    This. I'm aware OCD is real, but a lot will say they have OCD because "that tile out of place in the floor is bothering me", while they don't have problems like walking out of a door, locking it, check the handle to see that it's locked, then unlock the door, to go back in and lock it, close it, then do the checking again to make sure it's locked. And possibly even unlocking and locking it again.

    My ex would get mad at me when she'd say her being a neat freak was her having "OCD", when really, it's just being particular, and not a thing that's life ruining and makes you risk being late for work or unable to function around people, like OCD causes.

    Hyperbole is the native tongue of the internet age.
    If all of mankind minus one were of of one opinion, and only one person of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

    ADHD is an ability to control your impulses.
    There is no doubt that it is made much worse by poor parenting and discipline. Nobody is born being able to control all their impulses, it is learnt behavior and needs to be done when neural pathways are forming.
    So it is a real condition that is sometimes created or made worse by poor parenting, but it does occur even with diligent parents.

    Your knowledge of your sister and two kids is not a large enough sample to say anything categorically.

    5 instead of 2 doesn't mean your sample size is any less flawed. I'm not disputing that asshole kids and asshole parents exist. That doesn't change the fact that ADD and ADHD are disorders that exist that kids suffer from, regardless of the sort of environment they grow up in.

    TJ's an expert on fake diseases. I mean, he does have that fatal food allergy that is undiagnosed.

    What does that have to do with anything? 3 days in the hospital is fake? A coma is fake? "F" You! and your little cartoon icon. It's an allergy related to fish. Cant narrow it down to a spefic one @sshole!

    I just figured it was apart of your trolling you do on here. An instance where your fake disease is real, but other's real disease is fake. Something like that.

    My sister used to claim she was allergic to sausage because she didn't want it on pizza. If one person fakes food allergies, they all do so food allergies are bullshit and should be spanked out of existence. #TJLogic

    OK, we have fun, we do. but in all honesty I did almost die and spent a couple nights in the hospital because of an allergic reaction. The attending doc actually used the word "miracle" about my surviving and then again when my tests came in showing that I had no long term damage to my cardio-pulmonary system. Two miracles. I'm one away from sainthood

    My sisters kids don't have food allergies, so they don't exist.

    Therefore ADHD must also not exist.
