatever you want to believe.

    provide links to these studies where these scientists have proven these mental illnesses to be false. last time i checked, most of these mental illnesses can be witnessed by using a ct scan of the brain and which? neurons are firing because of the neurotransmitters being sent across synapses. maybe it’s time for you to do some homework before you say things are fact

  • ParabolH says:

    “If? you use amphetamines everyday, even if you don’t get intoxicated in anyway. Then your a drug addict.”…by your logic, everyone who drinks a beer once a day is an alcoholic. everyone who eats every day is a binge eater. everyone who showers every day is a clean freak. your logic is that if you do something everyday you are automatically the worst stigma attached to that action. you seem to comment on this video a lot. by your logic you spend all your time here

  • ParabolH says:

    and by the way, if you’re going to call people incompetent morons, at least use proper grammar such as you’re, and doesn’t, their.? frankly i can work out for 3 hours, burn over 600 calories, and still can’t focus on things for more than an hour. does that make me over hyper too? or am i just a stellar athlete and never tire out. if you’re going to make insults at people for mental illness, which i am assuming you don’t have, back it up with facts

  • ParabolH says:

    sorry but i have ADHD and i hold over a 3.0 GPA in college. that doesnt make me an incompetent moron. but when a single topic in class leads to 7 different mental tangents and you miss out? on important discussions because of that, it is a problem. would you rather me drink 4 red bulls every day so that i can concentrate? then people would get heart problems from red bull and it would be pulled off the shelves. or any energy drink for that matter. your pick…

  • ParabolH says:

    i agree. got prescribed XR 15mg adderall today and had to go to 5 pharmicies to get a one month script filled. its ridiculous. i got this script to help me come off 3 different medications that after 3 years might not even be working, and I am being told the medication i need so i dont get sick from weening off the original medications isnt available. such a shame kids are such little selfish shits who pretend to have this condition. trust me having adhd is? a curse

  • ParabolH says:

    because the people that are abusing these pills who actually dont need the medications are creating a shortage for those who actually need this medication. i had a suicide attempt about a month ago, and the psychiatrist i am seeing is weening me off of all meds i am on now and i was prescribed adderall to supplement coming off taking ritalin and klonapin 3 times a day. but i had to go to 5 pharmicies. this is to get off meds ive been using for 3 years? and arent working.

    In my experience, even if you are diagnosed with ADHD (which was way, way longer and harder than what the woman in the video said [required several sessions with a? psychiatrist, several long questioners that you, your parents, and your teachers fill out, ect.]), psychiatrists will almost always they will start you on Strattera (a non-stimulant) and do that for over 6 months before they will even consider a stimulant.

    Did you know hundreds of people died from starvation, dehydration, and AIDS? today?

    I was to preoccupied thinking about the horrible life I have, I mean I can’t handle my emotions,? do you know how horrible that is? The pain, o god.

  • 9natasha4 says:

    Well, that’s YOUR dogma, not mine. So, don’t drag me into somthing that I don’t believe in. And if you think that I’m gonnna offended by you by calling me a retard…, I REALLY don’t care what you say about me. Because I’ve ENDURED it throughout my childhood from all the of times that I’ve been relentlessly harassed by others because of my race and gender. Not to mention the fact that I had an introverted? personality. You wouldn’t FATHOM the pain that I had felt since then!!

  • JenkemBOMBS says:

    How can you explain that EVERY SCIENTIST AND? MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL in Canada and many other countries denies that ADD/ADHD exists?

    Are you telling those SCIENTISTS, DOCTORS, AND MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS are wrong, because there all in a agreement that ADD/ADHD is not real?

    Pharma companies and “psychologists” just renamed certain personality traits and natural behaviors into a “disease” so they could gain profit by selling amphetamines. FUCKING RETARD IT ISN’T REAL.

  • 9natasha4 says:

    [Brookland New Yorker accent]: Okay, look; FIRST off, I ain’t no drug addict; that’s for retards like you. SECOND, if ADHD DIDN’T exsist, then how do you explain the SCIENTISTS & DOCTORS who DISCOVERED ADHD and made medications FOR ADHD? Can you answer me that? Didn’t? think so. Unless you’re eather a scientist, a doctor, a professional, or an expert on disorders and diseases, keep your opinons to yourself.

  • JenkemBOMBS says:

    Your not better then anyone else who uses amphetamines. You can’t possibly think because you fabricated a fictional disease, that its ok for you to use amphetamines, and anyone else that uses amphetamines is a idiot/deviant?

    If you use amphetamines everyday, even if you don’t get intoxicated in anyway. Then your a drug addict.

    How im I a? bad guy for using amphetamines, and your not? You fucking gullible douchebag, you think your personality is a “mental illness”.
