Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) should be renamed ‘Inconsistent Attention & Internal Hyperactivity’ (IAIH).
Why? ‘Because it is not a decifit of attention, but rather a problem with regulating one’s attention span to desired tasks.’ – Healthline.com
ADHD: Below is a list of some of the enhanced qualities and abilities that exceed those naturally found in non-neurotypical people and some famous celebrities including; Michael Jordan, Jamie Oilver, Will.i.am, Emma Watson, Bill Gates, Paris Hilton & Albert Einstein.

I would like to see the government do something about it, and save the struggles of everyone, especially teenagers, who learn by imitating us and in future generations; to focus on health and love.
