I hate it when people use a disorder as an excuse for everything. I've got ADD, which is well under control.
Unfortunately this was a bigger problem when I was little, as I was nearly put into special ed because a teacher mistook "ADD" for "Mental Impairment"
Despite the fact that I have shown, time and again that I am not "slow"(or whatever word you'd like to use to sugar coat the condition) I still think that people underestimate me, when in reality I just want to be treated like anyone else.

A classmate of mine uses his dyslexia and ADHD as an excuse FOR EVERYTHING. I'm slightly OCD but not much. And I definitely don't tell random people I have it. Wait... OK GUYS. I HAVE OCD. I said it, there -_- Oh and by the way I um... 100th the motion that Larentia-Ariadne said XD

I have OCD. I don't use it as an excuse. The person you're talking about is a sorry excuse for a person.

A friend of mine took a bad period as an excuse to get attention. She pretended and then convinced herself of being depressed. For I know how it feels to ACTUALLY want to die, I was never able to call her "my friend" as I used to.

Sounds like a 'friend' of me...
I once made a necklace and a bracelet out of daisies, and when she saw them, she started sneezing like an IDIOT. The teached said I had to take it off and gave her some water. I put off the necklace, but I forgot the bracelet. My 'friend' was all fine then, until she saw the bracelet.

SHE IMMEDEATELY STARTED SNEEZING AND COUGHING AGAIN.

Since I do, in fact, have OCD, this makes me feel sad, but oh so guilty as well.

Oh, I don't agree with ~leashankle. OCD does indeed have something to do with drinking/drugs. While using them one is less prone to the compulsive behaviours, it's easier to ignore the anxiety: it's simply fading away the more drunk or high you get. :p

They need to do their research on OCD. I have it and it's nothing like that.

Obsessive compulsive disorder has absolutly nothing to do with wanting to drink or do drugs. The disorder makes the person want "everything" to be in absolute orderly perfection.

i think parents are jsut as much to blame in this situation.
how many parents these days think their kids are a bit 'weird' or hyper or whatever, so ship them off to a shrink, DEMAND that they be diagnosed and get drugs to control it.
but yeah, it's a pain in the ass i know.
that's one of the reasons i refuse to see shrinks/go on meds or anything.
it just makes it all bullshit.

That's why I still claim ADD/ADHD does not exist.

However, I've been to a therapist. Sometimes, all you need is to vent at someone.

I really agree with what you're saying here, I completely feel for people suffering from any kind of disorder, but they still need to be held responsible for the majority of their actions, and saying it's their OCD over and over again won't help anyone

That sounds so very annoying, If I knew someone like that, I just might kill them.

Okay, so maybe not literally. But at least try to avoid this person at any rate.

OCD has nothing to do with wanting to drink, or take drugs... :hmm:

Secret-Teller: I think you're right to be annoyed by this. What your friend is doing is very immature. Find a new friend, there are lots of people in the world who are happy to be who they are, without using some shrink's cookie-cutter diagnosis as a crutch.

I agree with the first part.

But maybe the person who has "O.C.D." (be it real or fake) has to use it as an excuse to get you, the secret teller, to not judge them for merely enjoying vicodin and alcohol.

I think this person needs to learn exactly what the hell OCD is. I hate people who pretend they have disorders just to get away with things. Hell, I actually have them, and even I don't use them for an excuse. :hmm:

I second that. I'm ADD, but even I can focus on SOME things. Some idiots at school blame some of the stupidest stuff (IE setting off fire extinguishers and even a bomb threat) on Attention Deficit Disorder, and they get off with a warning. It's not just the kids that use it as an excuse to get out of trouble, but also adults who use it as an excuse to not punish children.

No, it won't. My brother's ADHD, and he doesn't do anything he can't control. He can't focus worth a damn, but he at least knows what's legal and what's not.

ok.....i spose then that if your parents dismiss every bad thing you do as being 'not their fault' or whatever, bu the time theyre older, they actually think it *is* all part of their disorder. or just know that they can blame it on that

No, my parents never subscribed to that. And he knows that I also don't put up with much.
