Well, I guess that made him pretty good casting for his character in G.L.O.W.

Almost every country with a halfway modern economy has, on the whole, better medical care than the USA.

We're like 39th in the world or something.

I "had" ADD as a kid - but I assumed I had outgrown it b/c I can handle a job and my responsibilities mostly, most days.

But lately someone was talking about adult ADD and I was mentally checking a lot of boxes while they were talking:

Difficulty falling asleep

Difficulty transitioning between tasks

Heroic efforts at normal schedules, followed by crashes

Peaks and valleys of ability to expend effort

Difficulty transitioning between things, esp social situations


edit: apparently, repeating myself...

What advice do you have for people trying to make the transition from childhood ADD to adult ADD?

This is a great and well measured answer.

In my experience, video games are more harmful if parents or guardians don't take the time to discuss them and monitor what their children are doing, both in game and online.

I've definitely found this to be true, and when we find a game that I enjoy and think is appropriate, and my kids do as well, then we can all have fun gaming together (within their allotted screen time).
