"I'm with you on the gifts of ADHD. The absent mindedness is frustrating as hell to me, but I love being quick witted and adventurous. I think the benefits of ADHD actually outweight the detrimental aspects."

""I'll never call ADHD a gift. That's kind of Jenny McCarthy-ism at its worst in my opinion. But even a dark cloud can have a silver lining. Sometimes." That's the sentiment I was trying to express. We shouldn't think…"

What are the gifts of ADD?

For all those suffering with ADD, there are ways that it can be an extremely valuable gift. Do you know of any?Here are the gifts ADD has brought to me. In no particular order:Conferences and or teaching skills: I can execute a conference or teach a class and see the smallest question on people’s faces.

Will Higdon replied to OutlawGirl's discussion Remembering things in the group ADDventures in Atheism!
"I have it so bad, and the only way I survive (without a full time minder) is a smart phone. Everything I do goes onto a calendar, and then the smart phone synchronizes to warn me. I tried everything prior, and this is all that works. But to forget…"

Atheists with ADD/ADHD: Ever gotten in trouble for pretending to be an airplane during church? Been possessed by demons? Not to worry! That’s not Beelzebub; it’s just your ADD.

Hi. Welcome to this great site and its thousands of bright people like you who recognise religion for the superstition and giant fraud that it is,
and that gods are merely fictions filling up valuable space inside the brains of the 'faith-ful'.

"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humankind, Fossils, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its over 240 discussion topics.

We invite you to come and see, and to make good new friends.
