I am one of the 15 Million

This is how one person describes her ADHD. Most people with ADHD can identify with this description in one form or another.
ADHD is a brain-based disorder characterized by developmentally inappropriate impulsivity, inattention, and in some cases, hyperactivity. It affects children, teens, and adults. ADHD does not discriminate by race or sexual orientation and is not gender-specific. ADHD affects the way a child learns in school. It even takes a toll on the other children in the classroom. ADHD makes it difficult to maintain healthy relationships with spouses, co-workers, or friends. ADHD can cause someone to have low self-esteem, feel excluded in groups, and disrupts both professional and personal lives.
Simply, ADHD is real. Nearly 15 million people in the US have ADHD. As this number increases, the need for factual information also increases:
• Schools need information on ADHD to better assist children with the disorder and help them succeed beyond ADHD.
• Parents need information on ADHD to better understand their child, recognize symptoms, select the best treatments, and learn strategies that will help their child.
• Employers need information on ADHD to understand how to maximize productivity of staff with ADHD.
• Everyone with ADHD needs information on the disorder in order to understand their rights, what treatments may or may not work for them, and connect with other who "get" them.
Organizations providing science-based information on ADHD are few and far between. CHADD is a nonprofit that provides this valuable and authoritative information to all affected by ADHD. If you are a parent of a child with ADHD, a spouse of someone with ADHD, a teacher, a friend, or even if YOU have ADHD, CHADD needs your help to continue to meet the needs of the ADHD community. If every one of the 15 million affected by ADHD donated at least $1, CHADD could continue its work to inform teachers, assist parents, operate local support groups, and provide information to physicians, pediatricians, or therapists who treat ADHD.

I am #Oneof15M I found CHADD after being expelled from the Physician Assistant Program at Concordia University Wisconsin. After 9 months of appeals and CUW's blatant disregard for educational law, I have now taken my story viral. CHADD is an amazing and empowering organization, and I am eternally grateful that I found this resource. I would not have had the courage to take my story viral, had it not been for them. If you would more information here is my blog posting link: http://simplyoneword.blogspot.com/2015/05/advocacy.html?view=flipcard
Scientist here. ADHD can be alleviated by taking by mouth 250mg of healthy adult male facial skin surface lipid (mostly sebaceous) on a chewing gum vehicle. Can you afford three packs of gum? Have you got 30 minutes free time over three days? You can cure somebody with ADHD. Wipe a man's face with 4 or 5 pieces of ordinary, new, fresh, unchewed Wrigley's sugarless gum. Be careful to keep the gum clean. We use dinner plates to hold gum while it is being collected. Illuminate both sides of each piece of gum with UV light at antiseptic wavelength. Battery powered hand UV lamps can be bought at any drug store in the US. Re-wrap the gum. Continue for three days until you have collected 250mg or about 15 pieces of Wrigley's gum saturated with face grease. The grease must come from a man of father age from skin only a child would kiss: face, neck, chin, cheeks, nose, forehead. Do not collect from anywhere else, especially not the scalp. The pheromone you are collecting is usually passed by fatherly affection with his children. When you have a dose of about 250mg, label it "home remedy" and "not for sale". Give the gum to the person with ADHD to chew thoroughly and all at one time. IMPORTANT, let them sit in front of an electric oscillating fan while chewing the gum. Isolate ADHD kid from kissing anyone for 40 days and keep 10 feet from them. If you must get close to them, hold your breath. When 40 days are up, no worries.

I Love #oneof15M......We have come so far over the decades in the treatment and support of families whose children struggle with ADHD. But I see everyday the constant struggles that are not supported in schools!
