    Stacy, I love you. LOL (I feel your pain.) The verbal bullshit we have to put up with, to keep the peace, is ridiculous.

    Laz, mind blowing!

    I find that, when confronting people, instead of being demonstrative (which pisses people off), you can beg the question.

    "Why is it ok for you to say, ask me about my steak, when -- I suspect -- you might find it shocking or rude for me to ask you about your chips?"

    My rant for the day, medication and more medication. Don't address any conditions with nutrition and lifestyle changes (Big Pharma and doctors don't make money off of that), MEDICATE SURGERY! That is the answer! And highly profitable.

    Latest insanity??? DAYDREAMING! Oh, we have a pill for that! And when that pill causes side effects, we have another pill for that!

    The only disorder is the processed crap that kids eat (and yes, my boy loves pasta and weetbix )

    Soon kids will be drugged for simply being born!

    Basically, the below is all I need to read about the nonsense of medicating kids for daydreaminess. Follow the money. Like the pharmaceutical industry doesn't make enough money off of medicating kids already.

    Some of the researchers who contributed to the journal issue have financial ties to the the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly. They'd previously published research on the ADHD drug Strattera as a possible treatment for the condition.

    And

    In a blog post for Psychology Today, Frances was more blunt:

    "Sluggish Cognitive Tempo may possibly be the very dumbest and most dangerous diagnostic idea I have ever encountered," he wrote. "The very same experts who succeeded in promoting ADHD have now concocted and are promoting a new diagnosis that would be a terrific bonanza for pharmaceuticals, but terrible for kids who would be misdiagnosed and over-treated."

    I would have been on TONS of those meds Zanna.....I remember as a kid that I considered it a completely worthwhile activity to go outside, lean against our big tree in the yard, and stare at the sky. I would do this for hours, to the point that my father nailed some boards into the tree base so I would at least have a flat surface to lean against.

    "Where is our son?"
    "Oh, out at his tree."

    No one even thought that was unusual My mom always thought it would just make me more creative.

    I think kids would be better off if they spent more time doing precisely what Laz did, out of school, under a tree, staring at the sky. I'm a big advocate of daydreaming. I did it a lot as a child.

    Me too! Still do a lot of daydreaming. I was always finding quiet places outside to lie down and stare at the sky. The thought of making kids like that take meds to hit some sort of functional flat line so pharm companies can get richer is sickening. Not to get all sci-fi dork, but it's like we're being readied for the Borg collective. Create a social norm of intolerance/shame for X behavior, followed by diagnostic tools and meds to weed it out. Inflict the cure on a generation of kids and have ready-made bots to do your bidding when they are adults and their brains have been altered by years of living in a mental box.
