As someone diagnosed with ADHD, I believe the whole thing is a scam.

As far as I recall, I have always been extremely hyperactive. The most striking example is me, 22 months old, constantly riding my tricycle in the house. I used to manage my level of energy pretty well, but after entering school, my liberty to do so became increasingly restricted. Balancing my level of activity with the demands of expectation then became a major struggle.

I have spent most of my psychology degree studies investigating the causes of ADHD. I have the benefit of insight into both the body of research available and the mind of someone who is said to have ADHD. I’m 24 years old now, and it’s still impossible for me to sit for the length of a movie. But at least now I know why. I don’t have a disorder. In fact my readings and experience have both led me to a single conclusion: the concept of ADHD is nothing but a scam. A hoax, perpetuated by Big Pharma and the psychiatric industry.

ADHD has no distinguishable brain abnormality.

This is the main reason why ADHD is a scam: the legitimizing factor is a total lie. No neurological abnormality has been found in people with ADHD. While farcical “scientific” figures have plagued social media, supposedly showing “the ADHD brain”, neuroscientists remain unable to identify ADHD with a brain scan. The popularity of the notion of a chemically imbalanced brain in people with ADHD serves to legitimize the cult of the chemically imbalanced brain. However, the brain of people with ADHD doesn’t legitimize anything, because there is no unifying neurological factor in people with ADHD.
