Is this poster some kind of sick joke?
It really, really, infuriates me when people think that ADD/ADHD can be cured with a stern hand and enforced rules from parents. Do you think that any behavioural disorder or illness can be magically fixed by “good parenting”?
Jesus fucking christ. Ritalin is actually a tablet that helps people reach their full potential. Without it, there’s no possible way that I could attend school, do homework, enjoy people’s company properly or live a normal life. What people don’t know is that ADHD is closely linked with Bipolar, Depression and Anxiety disorders. It’s not just kids who bounce off walls and stab people.
A ridiculous amount of people underestimate the power of mental illness. Depressed people need to “cheer up”, suffering Anorexics need to “just eat” and people with Bipolar just need to “calm down”.
I’m over people generalising mental illness like they are some kind of doctor. Either know what you’re talking about, or shut the fuck up.
