    I’m diagnosed with ADHD. I can’t focus on most stuff but I found out that
    if I really liked something, I could focus on it more than an average
    person would. =) (from experience)

    ADHD pills are basically dopamine pills? That sounds dangerously addictive,
    even as much as cigarettes.

    advantage lol
