I know like half the kids in my grade in high school was diagnosed having ADHD >_>... I'm not saying it's not real, but even they were like "Yeah... my doctor says I have ADHD so I'm using that as an excuse when I get in trouble."

My godmum's a bit bipolar, and I already know I have some issues >_> it's just getting to the doctor... (yes I'm sorta kidding :P)

Yes, psychological disorders are pretty common. Most people, if they actually went to a psychiatrist, could probably be diagnosed with one if they complained about something interfering with their ability to function. Many people have problems that don't quite rise to that level.

I got Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder since young (as far as I remember) but it cools down and i think my ADD ranges from minor to medium and isn't that strong... my mom told me to stop watching dramas since they believe it worsens ADD ( I truly don't know if it's true),
If anyone out there who has it and wants to cure it, first you need to see a doctor and learn to understand your situation,
rather than medication, the best way I find to reduce ADD is to meditate.
I still refuse to use medication.
Alcohol/Cigs make it worse (I can't resist them tho' I'm a smoker and occasional drinker)
Moreover, it's really hard for us to focus on something, so try to actually pay attention in important classes/meetings, use recorders or take notes down if needed.
But this isn't a serious defect and you still can go around and have fun as people without ADD.

I think most people have them today because pretty much any sort of seemingly strange/unnatural/unhealthy behavior can have some label slapped on it and made into a disorder. This is happening a lot recently because most people would rather believe that they have some disorder that can be fixed with medicine rather than accept the fact that they're a little crazy. I bet my obsession with Pokemon would encourage some psychologist or whatever to label me and throw some pills at me just to make me feel better (Even though I love the fact that I love Pokemon).
