"Nobody knows how hard it is to have ADD,
I mean, everyone thinks -
Hey, look! A butterfly!!!"

I saw that on a refrigerator magnet.

I've been diagnosed with this too.
Western medicine is bunk, though.
If you ate raw, organic fruits and vegetables,
instead of toxic chemically modified foods,
and if you excercised on a daily basis,
you would be the healthiest person you know.

hahahaha..
I agree with -shaped.

The world would be much less interesting if everyone weren't messed up in fun socially acceptable ways. But yes, the better you treat your body, the better it will treat you in so many cases!

Can not agree more! Of course, the way we are headed, medicine may very well be used as social control as the drug empire grows stronger and stronger. Its laughable to think they care about you or me. Their remedies cause so much harm and long term side effects are not always known. I would not but that poison in my body.

But at this point, the state can take a parents baby away if the parents refuse to give their kid ritalin if the child is deemed in need of it by "professinals" as said parents would be seen as neglectful.

Really? What case(s) was this?

My girlfriend wants to see a doctor for ADD herself. She thinks medication may help. When she's read the symptoms to me I can relate to a lot of them, but I prefer to deal with it through astrology instead. Of course, I don't feel any sense of crisis around it, so if I do have it maybe it's not so severe.

Have it too! Don't take meds for it, used to.
I wish to God I had been diagnosed when I was a kid! I went through hell in school.
I am that magnet HSC! I'm at the time reading 7 books, have paralyzing math anxiety and I work with money. I think 20 thoughts ahead of whatever topic I'm talking about. My memory stinks! Funnt thing is that, items like tape, pencils, a particular color of paperclip, I know exactly where they are in the apt. even if I put them there a long time ago. Weird, but you gotta laugh at yourself!
Enjoy your craziness!
P.S. I think we also live literally in the moment and nothing else matters when we see that beautiful butterfly fly past us! It also helps to write things down and make lists.

Hmmmm...I also have those three planets (Mercury, Venus and Neptune) in the same house. Mine are in the 7th, though. My Mercury is conjunct my Venus, and my Venus is conjunct my Neptune.

When I went with my girlfriend to her ADHD support meeting once, it was like you could feel the Mercury in the air. Everyone was giving off Gemini and Virgo vibes. There's a certain manic quality about it.

Now, looking at my girlfriend's chart, she has a ton of placements in Mutable signs:

Sag Sun
Gemini Moon
Sag Mercury
Gemini Jupiter
Pisces Saturn
Virgo Uranus
Virgo Pluto

On top of that she has three planets in Mutable houses. Her Sun, Moon and Jupiter are in Mutable houses.

Maybe it isn't simply Mercury that causes it. Maybe it's Mutable energy altogether.

You have three planets, two of which are associated with Mutable signs concentrated in your Gemini-ruled 3rd house. That's a major amount of Mutable energy right there. Are they in a Mutable sign as well? I'd like to see your chart sometime.

I have my Moon, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Neptune and Ascendant all in Mutable signs, but only two of those planets are in Mutable houses.

That is a lot of Mutable. I'm pretty much convinced ADD is prevalent in heavily Mutable charts. Here's mine:

I think my Capricorn Sun grounds me to an extent as does it's ruler Saturn sitting in Gemini opposing my Mercury. This could serve to tame my Mercury to a certain degree.

The one I attended with her was probably a month ago. It was cool. Not something I'd want to do all the time, but I got the sense that the regulars all gained a lot from it. Like I said before, Mercury or Mutable energy was extremely pervasive in the group.

She's absolutely terrible about disciplining herself to sleep properly. At the risk of being a nag I point it out all the time. She gets in these super-stressed out depressed moods, and invariably she got way less sleep than she needs.

my ex husband had adult ADD - he hated the meds but (as he was doing study at the time) if he had an assignment he took them and it did take some of the pressure off. its not a big thing over here and very few people are diagnosed with it so he had a real feeling of shame about it - he never really came to terms with it despite being diagnosed as a child...the mother didn't help either but that is another story altogether!

Look, good luck with it all! Short lists and a pocket diary are really useful (if you get told an important date/event you can write it down straight away) another ADD friend of mine had calenders in every room of his falt and read his 'tomorrow' list before going to sleep!
