    Dealing with Distractions and Overreactions
    March 29, 2011 : More than five million American children and teens have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, a condition that makes it difficult - if not impossible - to focus and complete tasks. When Katherine Ellison found herself yelling at her son constantly to shut up, she didn't know that he had ADHD, nor that she had it too. Together, they embarked on a year-long quest to understand the disorder, investigating and trying different treatments. Ellison chronicled their experiences in a new book, Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention.

    To date not ONE DOCTOR I have encountered has suggested that I stop smoking marijuana even though I always tell them that that is the only medication I take.

    And yes, at least two of them suggested that I continue to smoke it for health reasons.

    But NO, they will not prescribe that drug.

    Why?

    Because they work for the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, folks, and they like having a job.
