Sure ADD and ADHD are a thing, there are people with behavior patterns that make it hard for them to pay attention and over time it becomes ingrained into them that it is a part of them and actually changes their chemical make up. But the root of it all is completely mental. Catering to this sort of weak pathetic mental behavior with special accommodations and drugs is what makes this state of society just sad. You think there were cavemen that couldn't pay attention? No, they would die. You think there were people in the middle ages that couldn't do their job because they were hyper? No, they would be hung or beaten or some shit.
I was diagnosed as having ADHD as a kid. I can tell you that I did not have a disorder. Wanting to play outside instead of sit in a classroom is incredibly orderly behaviour for a child.
