Leon Eisenberg, “The Father/Inventor Of ADHD”, on his deathbed (via ronenreblogs)
Too many people tell me that they suffer from ADHD when, to me, they suffer from the consequence of bad design. Are you familiar with the Social construct theory of ADHD:
Psychiatrists Peter Breggin and Sami Timimi oppose pathologizing the symptoms of ADHD. Sami Timimi, who is an NHS child and adolescent psychiatrist, explains ADHD as a social construct rather than an objective ‘disorder’. Timimi argues that western society creates stress on families which in turn suggests environmental causes for children expressing the symptoms of ADHD. They also believe that parents who feel they have failed in their parenting responsibilities can use the ADHD label to absolve guilt and self-blame. A common argument against the medical model of ADHD asserts that while the traits that define ADHD exist and may be measurable, they lie within the spectrum of normal healthy human behaviour and are not dysfunctional. However, by definition, in order to diagnose with a mental disorder, symptoms must be interpreted as causing a person distress / espec. maladaptive. In America, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV) requires that “some impairment from the symptoms is present in two or more settings” and that “there must be clear evidence of significant impairment in social, school, or work functioning” for a diagnosis of ADHD to be made.
