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 a psychiatrist wants your money. So many kids are given those labels as an excuse for parents or teachers not teaching right and for laziness on the kid's part. I'm not saying that's you, but it might be. And no employer is going to lower expectations just because you think differently. Whether the 'disorder' is there or not, make the most of your mind and enjoy a productive life to the best of your abilities. I've actually found my ADD to increase my academic ability, because I use it like a boat adjusts the sails. Plus I'm learning how to let some things go. 09:58, 20 November 2013 (UTC)Dartania
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.

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)
