re: Simone Biles and ADHD medication
I’m not saying it isn’t over prescribed, but I’m 40 and I still take it everyday that I have work. I don’t feel like I’m on speed when I take it. I feel like it is easier for me to stay on task, especially if I’m in front of my PC or reading a lot. I also have a motor muscle disorder in my eyes (it basically causes my eyes to track at different speeds, so it somewhat mimics dyslexia) and I believe it helps with that, but I have no medical data to back that up. Just my own observation.

Can I get by without it? Sure, but I’m much better at work when I take it.

This is me too, pretty much all of it except the eye stuff. I take a smaller dose now and don’t take it everyday anymore, but I’m 36 and still take it and have since I was 14

You do realize she didn't use this as an excuse nor a reason right?

If you are going to castigate her it would probably be smarter to point to things she did not third parties.

I don’t think this is why they don’t have drug and crime.


Japan has actually been seeing a high increase in illegal drug use over the last couple of decades they just started from a lower initial point.

They diagnose ADD and ADHD like its the common cold now in elementary school.


I remember in South Park they diagnosed everyone with ADD because they "couldn't pay attention."

Maybe that's helped her be so good all this time.

Being on basically amphetamines.
