I was wondering how many of you deal with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), without taking pills. Honestly I am reluctant to take any kind of medication, because I am afraid it will affect my intelligence. I was blessed enough to have a genius IQ, and I have heard that taking medication for ADD will force me to not think outside the box so much, and be able to focus.
Thats great and all, but I love being able to think outside the box, I love being objective about everything, and I love being able to understand the "big picture" at all times (it bothers me when I don't). I have heard that some cases of ADD is misdiagnosed for abnormal intelligence, is that true?
So I guess my question is, how do I work with my inability to focus, instead of just taking pills?
