We are lucky for the comic title, since otherwise I wouldn't be so sure this only apply to people with ADD ... in current world, there are so many things wanting your attention that they may overhelm even normal people (of course not so easily). --Hkmaly (talk) 08:21, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

I agree. You don't have to be ADD to relate. Then again, doesn't everyone who isn't autistic have some amount of attention deficit? It seems like everyone fits under one label or the other these days. -- 21:33, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Hey, I'm autistic and I have ADD. 22:00, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

I think that's very little data to go on to jump to "a psychiatrist wants your money". Axes to grind best left out of casual, low-information exchanges on the internet I think. 05:15, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
Oi, I know someone who has autism, it is on NO MEANS the parents fault or the kid's laziness. It is IMPOSSIBLE to "make the most out of this" and be productive if you had seen someone try to focus on this., please think how these people feel before commenting.

Let's settle this. I am diagnosed with ADHD and autism. The psychiatrist means well, and is probably right about autism. With ADHD, you probably also have this but most people on the medicine don't actually need the medicine. Of course, if you are not in the USA/Germany, this doesn't apply
It does closely resemble the executive dysfunction (and/or 'task intertia') experienced by some autistic people. Definitely can relate to this comic via executive dysfunction, though I don't have ADD. 05:15, 2 March 2016 (UTC)

you're not allowed to have both? 21:48, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Is there an opposite to autism/ADD where you find them all interesting as hell and are able to pick and choose and have an hell of a time but get put off easily by failure except where you stick at the one that is widely believed to be impossible because everyone else fails too and it's OK and you eventually find the various solutions to it all?

And nobody cares? I used Google News BEFORE it was clickbait (talk) 19:33, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Delete Discussion Box[edit]

Is it possible to delete this discussion box? There's a lot of harmful comments about ADHD and Autism, and I really don't think that visitors to this site would appreciate this blatant ableism. If it's not possible to get rid of the box, can we please get rid of the comments? Thank you. TrippCeyssens (talk) 20:26, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

This issue has now been addressed.


For the transcript, can we think of a way to convey not just the left-to-right balloon order (as the transcript for the full-width panel currently indicates) but also the relative height of each balloon? River 04:31, 13 March 2021 (UTC)River

I added numbers for the height, not a perfect solution though. toby1 (talk) 07:22, 29 April 2024 (UTC)
