Off Topic / How does the Blockland forum feel about ADHD?

Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder

I'm currently writing a research paper in college Humanities on ADHD and my experiences and general research into it this year. This was after my own personal decision to go back on Ritalin for concentration and motivational help.

I've always seen a decent amount of controversy surrounding this diagnosis, its own existence, and the heated debate of parents and/or physicians doping kids up in school to help make them focus more.

So... be honest: what do you guys think about ADHD? Is it real or bullstuff? Be 100% honest, I'm genuinely curious about public opinion here.

My eyes... I thought by mistake I hit a mobile Reddit link.


They are calling this situation "Day Zero", literally the prediction of when Cape Town, South Africa will have run out of water.

Ok, so I'm doing Johns Hopkins' Title IX course, basically on harassment, and it brought up the term "bl** j**". I actually have no idea what that means and I'm legit confused about the context. Wtf are they talking about?

A.K.A. a stuffty situation

According to Mayo Clinic:
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine (colon). Irritable bowel syndrome commonly causes cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation. IBS is a chronic condition that you will need to manage long term.

So yeah uh, I've been suffering from these symptoms ever since the beginning of my senior year of high school, and I've been recently diagnosed with it (IBS-M). I was just wondering if anyone else suffers from it. Pretty annoying honestly.

There are 3 general types.
  • IBS-C: Constipation
  • IBS-D: Diarrhea
  • IBS-A/M: Alternating/Mixed

I know this isn't the most pleasant thread ever, but it actually is important. People are embarrassed to talk about this stuff, which can really delay treatment for more serious conditions, like colon cancer. If you feel awkwardness, pain, or discomfort during a bathroom break, you really should talk to your doctor. They will not judge you; they are there to help.

In fact, there are active communities that promote discussion about this. Reddit has a pretty helpful one over at r/ibs.

Read more about IBS at Mayo Clinic and WebMD.

A lot of people who suffer from IBS endorse the low FODMAP diet. Read more about what FODMAPs are here and what a low FODMAP diet would consist of here.

Many others have also taken probiotics. Popular ones consist of Align and VSL#3. Read more about probiotics here.

If you haven't checked him out, he's a Jontron-esque comedian and musician criticizing SJWs and just stupid stuff.

His latest video is just great:

Hey BL forums, haven't posted in a while. Might as well come back on.


I find some subreddits particularly hostile, not much outside of that.
