It serves to be reminded that we're not in a sausage factory here - pushing out the same little product in either a skirt or pants. No, what is contained in that thin membrane of skin is a completely unknowable bag of potential - and part of the unfolding of life is for the person themselves to take time and repeated attempts at something (anything) to start to get an inkling of what that potential could be leading up to. Repressed potential due to fear of failure is so sad, and you can look at anyone in any decade to see that! The days of being pushed into mummy and daddy's limiting perspective of how you might be, or face the rest of your life living with rejection and non-acceptance, are finally over. Yay! I feel a celebration coming on.

Certainly thought provoking.

The question is however if there is suffering involved for the ADHS child on some level or not, even if only long-term. ADHS is not an easy life for some children (and later as youngsters or adults).

Children are normally very active, so this is still a part of 'normal' childhood behaviour. The general criticism is often that it gets diagnosed way too much. Some even argue that as a pathology it does not even really exist but just as a ploy for Big Pharma to prescibe their Ritalin drugs.

On the other hand, we have today so many factors in our society that might contribute to this behaviour such as e.g. overload of multimedia, electric radiation, food contamination, vaccines, drugs, constantly extroverted and ego-driven narcissistic (had to look it up how it's spelled honestly) behaviour fostered by social media, etc.

We also could do the same for the other "extreme" side of the (pathological?) spectrum: Autism / Aspergers / Savants. Personally, I see even more positive and less pathologal aspects in their behaviour, but maybe because as an introvert myself I sympathise or even 'identify' in part with this side of the spectrum.

Thank you for the synopsis, Sinera. I have a twin brother on the Autism/Aspergers spectrum, but not to the extent that it stops him living a "normal" life. It does make it harder for people to connect to him, though. I think this is a soul choice, as I was not born with it. When we were children, I was taken out of the middle of a school lesson to go to be tested, since they thought as his twin I must be the same. What a shock it must have been for them to find out that boy/girl twins not only have obvious differences, but in my view, the soul inhabiting the body is indeed quite different, with different multidimensional pathway histories/futures and different ways of being whilst being in this body in this life. Needless to say, my twin tested very highly on the intelligence quotient (IQ) I think between 120-130, and that pipped me, for sure (mine being high, but not in that range). It is sad that his Autism/Aspergers symptoms eclipse that level of intelligence, meaning he has the intelligence, but has difficulty in applying it, at least in a meaningful way when communicating with others.

On the other hand, my daughter believes she has ADD although that is not diagnosed and is not treated with Ritalin. What it means is that she is always saying she is bored, and she can't connect for long with any subject in particular, not even in conversation (which is frustrating for me as I like conversation!) When I look back on my life, I have never known a minute when I actually stated I was bored. Everything is fascinating, everything can go deeper, new secrets or occult meanings get turned inside out all the time, coming up to the light of day (especially on this forum, I find). Reading books is a treasure trove. But my daughter finds everything boring, nothing is worth the effort, and mind-glazing is her idea of fun. Having met many of her friends, I'm wondering if this is a generational thing? Is there some way where we as parents have failed in getting that young generation (millennial - born 2000 or later) to open up to the interest to be had in everything surrounding and within them?

Or is this just another effect of the evolution we are all currently moving through? I do feel potentially they are not connecting to things of 3D too much, because all that is going to change for them within their life times, and on a soul level they know that.

I get the impression these are maybe multi dimensional beings with a better understanding of out world and an inability to communicate (are they telepathic?) with us that drives a frustration- "Why don't these people get it?"I think they maybe more suited to post ascension life then now. Maybe they are Vanguards?

I LOVE THIS! me and my ten year old daughter are very ADHD and she asked me a while ba ck if there was something wrong with her; if it was a bad thing... I told her that it wasn't her that everyone else is just viberating on a much slower level and they cant keep up so its not a problem for you its only a problem for those who dont keep up with her.

I heard that the very popular Percy Jackson series of books for kids started as bedside stories told by a father to his son as a way to explain that the boy's ADHD symptoms were really survival mechanisms for demigods<3... and I guess the stories progressed from there.
